Businesses are being invited to a launch event in Herefordshire to learn more about how winning one of the UK’s most prestigious awards can benefit their companies.
The Queen’s Awards Committee Members invite you to St Michael’s Hospice, Bartestree on Wednesday May 8 to hear from the High Sheriff of Herefordshire, Major Patrick Darling and two 2019 Queen’s Awards winners to find out more about the application process for the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.
The event is free to attend and will start at 5pm with the presenters sharing their experiences with you, from their submission to receiving the Award and the positive impact it has had on their companies.
This is a fantastic opportunity for businesses to learn about the benefits of taking part in the Awards. With entries judged solely on merit, there is a very wide variety of enterprises which can enter and win, with companies varying in size from large international companies to small businesses with just a couple of employees.
Previous winners have said that the award had brought added commercial value to their business and delivered new business opportunities.
