THE DEAD­LINE is ap­proach­ing to sub­mit en­tries for this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards.

There is now only a few weeks to go un­til the dead­line for en­tries into the awards which celebrate the best of busi­ness in the area.

There are 10 award cat­e­gories which are open to en­try from busi­nesses from across the area and both self and third party nom­i­na­tions come.

The awards will recog­nise out­stand­ing achieve­ment, lead­er­ship and a pos­i­tive con­tri­bu­tion to the suc­cess of the lo­cal busi­ness com­mu­nity.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives from Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, which runs the awards, are urg­ing busi­nesses to sub­mit en­tries.

They say that past win­ners have en­joyed a boost to their busi­nesses on the back of the awards.

Jayne Pick­stone, from the cham­ber, said: “North East Cheshire has a vast ar­ray of tal­ented and suc­cess­ful busi­nesses, many of which go un­recog­nised.

“So whether you are just set­ting out or are well es­tab­lished, we would urge all busi­nesses in the re­gion to en­ter the awards.

“If you’re proud of your suc­cesses, then why not high­light them and en­ter?

“En­ter­ing will not only raise your pro­file through the awards press and ra­dio cov­er­age, but your busi­ness will be show­cased to some of the most in­flu­en­tial peo­ple in the re­gion from the public and pri­vate sec­tors.

“The ob­jec­tive judg­ing process pro­vides cred­i­ble endorsement of the suc­cess of your busi­ness.

“And just as im­por- tantly, it will show your team that you care and will help you re­flect on who has con­trib­uted to your suc­cess.

“It is ab­so­lutely free to en­ter and you can sub­mit as many cat­e­gories as you wish.”

En­tries must be re­ceived by 5pm on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 30.

The cat­e­gories are Busi­ness of the Year with Turnover over £5 mil­lion; Busi­ness of the Year with Turnover £1 mil­lion to £5 mil­lion; Small Busi­ness of the Year; In­no­va­tion and De­sign; Ex­cel­lence in Cus­tomer Ser­vice; Team of the Year; Best use of So­cial Media; Start-up of the Year; Best De­sign/ Cre­ative Cam­paign; and Best Com­pany to Work For

Win­ners will be pre­sented with their tro­phies at a gala din­ner tak­ing place on Thurs­day, Novem­ber at The Mere.

En­try forms are avail­able via necbawards.co.uk.
