THE CAT­E­GORIES

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Business Update -

Busi­nesses with “in­no­va­tion, drive and pru­dent fi­nan­cial man­age­ment” have been called upon to en­ter the KEiBA 2014 Awards.

Past win­ners hailed the ben­e­fits of win­ning a prize at a launch at­tended by more than 200 guests from firms across the county.

As the na­tion emerges from the eco­nomic mire, com­pa­nies were en­cour­aged to show how they have thrived in a dif­fi­cult busi­ness land­scape.

Guests at the St Lawrence Ground, Can­ter­bury, heard from rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the KM Group and KCC, who are run­ning the awards for a sixth year.

KM Group man­ag­ing di­rec­tor Richard El­liot said: “Awards are a pow­er­ful and cost-ef­fec­tive mar­ket­ing tool and win­ning a pres­ti­gious KEiBA will help your or­gan­i­sa­tion to stand out from the crowd, boost staff morale, send a pos­i­tive mes­sage to your ex­ist­ing cus­tomers and help at­tract new ones.”

KCC cab­i­net mem­ber for eco­nomic growth Cllr Mark Dance said: “KEiBA is a great way for busi­nesses to shine and for other com­pa­nies to learn from the good prac­tice they demon­strate.”

The awards are free to en­ter and open to any busi­ness or or­gan­i­sa­tion based and op­er­at­ing in the Kent and Med­way area, ex­clud­ing Lon­don Bor­ough post­codes such as Brom­ley, Bex­ley and Or­p­ing­ton.
