ARE YOU READY TO BECOME AN AWARD-WINNING BUSINESS?

Does your business have great customer service? Have you created an outstanding innovation? Or perhaps you are a fantastic employer. Whatever your strengths, you need to shout about them to make sure potential customers choose you over your competitors. That’s where business awards come in.

WHAT DIFFERENCE CAN WINNING A BUSINESS AWARD MAKE?

Past clients have told us that award success has brought them:

 

 

Greater trust and credibility

A higher profile and enhanced reputation within their company, across their industry and with their customers, both nationally and internationally

An improved ability to secure investment and attract new customers, ultimately increasing their business value

New opportunities to benefit their projects and staff

But you needn’t just take our word for it. The British Quality Foundation and the European Foundation for Quality Management have carried out studies that have put these benefits into cold, hard numbers. Their major finding: award-winning companies outperformed comparison companies by an average of 17% for sales and 36% for share value after just 3 years.

NIGEL BOTTERILL

Entrepreneur's Circle Founder

I'd like to say on behalf of myself and Forces Support that we are delighted with the service provided, you have been exceptional throughout. As we were going through a growth spurt you continued to update the paperwork and right up to the last minute when about 11pm the night before you added in some late developments i sent across.

I've had many bad experiences in the Third sector and only a few good ones, working with you has been the best to date, and not because we won an award as I've always had it in mind to email in and let you know how much I appreciated your attitude and laid back approach to my constant pestering.

I have already recommended AI and will continue to do so, the service was superb.

LASH SARANNA

Managing Director Autobahn International Ltd

Awards Intelligence helped us win eight awards making us the most award winning company in our insurance niche. When we sold the business this had a very positive impact on the attractiveness of the business to potential buyers and I estimate that the wins added around £500,000 to the overall value of the business.

SIMON BURGESS

Insurance entrepreneur

With only two weeks to go before the deadline, we approached Awards Intelligence specifically to help us win a Queen’s Award for Enterprise and with their expert help we achieved our goal. To win the most prestigious business award in the world at the first attempt is no mean feat. What seemed daunting at the start was made very easy by Awards Intelligence, especially with the time scale created by our financial year end. The quality of the service was fast, efficient and professional. I would wholeheartedly recommend Awards Intelligence.
