Do you deserve a Queen's Award for Enterprise?

Shropshire Chamber of Commerce is holding a lunchtime networking event on Friday to outline the benefits of bidding for a Queen’s Award for Enterprise.

They are awarded to businesses for outstanding achievement in International Trade, Innovation, Sustainable Development and Promoting Opportunity (Social Mobility). 

Any business with more than two people can qualify - former Shropshire-based winners include Thermserve, Protolabs and i2r Packaging.

Entries are judged entirely on merit, therefore there is a variety of enterprises entering and winning each year, with firms varying in size.

On Friday June 12, from 12.30pm to 1.30pm, the Lord-Lieutenant of Shropshire, Mrs. Anna turner, Marches LEP chair Mandy Thorn and chief executive Gill Hamer, plus Richard Sheehan, chief executive of Shropshire Chamber of Commerce, will ‘virtually’ launch the latest Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Shropshire.

Richard Sheehan said: “With a need for businesses to raise their profile more than ever this is a great platform to gain local, regional and national recognition.

“We must never underestimate the high regard that Queens Awards winners are held in, nor the fantastic boost to staff confidence and morale that being recognised as an exemplar in your field can bring.

“Shropshire has a thriving business community bursting with innovation and success. let’s get together to share the stories far and wide through this amazing opportunity."
