The Small Business of the Year Award, sponsored by SABIC UK Petrochemical, will be presented to the small-medium sized company that can best demonstrate a successful approach to developing their sales to the process sector. This category is open to all member company SMEs.
Tell us about your journey. We want to hear how you cracked the process sector? Everything from sector interaction; programme co-operation and collaboration; business growth – in terms of both sales and jobs; product or service development; your demonstration of sheer ambition and commitment to winning business in the process sector.
But don’t leave it there. We’d also love to hear about any other activities your business and staff are involved with. Are you sponsoring an apprentice or supporting a young person into work? Is your business working with the local community or are your employees raising funds for local charities – if so, tell us how?
As well as receiving a trophy to mark the winners’ success at the prestigious NEPIC Annual Awards Dinner, held at Hardwick Hall on the evening of Friday 18 January 2019, the winning organisations will also each receive £2,000 to donate to a local school of their choice to fund a science related project – a great way to raise your company’s profile within your local community and attract future talent to the sector.
To apply, please submit a 750 word article outlining the successful approach that has enabled you to develop sales into the process sector. Examples of evidence would be cluster engagement; interaction with the sector; collaborations with other SMEs; international trade; job creation; sales growth; product and service development; skills support and community relations.
Entries should be submitted electronically, clearly stating your organisation’s name and the category in which you are applying for on the top of the document. Entries should include a completed application form.
All entries are to be submitted by close of business on Friday 21 December 2018.
All entrants will be notified early January as to the success of their application.
