Businesses from across North Hampshire are being urged to enter the Inspire Business Awards this week to ensure that they don’t miss the opportunity.

It is time to decide which of the 12 categories to enter yourself or your business into and submit your entry by September 10 deadline, this Friday.

It is possible to enter yourself, a colleague, your employer, or if you know a business going places or an entrepreneur reaching new heights why not nominate them?

Simply enter online, and make it clear to the judges why the business should be a winner. Judging takes place over the next few months ahead of the Inspire Business Awards Dinner.

The organising committee are delighted to announce that the prestigious awards dinner will be back this year, and all those selected as finalists receive 2 free tickets to attend the event scheduled for Thursday, November 25 at Hampshire Court Hotel.

The awards are open to those from across the region, including Basingstoke, Fleet, Aldershot, Odiham and Yateley and will ensure leading businesses (both large and small) gain the recognition they deserve for themselves and most importantly for the dedication and commitment of their staff.
