Gatwick Diamond Initiative sponsors Leatherhead & District Business Awards
20 July 2015
Members of the Leatherhead & District business community recently gathered to launch the annual Leatherhead & District Business Awards at an event held at ExxonMobil’s offices in Leatherhead.
With ten categories, the Awards will highlight and recognise the people and companies who go the extra mile to achieve success and/or inspire others to achieve their potential. The Gatwick Diamond Initiative is sponsoring the Award for Best International Business.
Open to any individual or business/organisation located within Leatherhead, Ashtead, Bookham, Effingham, Mickleham or Fetcham, the Awards are FREE to enter.
The nomination process is simple. You may nominate yourself or your company, or any organisation or individual for any of the award categories. Online entry forms may be downloaded from the Awards website at www.leatherheadawards.com. The entry deadline is Friday 11 September 2015.
A panel of senior executives from the sponsor organisations will judge the awards and finalists may be visited by the Judges. Finalists will be invited to an awards ceremony at St. John’s School, Leatherhead on 30 November 2015 where each winner will be presented with a trophy and certificate in front of an audience of around 90 guests.
Jackie Quinn, President of the Leatherhead & District Chamber of Commerce said: “We are fortunate that Leatherhead and its surrounding villages are home to a diverse range of businesses. These Awards highlight and recognise the people and companies who go the extra mile to achieve success or inspire others to achieve their potential.”
Joanne Rogers, Managing Director of Prowse & Co said: “The awards are an opportunity to celebrate success and highlight outstanding achievements by businesses, both large and small in the Leatherhead area. We originally created the awards to support initiatives that inspire business excellence and encourage interaction between local businesses and we are delighted they have become a keynote annual event.
Commenting on last year’s success, John Barker, Sales Director of Humidity Solutions (winner of both the 'Business of the Year 2014' and the 'Marketing Campaign of the Year 2014' Awards) said: "Winning two Leatherhead and District Business Awards in 2014 was certainly the highlight of the year for Humidity Solutions Ltd. In particular, it was an outstanding reward for our staff in recognition of the hard work they have put into the company since it was formed in 2008.”
