Entries are now open to compete in the fourteenth annual Chamber Business Awards – hosted by the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC).
This prestigious competition is one of the highlights of the business calendar and aims to recognise and promote the best of British business through regional heats, ending in a Gala Awards Dinner at the Brewery, London on the 30th November.
St Helens Chamber Members can nominate themselves across a range of categories, with entries open until Friday 30th June.
Companies can enter nine categories covering exports, small business, people development, technology, high-growth, customer service, partnerships with the education sector, social media, and health and wellbeing.
Frances Martin, President of the British Chambers of Commerce said: “Each time I visit Chamber member businesses, it is inspiring to see so many companies finding innovative ways to grow their business in every corner of the UK. The Awards acknowledge the relentless efforts of these businesses and their talented employees.
“Businesses are the driving force of the UK economy, creating jobs, growth and prosperity, and helping Britain to maintain its reputation internationally. This is exactly why it is important for us to recognise and celebrate the contribution they make to their local communities and the wider economy.”
This year’s Awards are being launched at the London Stock Exchange, where last year’s winner of Business of the Year, Scientifica, have won the special honour of opening the Exchange as a prize. Next year’s winners will have the same chance to do so, a rare opportunity for a private business.
Adrian Corbin of Scientifica, Winner of the ‘Business of the Year’ award last year, said: “Everyone at Scientifica is incredibly proud that the company won Business of the Year at the Chamber Business Awards 2016.
“It is an enormous achievement and a fitting testimony to all the hard work that has gone into creating such a great company.”
