BWIO aims to recognise the success and vitality of the global business sector empowering both the local and international business community. The awards are the most prestigious annual event of the organisation honouring outstanding performers.

The BWIO awards are the highest honour within the Asia-Pacific region. The main goal of the Awards program is primarily to help the Sri Lankan business sector to grow and prosper.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a broad approach for creating, maintaining and expanding customer relationships. CRM is the business strategy that aims to understand, anticipate, manage and personalise the needs of current and potential customers in an organisation and build loyalty.

Over the years, Vision 8 Academy (V8A) has taken several initiatives to address these concerns and initiated programs on how CRM can be used by the present day Dynamic Banking and Finance Company employees to provide a superior customer service, while enhancing the capability to cross-sell financial services/products to their customers. Vision 8 Academy is headed by Visionary Entrepreneur Tissa Jayaweera PhD.
