Businesses across the Marches have been urged to shout about just how great they are by entering a regional awards scheme.
Now it is urging businesses from across Herefordshire, Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin to make sure the Marches punches above its weight in the awards.
Alex Turner, joint managing director, said there were 13 award categories, covering the full range of business activity, including the Ambassador honour for the individual who has made an outstanding contribution either in leading their business or in representing the region or their sector on a bigger stage.
He said: "2019 has been a challenging year in many sectors but the uncertainty has seen the best businesses respond with resilience and imagination – investing, diversifying and disrupting to create success.
"At the same time, businesses in the region have been leading the way on issues including sustainability and workplace wellbeing, creating exciting opportunities while building businesses that people are proud to work for."
Awards up for grabs include best newcomer, innovation, international trade, investment, contributing to the community, professional services, best property business, family business, small business (up to 50 employees), medium business (51 to 250 employees), large business (251+ employees) and fast growth business.
The Business Masters winners will be revealed at TheBusinessDesk.com’s annual dinner at Botanical Gardens, Birmingham, on April 2, 2020.
