Nominations open for British Business Awards 2023

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News , Creative News, Outdoor News

British Business Awards 2023Nominations have opened for the 2023 British Business Awards.

Celebrating its sixth year, and organised by smallbusiness.co.uk, these prestigious awards recognise, honour, and celebrate the outstanding and innovative achievements of small and medium-sized British businesses across all industries.

In the wake of the pandemic, British small businesses have faced new and unprecedented challenges. That’s why, the organisers say, this year’s awards are all about celebrating the resilience, creativity, and success of these businesses, and putting a spotlight on how small businesses have overcome adversity and thrived.

Categories include Retail Business of the Year, with judges looking for evidence of organizational growth and development over the last two years, a diverse product or service offering, testimonials, and challenges faced and overcome by the business. This category is open to all retail businesses, including brick-and-mortar stores, online retailers, and those that offer a combination of both. The focus is on businesses that have demonstrated resilience, creativity, and innovation in navigating the challenges of the retail industry.

Judges are also searching for individuals, organisations, and initiatives that have truly gone above and beyond, significantly impacting businesses, employees, and entire industries, whether that’s been through rapid growth, undergone a remarkable transformation, or simply making a difference in your community.

The closing date to apply is 26 May 2023 and you can find out more here: https://britishsmallbusinessawards.co.uk/
