british-chamberThe British Chambers of Commerce have released the list of businesses that have been shortlisted for their National Chamber Awards. Purpose Media have been selected to represent the Nottingham, Derby & Leicestershire Chamber of Commerce in the Small Business of the Year award category.

In total, 80 businesses have been selected in nine business categories from hundreds of entries from Chambers of Commerce located right across the UK.

The Small Business of the Year category was open to organisations employing up to 75 full time members of staff. The award will go to the company that can demonstrate high levels of growth and a robust plan for sustainable financial performance.

In selecting their winner, we have been told that the judges will be looking at:

·         What differentiates the company’s products/services from their competitors.

·         Managerial and financial performance.

·         Potential for growth.

·         Evidence of the businesses commitment to staff.

We will find out if we have won at the national finals which are taking place on Thursday 27th November at the Pavilion at the Tower of London. One national winner will be awarded the accolade of Business of the Year and will walk away with a £10,000 cash prize!
