The Enterprise North Shore business development organisation recently held the celebration event for the announced finalists in the 2008 Westpac Enterprise North Shore Excellence in Business. SimDeck was there to add the buzz activity for the evening event outside the Westpac bank offices.

Ngaio Merrick, Project Co-ordinator for ENS and now budding high speed sim driver, decided that the SimDeck experience was the “must do it” event for the highly acknowledged business competition that acknowledges many of the North Shore businesses who enter the annual business competition.

The business competition sponsored by a range of succesful North Shore companies is to encourage and assist companies grow and meet higher levels of success both in New Zealand and off-shore.

The SimDeck event was appreciated by a number of business people who attended the event and none more so than the three category winners who took away their respective cup and bottles of champagne.

The competition was very tight – both verbally and in racing – but one finalist stood out with a time of just 56 seconds round the track which many others could not negotiate in less than a minute. Carl Le Vert, a software engineer, from Flow B2B Software took away the trophy and champagne on the night.
The Awards Sponsors also competed and it was the General Manager of the North Shore Times, Alan Barr, who proved his mettle as he took away the Fastest Sponsor trophy with a time of 1.02 minutes.  Andy Burrows from Icon Business Solutions was the Fastest Judge on the night with a time of 58 seconds.
