Each year the Derby Telegraph Business Awards brings together the stand-out members of the regional business community for a night of celebration and recognition as their achievements over the last 12 months are brought to light.
The event will return on Wednesday 5 June at The Roundhouse at Derby College and each year a whole host of high-profile sponsors come on board to support the awards. This year is no exception, with the event’s venue, Derby College, announced as Headline Sponsors.
As well as being one of Derby’s stand-out event venues, the College supports a variety of students with courses and apprenticeships in a range of different subjects.
April Hayhurst is the Derby College Group Deputy Principal of Employer and Economic Affairs and she explained why they chose to come on board as Headline Sponsors.
“Derby College is an integral part of the local and regional business community and we believe that it is important to recognise businesses who are making a positive impact on the economic health of the city, county, region and beyond.
“We should also applaud those who are going above and beyond in terms of entrepreneurial innovation, growth, job creation and workforce development. Awards such as these raise the profile of the city and county as a centre of excellence that will potentially attract inward investment from like-minded or supply chain businesses.”
The Derby Telegraph Business Awards bring a range of benefits to the region as April highlighted.
“The Derby Telegraph Business Awards are a vital part of the business landscape. They raise the profile of the city and county as a centre of excellence that will potentially attract inward investment from like-minded or supply chain businesses.
“Individual businesses will also benefit greatly from their increased profile – potentially attracting new customers, securing the future of their workforce and hopefully leading to further growth and job creation.”
With 16 categories up for grabs at the awards, there is a chance for the success of all companies to be acknowledged. This is something that April believes is incredibly important.
“Businesses who are making a positive impact on the economic health of the city, county, region and beyond deserve recognition. We should always applaud those who are going above and beyond in terms of entrepreneurial innovation, growth, job creation and workforce development.”
