The fifth annual Kingston Business Excellence Awards 2017 kicked off in style with an inspirational breakfast at Chessington World of Adventures, the famous wildlife zoo and theme park.
Organised in partnership with The Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Royal Borough of Kingston and Kingston First, local businesses are invited to register for the 2017 Kingston Business Excellence Awards.
A wonderful opportunity for local businesses to raise their profile and showcase their achievements, The Kingston Business Excellence Awards celebrate the hard work and success of the borough culminating in a glittering Gala Dinner and Awards Ceremony on 12th October at the prestigious Ravens Ait in Kingston.
Kingston’s Deputy Mayor, Councillor Rowena Bass urged all local businesses to enter the 2017 awards, which feature 11 business categories, as well as the overall Kingston Business of the Year. She also thanked all the sponsors who made the awards possible.
“These awards bring together and champion all that’s best of the borough’s businesses by celebrating all your hard work achievements and successes,” said Cllr Bass. “They really help to showcase that Kingston has lots of talent and entrepreneurship and encourage the new starters and fledgling businesses.”
The winners of 2016 Marketing & Social Media category, Emma and Steve Levy of the Figment Agencysaid their company has grown and won more business since picking up their award.
They believe entering had four clear benefits for their firm. Apart from giving them a valuable overview of how they are doing as a company, being shortlisted had the given Figment a lot of free marketing and publicity, a huge morale boost for staff, and crucially, increased credibility.
“It was an absolute honour to win the award for marketing and social media last year,” said Steve. “It’s really helped us to gain gravitas and credibility with prospective clients. So if you are considering entering, I would highly recommend it.”
The deadline for entries is 30th June
