Queen's Award for Enterprise

An online networking event will be held to launch the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise.
The event will take place on June 12 and businesses will be able to find our more about the awards, including how they can apply.
The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are awarded to businesses for outstanding achievement in international trade, innovation, sustainable development and promoting opportunity.
Former winners include Shropshire-based businesses Thermserve, Protolabs and i2r Packaging.
On Friday, the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire, Anna Turner, Mandy Thorn MBE, chair of Marches LEP, Gill Hamer, CEO of Marches LEP, and Richard Sheehan, CEO of Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, will virtually launch the awards.
Ms Thorn said: “As the Queen’s Award is judged solely on merit, it is open to a wide variety of enterprises with winners varying from large international companies to small businesses with just a handful of employees. These honours are a real chance for all our companies to shout about their success.”
Mr Sheehan said: “With a need for businesses to raise their profile more than ever this is a great platform to gain local, regional and national recognition.
“We must never underestimate the high regard that winners are held in, nor the fantastic boost to staff confidence and morale that being recognised as an exemplar in your field can bring. Shropshire has a thriving business community bursting with innovation and success. Let’s get together to share the stories far and wide through this amazing opportunity.”
