Pre-Launch Success

Despite the cancellation 2 weeks prior to the awards due to snow the pre-launch was a success and well attended. Chris Stott, Head of Business Engagement for Keighley College kicked off the proceedings with a few words about how they work with local businesses. Councillor Khadim Hussain then followed with a roundup of his experience with the awards in previous years and the affect it has had on the local community. We then heard from Helena Gerwitz from Feature Radiators, last years Business of the Year. Helena told us how winning the top award has promoted their business.

Steven Burles and Howard Martin Joint Chairs of the Keighley Business Awards 2016 then followed with all the details on submitting an entry, judging and sponsorship.

Launch Event Rescheduled

With regret the Steering Committee for the Keighley Business Awards 2016 have decided to cancel today’s Launch Event to be held at Leeds City College Keighley Campus at 3pm.

Due to the weather we feel attendees may struggle to make it to the venue. As the steering committee we want the Launch Event to be well attended and as good as it possibly can be.

The Launch Event has been rescheduled for Friday 18th March 2016 at the same time and location. We’re very sorry for any inconvenience but hope you understand our reasons for rescheduling.

We look forward to seeing you in 2 weeks time.
