Now or never for Somerset Business Awards
4:20pm Wednesday 22nd August 2012 in News
WITH only a week until entries for the 2012 Somerset Business Awards close, it’s now or never for Somerset businesses to enter.
Now in their seventh year, the awards have earned a prestigious reputation and are attracting increasing numbers of businesses each year.
A recent breakfast workshop organised by Somerset Chamber of Commerce and main awards sponsors Albert Goodman with input from ADPR gave over 30 businesses essential advice on how to shine in the awards.
Roger Player, managing director of Sun Traffic Signals and one of the attendees at the breakfast workshop, said: “It was great to see such successful case studies from previous years, illustrating how winning an award has transformed their business – it gives me something to aspire to.”
Special Horses for Special Children’s founder and managing director Lilias Ahmeira also attended the event and gave a short speech about how winning the awards pushed her business into the limelight.
Chris Ryder, Director at ADPR, said: “The Somerset Business Awards are becoming increasingly more competitive and standards are rising year on year, making it an even more influential accolade to win. The breakfast workshop was held to help businesses understand how to showcase their company and place them in the best position to submit a winning application.”
The Somerset Business Awards are open to Somerset companies of all types and sizes.
Businesses can nominate themselves and are welcome to enter more than one category, but should make multiple applications online, ensuring they differentiate between the criteria of each award.
