24 June 2014
Now in its fifth year, the 2014 Leatherhead & District Business Awards scheme run by Prowse & Co Ltd in conjunction with the Leatherhead & District Chamber of Commerce has been officially declared ‘Open for Business’. The scheme gives recognition to the Leatherhead and district business community and demonstrates the contribution it makes to the local and wider economy.
Sponsored by ExxonMobil, The Gatwick Diamond Initiative, Surrey Connects, Unilever, the Leatherhead Advertiser, Barclays, Riverbridge House Business Centre, Mole Valley District Council and Surrey Director magazine, the Business Awards will highlight and promote the achievements of companies and business leaders in the area and celebrate their success.
Commenting on their success, Oliver Hall of Liquid Productions winner of ‘the Best Business’ Award in 2013 said: “Winning the award has been great for Liquid Productions. It has helped by endorsing us when meeting prospective clients, has given momentum to our ‘work local’ focus and has helped when recruiting. We make sure that all new prospects know that we won the award- it’s a worthy accolade for us!’'
Joanne Rogers, Managing Director at Prowse & Co Ltd said: “We are fortunate to have many leading and diverse businesses within our area, which has inspired us to increase the categories to ten this year. The Awards highlight and recognise the Leatherhead district’s entrepreneurial stars and corporate leaders – people and companies who go the extra mile to accomplish extraordinary success or inspire others to achieve their potential. “
