The Creme de la Creme (Best of the Best) Business Awards, in association with The Cheshire Club, will recognise the achievements of small businesses and sponsor Pace Investments and will give a prize pot of £10,000 to the overall business excellence winner.*
Entrants have until this Friday, 9th September, to get their nominations in and can self-nominate or nominate someone else based within a 45-mile radius of Cheshire, so this includes Greater Manchester and North Wales-based businesses.
“There are huge numbers of small businesses doing great things in Cheshire that may not be currently recognised by awards due to their location, scale or even awareness of the benefits that winning an award can bring.“
“I decided it was time to acknowledge businesses and individuals in Cheshire and surrounding areas for all their hard work, to inspire and encourage others and their abilities. Everyone likes a little bit of recognition from time to time, mix in a good night out with like-minded business people and their guests with a prestigious awards ceremony, and you’ve got an unforgettable evening for all!”
Explains Joanna Scott-Aspray, CEO of The Cheshire Club.
“The event is being sponsored by Pace Investments as a supporting sponsor who have offered the amazing prize of a £10,000 cash sum to the overall winner. There is still the opportunity to become a headline sponsor of this exciting event”.
