Celebrating Being Finalists at the East Midlands Chamber Leicestershire Business Awards 2020
The 2020 annual East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Leicestershire Business Awards were very different this year as each regional ceremony was held virtually. The Leicestershire awards event took place on Thursday 19th November.
Blueprint Interiors was shortlisted in two categories. Although we didn’t manage to bag either award, we were honoured to be finalists in such hotly contested categories:
- The Excellence in Customer Service award recognises organisations that focus on customer service and care and can demonstrate excellence and a commitment to exceeding customer expectations.
- The Small Business of the Year award was open to organisations which employ up to 75 people. The winner had to demonstrate consistent growth backed by strong financial performance with evidence that current activity will grow market share and improve business performance.
We wanted to take the opportunity to congratulate the winners, and thank our clients, partners, family, and friends for all of the support you’ve shown us in what has been a tough year for many.
Scott Knowles, chief executive of East Midlands Chamber said: “Our Business Awards are always a great opportunity to showcase enterprise success in the region, but perhaps this year will be even more special during what has been a hugely difficult time for many businesses. It was great to see that Covid-19 hasn’t stifled innovation, resilience, and a determination to grow and succeed among the region’s business community, with a very high number of applicants.”
As an East Midlands Chamber of Commerce Patron, we also sponsored the Education in Partnership Award and here is a video from our Creative Director Chloe Sproston congratulating the winners, South Charnwood High School.
This award recognises schools, colleges and further education providers that engage effectively with business and have demonstrated partnership working with local businesses and how they help pupils develop crucial employability skills valued by employers.
Commenting our Chairman and Co-Founder Rob Day said, “It’s been a difficult year for everyone and therefore being able to have a Chamber awards at all is cause for celebration. All the more worthy of celebration is the chance to recognise businesses that have contributed to the success of the education sector when, for the most part, schools have been closed. In sponsoring this award, we aim to help recognise education providers that have worked in partnership with businesses to help pupils develop crucial employability skills valued by employers. These partnerships are going to be even more crucial as this generation of learners seek careers.”
