Directors in firms across Swindon and Wiltshire have less than two weeks to enter the region’s top business awards that recognise boardroom excellence and enterprise.
The South West Institute of Directors (IoD) Awards 2014 are open to anyone working at director level in any type of business or organisation – they do not have to be an IoD member.
The deadline for entries is March 31 and an entry form and more details are available by calling 0117 370 7785, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by going online www.iod.com/connecting/local-network/south-west
The awards celebrate the achievements of the region’s outstanding business people and their contribution to its success. The winners, who will be announced at an awards dinner in the summer, automatically qualify for the UK Director Awards in London in the autumn.
This year the awards are backed by Swindon Business News and its sister titles Bath Business News and Bristol Business News. The websites and e-bulletins will carry a series of articles on the awards, the nominees and will profile the winners.
Categories include SME Director, Large Company Director, Family Business Director , Young Director, Public Sector Director, including charities and not for profit, and Corporate Responsibility.
Last year’s winners included Sarah Trethowan, of Cornwall-based Trac Services, (Director of the Year), Ellen Rodger, of Sungift Energy renewable energy installers, Exeter (Young Director), and Merryhill Envirotec managing director Paul Fox from Dorset (Corporate Responsibility).
