LBA Entry Deadline Extended
The deadline for entries to the Leamington Business Awards has been extended until the 9th July, giving everyone extra time to finalise their entries.
The popular awards scheme – which is now in its fifth year – is a great way to showcase all the fantastic work being done by Leamington businesses, charities and young people. The event is made possible thanks to the support of local organisations including headline sponsor, The Box Factory, and organiser, Harrison Beale & Owen (HB&O).
There are ten categories to consider:
- Independent business of the year
- Customer service excellence
- Innovation of the year
- Business and the community
- Not for profit excellence award
- New Business of the Year
- Employer of the year
- Young person of the year
- South Warwickshire achievement
- Outstanding achievement
All the categories are free to enter, and organisations are encouraged to put forward nominations in more than one category where applicable. All entry information will help inform the judge’s choice award of ‘Business of the Year’.
The number of eligible postcodes has been expanded to allow more Leamington businesses to enter, and The South Warwickshire Achievement Award is open to any business or charity in the Warwick and Stratford districts.
The awards will be judged by an experienced panel of local and business experts in late July. The panel comprises business consultant and mentor, David Hanson, Jonathan Smith, founder of the Leamington Business Forum, Roger Scott from Lloyds SME banking, founder and director of Motionhouse, Louise Richards, and CEO and co-founder of the Emerald Group, Sarah Windrum. Shortlisted entrants will be announced at the end of July.
The Leamington Business Awards will culminate in a black-tie awards ceremony at The Assembly on 16th November. As well as showcasing Leamington’s business achievements, the non-profit making event will also raise money for two chosen charities – Springfield Mind and The Ups of Downs.
