The Hunts Post Huntingdonshire Business Awards 2019: Are you a family-run business built on family values?

This year, the 22nd annual Hunts Post Business Awards 2019 will take place at the Burgess Hall, in St Ives, on Friday 1 November and will be hosted by voice of Strictly Come Dancing and the National Lottery draws, Alan Dedicoat.

As always, we anticipate an exciting evening full of glitz, glamour and great achievements.

This year, in a change to proceedings, we are sponsoring the Family Business of the Year Award, which recognises businesses where the family’s involvement has spanned at least two generations.

Have you integrated your family values into your business and used them as a ‘competitive’ advantage?

Are you successfully planning for succession?

Does your strategy for the future keep your family at the helm?

Are you enjoying controlled and sustainable growth?

If these things ring true for you, then this year’s business awards could be your time to shine.

Entries are now open for this category, as well as a whole host of others including ‘Employer of the Year’, ‘New Business of the Year’ and the ‘Innovation Award’, to name but a few.

Partner Toni Hunter, who will reprise her role on the panel of judges for this year’s awards, commented: “After a number of years sponsoring the Business Development category, we are excited to be taking on something a bit different for 2019.

We work with many successful family-run businesses in our capacity as chartered accountants and business advisers, and we are thrilled that the Hunts Post Business Awards are providing this type of organisation with a platform for recognition.

The calibre of entrants, no matter the category, is always remarkable, which makes my role as a judge extremely difficult.”

The closing date for all categories is Monday 2nd September 2019 at 5pm. You can download your entry packs here, or you can enter online here.
