Whilst time is tight to get your nominations in I would urge everyone to look at the Queen’s Awards. These really are the equivalent of an Oscar in our industry and recognise those companies and individuals who have had a major impact.
What I like about these awards are that you have to prove what you have done as a company or individual which goes beyond the day to day expectations. Introduced in 2004 these annual awards close for nominations on 31 October and so you do not have much time to get those entries in.
All too often we fail to celebrate individuals and companies who have made a real difference and so spread the word and if it is too late for this year make sure that you put a note in the diary for next year!
Just follow the link to www.queensawards.org.uk to learn more. There seems to be a real lack of representation from the East of England in this years awards so let us try and rectify that for next year. We have a lot to be proud of.
