Times are tough for businesses in all sectors but some are finding the strength to flourish.
The Express is looking to celebrate the success stories of our city’s companies with our annual business awards.
For a fourth year we will hold a glittering awards ceremony in honour of the area’s finest businesses.
Once again the event will be made possible by our overall sponsors Chadwick Lawrence Solicitors, and we are asking you to nominate your company or staff into one of the categories.
There’s something for everyone, whether it be small start-ups or industrial estate factories, and there are awards that span pure economic success through to helping the environment.
This year we are again asking you to nominate a member of staff for Employee of the Year – the only category voted for by readers.
A judging panel will determine the other winners, and there will also be a Businessperson of the Year award unveiled on the night.
We’ve tried to make the nomination process as easy as possible, so head to this web address: www.wakefieldbusinessawards.co.uk
You can also submit a nomination or ask any questions on email via firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for entries is Monday May 12.
The awards evening will take place at the Cedar Court Hotel on Thursday June 26.
Sponsorship opportunities remain for individual categories: contact John Bottomley on 0113 238 8835, via email at email@example.com or on Twitter @JohnAB72.
