You can also see the thoughts of judges from the Business Leader Awards 2018 here.
Andrew Pfeil, Stirling Dynamics, business development director, said: “It’s all about branding, it helps us not only locally but nationally and from a worldwide perspective as well. Awards like this mean we can say to customers ‘we’ve done this’ and ‘we’ve done that’. It shows we’ve achieved something and have been recognised for our capabilities.
“The value of these awards is that the more people who enter, the more value and weight, just entering has. The creditability of entering, let alone, winning, will add value to your brand and mean something for its customers.”
Simon Brown, founder and managing director, ForrestBrown, said: “We’ve entered the Business Leader awards for the past few years as they’re a fantastic way of raising our profile amongst local businesses.
“Last year I was lucky enough to win entrepreneur of the year. Winning isn’t just satisfying for me personally, it is also a boost to the whole team and a validation of all of our efforts. An award win really gets the office buzzing with energy!”
