Is your business one of the best in its field? Do you want independent recognition for your success? If so, you should apply for The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise today.
The most prestigious and coveted awards for UK businesses are bestowed by Her Majesty The Queen in three categories: Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.
Entry to the Awards is free and open to all UK based companies employing a minimum of two full time people or equivalent.
Winning an Award means that you are judged to be outstanding in your field. The benefits can be many: from excellent press and publicity opportunities to improved staff morale; from increased sales to recognition in the UK and globally that you are amongst the best in your field. Winners will receive a commemorative Grant of Appointment certificate and a crystal bowl, and can display the Awards emblem for five years. All winners are invited to a reception with Her Majesty the Queen at Buckingham Palace.
The entry process is meticulous and rigorous. All entries are assessed by an independent team and unsuccessful entrants get feedback on their entry.
There is also an award for individuals – The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion – for which people are free to nominate anyone they believe is worthy of recognition for promoting enterprise and entrepreneurial skills and attitudes in others.
Linda Stephens, Secretary of The Queen’s Awards office says, “Winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise is the ultimate business accolade. It shows that you are a leader in your area and it can boost your sales. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion is a great honour and recognises the hard work done by people who encourage others into business. The assessment is rigorous, as you would expect. If you need any help, visit our website or call our helpline.”
Karl McCartney, the Member of Parliament for Lincoln, said, “I’m supporting The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion – the UK’s most prestigious award for individuals in enterprise promotion. The Award recognises people who have gone that extra mile to work with others who need help setting out in business, like local communities, young people or students. There are just 10 awards given out each year and usually one special Lifetime Achievement Award.
“I am very pleased that earlier this year Rakon UK Ltd at Sadler Road in Lincoln, which designs and manufactures electronic components for the telecommunications industry, won a Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion. I would certainly encourage firms in Lincoln to enter the 2013 awards to try to repeat Rakon’s success.”
The closing date for the 2013 awards is 28th September 2012. To enter or to nominate, or for more information, visitwww.queensawards.org.uk. The Queen’s Awards Office can also provide assistance on 020 7215 6880, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
