On the 8th May the fifth annual Powys Business Awards will be launched in Brecon. This enterprise has already been acclaimed as one of the most significant means available of helping to promote the quality and diversity of businesses here in Powys.
If you are thinking of entering the 2013 competition the following will give you some encouragement and guidance
The Powys Business Awards are designed to showcase the extent of business talent and the quality of companies and individuals that we have here in the county. Powys is home to so many exciting and diverse businesses, a number are well known, some with market leading credentials, but the majority are unsung heroes that given the opportunity have the skills and ability to rival anyone in their sector. Perhaps you or your business are one of these that just requires the spotlight of exposure to ignite your potential.
In 2009 Mid Wales Manufacturing Group and Powys County Council launched the first Powys Business Awards. The outcome was even beyond the promoters wildest expectations. The competition unearthed a plethora of individuals and companies who once exposed to the glare of market place awareness saw their businesses, reputations and credibility expand beyond their earlier aspirations. Not a bad return for entering a free competition and there was more. The benefits of publicity were not just restricted to the winners for many who reached the finals reported similar improvements in their businesses clearly attributed to their taking part in the awards.
The winner has over time faced it share of challenges and on each occasion has demonstrated its ability to emerge bigger and better and stronger. It has achieved this status due in no small part to its investment in its staff, regarding them as family, as well as employees. A fact well respected in the local community from which most of the staff hail.
In its second, third and fourth years the Powys Business Awards became even bigger and better. More categories were added to the list and the subsequent applications for entry indicated the growing popularity of the awards. Indeed the demand for tickets for the actual Award ceremony, an outstanding event in itself far outstripped availability despite moving to one of the areas largest venues. Once again many individuals and businesses were suitably highlighted to their distinct advantage.
So now we are proud to launch the 2013 Powys Business Awards confident that once again we are going to find and help promote more of the extraordinary and outstanding ability that we have here in abundance in Powys.
