Celebrate your business & Our Region!

Isn't it time there were more North East businesses getting listed? We'll be listing the various business awards here for the businesses in our Region to apply and together we'll get more people aware of the great businesses in the North East.

Why ? Business Profile -  A subject that's close to our heart, helping you make more people aware of your business. Even the fact you got short-listed helps to raise your profile, that's free positive publicity - an advert you didn't have to pay for.

Raising the profile of your company automatically raises the profile of the people that work for you and depend on to get results, and when your staff are happy your customers will be too!

National Honours
 We don't just want to see more great North East Businesses applauded, we want to generate greater interest in and submissions for Honours too.  If you feel the North East in general is underrepresented in both the New Year and the Queens Birthday Honours Lists, well here's your opportunity to do something about it.

It is important that you know the person well enough to be able to explain exactly why you think they should be recognised and who they can ask to provide letters of support for the nomination.  

The good news is nominations can be made at any time, however, it's not quick - consideration  for an award usually can take up to two years; but don't let that put you off, please follow the link to find out more:
