Raise your company’s profile
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.
