And the Award goes to…

Have you considered entering an award for your business? Awards can be a great way to celebrate the hard work you have put in over the year as well as shout about your strengths and successes.

If you are lucky enough to be shortlisted it can be a fantastic morale booster for the team, as well a great way to generate media coverage for your business. Depending on the award and the competition, even being shortlisted can be of interest to the local media – and great content for blog posts, social media and press releases.
