Last chance to make bid for awards

Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS - KAREN BRIT­TON

BUSI­NESS types have just one week to go to get en­tries in for this year’s North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards.

The glit­ter­ing awards of­fer a chance for busi­nesses of all types in Mac­cles­field and the area to have a go at win­ning an hon­our for mak­ing a con- tri­b­u­tion to the busi­ness com­mu­nity.

The or­gan­is­ers of the event say it’s an op­portu- nity not to be missed to get a bit of recog­ni­tion for your busi­ness and meet other like-minded peo­ple from com­pa­nies who could help your firm thrive.

The dead­line for busi­nesses to en­ter the awards is now only a week away - on Wed­nes­day, Septem­ber 30 - so or­gan­is­ers from the Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, which sup­ports busi­nesses in the town, urge peo­ple to get en­tries sub­mit­ted.

Sue Bow­den, from the cham­ber which is han­dling all the or­gan­i­sa­tion and ad­min­is­tra­tion for the awards, said: “The num­ber of en­tries we’ve had so far is way up on last year.

“The mo­men­tum is re­ally build­ing as aware­ness and in­ter­est in the awards just gets bet­ter ev­ery year. There’s less than a week to go now to the en­try dead­line so don’t miss out.

“Get writ­ing that win­ning en­try now and be part of this fan­tas­tic cel­e­bra­tion of busi­ness in North East Cheshire.”

There are 10 award cat­e­gories which celebrate the best of busi­ness in the area at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony later this year.

They are open to en­try from busi­nesses from across the area and both self and third party nom­i­na­tions are welcome.

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

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 on Thurs­day, Novem­ber 19 at The Mere. En­try forms are avail­able by vis­it­ing necbawards.co.uk.
