Chester, Cheshire (PRWEB UK) 19 December 2014
Cheshire businesses have until 5 January to get their entries in for the High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise.
Running in partnership with the University of Chester, the High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise is Cheshire’s most prestigious competition for business achievement. With seven categories, the annual event recognises and celebrates outstanding business performance among private organisations of all sizes in Cheshire, Halton and Warrington.
As well as the chance to pick up an esteemed award, the annual competition gives winners and finalists the chance to raise their profile and gain regional recognition. Companies that wish to align themselves with the awards will also benefit from a host of advertising opportunities, including an exclusive PR campaign. In addition, the event provides business owners with a valuable opportunity to network with fellow entrepreneurs and demonstrate corporate social responsibility.
Previous winners have also used the accolade as a platform to pursue future business ambitions by garnering the attention of clients, partners and investors.
The awards ceremony will take place in Chester Town Hall on 26th March 2015. It will host some of Cheshire’s most successful business leaders, government officials and sponsors, with Prof Phil Redmond CBE and Alexis Redmond MBE set to be this year’s guest speakers.
The Office of the High Sheriff is a Royal post, which dates back to Saxon times. The current High Sheriff of Cheshire, Susan Sellers, said: “As High Sheriff of Cheshire for 2014/15 I am delighted to support these valuable awards and hope they will both give encouragement to and act as a showcase for many of the fantastic businesses and business people that we have across Cheshire, Warrington and Halton.”
Professor Phil Harris, Executive Director of the University of Chester’s Business Research Institute, said: “Cheshire has a tremendous range of businesses and these Awards celebrate the wide breadth and diversity of some wonderful companies, people and businesses that make the regional economy tick.
“We look forward to welcoming the winner of the MBA programme and offer them the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of studying at the University of Chester.”
For shortlisted finalists, a representative will be invited to attend the dinner and ceremony free of charge.
To be eligible for the High Sheriff’s Awards for Enterprise, businesses are required to have an annual turnover of at least £500,000 and have between five and 500 members of staff. To submit an entry, click here.
