Seeking the best in the business
Awards for the best companies in Bucks
THE search has begun for Buckinghamshire’s best companies in a competition celebrating business talent.
Buckinghamshire Business First is now accepting nominations for the best business in the county as part of its annual awards.
The awards, supported by the Buckinghamshire Advertiser and Examiner Series and getbucks.co.uk, are a highlight of the business calendar and celebrate the ‘can-do’ spirit which makes Bucks the ‘entrepreneurial heart of Britain’, says the group’s head of marketing, Lynsey Dunn.
Ms Dunn added: “Just being nominated allows a business to create a buzz with customers and it is a great opportunity to give your staff recognition and take pride in what they are doing.
“We have businesses that have entered for different categories which gives them an opportunity to show off their strengths.
“We have got a really diverse business community in Bucks. The fact that we have very small businesses means that we can take advantage of lots of opportunities.”

Tony Laurenson from the company said: “Winning two Buckinghamshire Business Awards was a wonderful honour and it was such a fantastic night for Global Infusion Group. The awards gave us a real boost and got
