Forging stronger business connections and encouraging new talent are among the reasons why three new sponsors have signed-up to the Kingston Business Excellence Awards.
White Label is co-ordinating the awards, from finding judges to organising the gala dinner, from the PR to the sponsorship.
We are delighted to have secured the following local companies to sponsor awards:
- Cattaneo Commercial - Best SME Business category
- Direct Colour Ltd - Best Food & Hospitality category
- New Devi Tandoori- Best Young Entrepreneur category
Direct Colour director Mark Attwater said: "We are proud to support The Kingston Business Excellence Awards. And proud to print and publish within The Royal Borough of Kingston. Whilst it is important to have a national reach; most importantly we are a local business. Stronger relationships can be founded and developed essentially because you are a part of a community.
"Walk, cycle or drive over to someone, shake hands, speak to them face-to-face, deliver something yourself, discuss an issue or snag, or just wishing them a pleasant weekend or evening; creates the environment for a stronger caring business relationship to flourish."
New Devi Tandoori proprietor Subhendu Dey added: "New Devi Tandoori understands its corporate and social responsibilities and always encourages talent whenever the opportunity arises. That is why New Devi Tandoori is associating with the Kingston Business Excellence Awards. Furthermore, New Devi Tandoori believes that to invest in people is to encourage talent, specifically within the community. Therefore, sponsoring the Young Entrepreneur award is no exception."
The Awards, led by Kingston Chamber of Commerce in conjunction with the Royal Borough of Kingston and Kingstonfirst, culminate in a gala dinner at the Holiday Inn, Kingston South on October 15, hosted by broadcaster and columnist Julia Hartley-Brewer.
The awards' headline sponsor is NatWest and others include John Lewis, Kingston University, Kingston College, John Lewis, Premier Cars, Time & Leisure Media Group, TWM Solicitors, Veolia Environmental Services and Warren House.
