The closing date to enter this year’s Sedgemoor Business Excellent Awards is 7th February 2020.
Winner of the Innovative Business Award in 2019
“This is me, Becky Wright, I’m on stage with my partner and Lord David Triesman receiving my award for Innovation in Business. Just prior to this I was sitting in the audience thinking, I never win …. we are always too small. When I was called out as the winner… I remember looking across in total shock, I then punched the air and made my way to the stage like walking on air.
We are very small as a company and often find ourselves competing against much larger Employee Assistance Programmes or CSR focussed companies. We have been a finalist before but never a winner. I so want to encourage you to enter, we are very small SME but like me, you add value to your community and with this award we got the opportunity to stand out and be seen.
Being recognised was such a buzz my only advice to you is take lots of time with your application, get others to read it and see if they understand what you’re saying, provide as much evidence as you can and tell your story. You are all unique and it’s this which makes you stand out. The Bridgwater Chamber staff were a great help to me and support and it was so lovely to see their encouragement throughout”
