Chesterfield Champions announced as finalists for Business Awards
Three Chesterfield Champion organisations were announced as finalists in the East Midlands Chamber Business Awards at the Chambers President’s Summer Reception last week.
Chesterfield Champion Chesterfield College was announced as a finalist in the Education and Business Partnership Award and The Accountancy Recruitment Group and Pinewood Properties were both announced as finalists in the Excellence in Customer Service category.
The Chamber’s awards are the only ones locally to offer winners a chance to compete in regional and national heats of the British Chambers of Commerce Awards.
Introducing the announcements, Chamber Chief Executive and Destination Chesterfield board member, Scott Knowles said:-
“It always gives me great pleasure to celebrate business success. It’s something that we should be shouting about from the rooftops.
“To make sure we are ready to meet all the challenges and seize the opportunities ahead, organisations must stay sharp and focused. One way of doing that is by competing for business awards such as ours – the only regional awards judged by your peers and offering the possibility of taking your success on to the national stage of the British Chambers of Commerce Business Awards later in the year.
“Competing for business awards forces organisations to look closely at what they do, how they do it and how they can sharpen their focus by setting aside those parts of their daily activities that do not contribute to their longer-term aspirations or essential operations.”
Winners of specific awards and the overall Business of the Year award winner for each county will automatically go through to the regional heats of the British Chambers of Commerce awards and could go on to represent the region at the BCC national awards.
