Phase 5's Stephan Sigaud Named a Judge for CanadianSME Awards

Phase 5 is pleased to announce that Stephan Sigaud, EVP Marketing has once again been selected by Canadian SME Business Magazine to be a judge for the CanadianSME National Business Awards. Deadline for award nominations is February 25, 2023.

The CanadianSME National Business Awards honour entrepreneurs and small businesses from coast to coast, and we are honoured to be a part of such an important event celebrating the achievements of small businesses in Canada. This is an excellent chance to assist small businesses in gaining recognition for their efforts. Award categories include Customer Service Excellence, Best Business Innovation, Digital Business of the Year, and Entrepreneur of the Year, just to name a few.

Stephan's professional experience, his passion for customer-centricity, and his work on helping big brands better understand the needs of the small & medium business segment make him a perfect candidate for this important role. His article "Financial Services for Small Business Owners: Top 3 Moments of Truth" was published in CanadianSME Business Magazine, and in November 2021, Stephan was a featured speaker on CanadianSME Small Business Podcast. Furthermore, Stephan led Phase 5 in a deep dive State of SMB study in 2021 and leveraged the results to produce industry specific insights for financial services, tech, telecomm, and logistics. This work has also been utilized by several individual Phase 5 clients through the creation of custom reports to reveal findings most relevant to their organizations' regions and challenges. Watch for an updated version of this study, coming in 2023.

If you are a small business or if your clients are small businesses, don’t miss the chance to have your / their accomplishments celebrated at the most prestigious event in the small business industry—submit your applications or nominations now!
