To the question ‘What is the most prestigious award for businesses in the UK’ – there is only one answer. While it is true that each and every award has its own merits, there is one that trumps all others. Quite simply, The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are the most prestigious accolades for business and enterprise in the UK – perhaps, even in the world. Euromonitor’s proud Founder, Robert Senior and Executive Chairman, Trevor Fenwick are pictured above as one of the proud winners of the Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2014.
Not to be confused with The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise Promotion, which honours individuals, The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise are a mark of outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of:
• International Trade
• Sustainable Development
The awards are undoubtedly competitive – around 1000 companies enter each year – but the number of winners is not fixed and varies from year to year: 209 in 2012, 152 in 2013 and 162 in 2014. Following what has been a promising few months for UK plc, it seems likely that we can expect the total number of awards to rise again in 2015.
The closing date for entries for the 2015 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise is the last working day of September 2014.
