The Brentwood Business Awards 2021
We are very pleased to announce that the Brentwood Business Awards are back for 2021 and will be held on Friday 12 November, at Orsett Hall(*).
The Brentwood Business Awards are open to organisations of all sizes and sectors as long as they are based in – or doing business in – the Borough of Brentwood.
These awards not only provide the opportunity to win the overall Best Business Award which is judged by our headline sponsor Pinney Talfourd LLP from the shortlisted finalists, but will say a lot about your organisation and the category you decide to enter (maximum 2 categories). Through this process and by taking the time to focus on your strengths and recognising the achievements obtained during this challenging year, will no doubt send a positive message to your existing clientele and provide the opportunity to grow and attract new business.
The success of our events in 2018 and 2019 highlighted a wide range of entries from across all sectors from Sole Traders, Charities and innovative SME’s, to larger limited companies and LLPs. But they all have one thing in common – they are truly excellent at what they do and have proven this by taking the time to apply, becoming finalists and enabling them the opportunity to win the desired accolade.
We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate your success. This is why for this year we have also introduced the Community Hero Award as we felt it was important to acknowledge the great work individuals and/or businesses have achieved over this unprecedented year.
We have also compiled some top tips for submitting your entry – read how you can maximise your award submissions here Remember, you have to be in it, to win it, so please apply now!
* Our intention is to hold an Awards Dinner similar to that in 2019, however this will be led by guidance and restrictions from the Government at the time.
