Macclesfield Express - - BUSINESS SME BUSINESS TIPS - STU­ART GREER

THE DEAD­LINE for en­tries into the North East Cheshire Busi­ness Awards has been ex­tended.

Or­gan­is­ers of the awards, which aim to celebrate the area’s busi­nesses, have given com­pa­nies an ex­tra week to en­ter.

Now in their fifth year, they will cul­mi­nate with a black tie gala din­ner at pre­vi­ous win­ners The Mere Golf Re­sort and Spa in Knutsford, on Thurs- day, Novem­ber 19.

This year there are 10 cat­e­gories and en­tries are welcome from all busi­nesses, re­gard­less of size.

The dead­line was set for Septem­ber 30, but has been ex­tended to next Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10.

Or­gan­is­ers from the Mac­cles­field Cham­ber of Com­merce, which sup­ports busi­nesses in the town, urge peo­ple to get en­tries sub­mit­ted.

Sue Bow­den, from the cham­ber, said: “En­tries are still com­ing in so we wanted to give peo­ple more of a chance to be part of the awards.

“I would urge busi­nesses to en­ter – what have you got to lose?

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

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 con­tri­bu­tion to the busi­ness com­mu­nity.

The or­gan­is­ers of the event say it’s an op­por­tu­nity 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.

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 Wed­nes­day, Oc­to­ber 10. 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.
