2021 Business Excellence Awards

The 2021 Business Excellence Awards

While our signature event was moved to a virtual event premiering on November 18, 2021, Think Dutchess still wanted to celebrate with 2020 and the 2021 winners safely.

At an intimate event on Tuesday, November 16, this year and last year’s winners gathered for a small celebration to be presented their awards and preview the video that premiered November 18 at 5:30 pm. The video premiere can be viewed HERE.

Take a peek at the winner’s event at Shadows on the Hudson below.
