V4B Awards: Is your business a potential award winner?

If your industry is experiencing a traditional Christmas lull in business, then we encourage you to use the quiet holiday season to put together a compelling application for the inaugural V4B Awards.

The V4B Awards will be a great way to generate PR  and also an opportunity to focus on your business, enabling you to start 2018 with renewed enthusiasm and direction. You may want to examine:

  • What are the businesses strengths?
  • Do you have a plan to grow, how will your leadership help to achieve this?
  • How do you attract and retain the best talent?
  • How are employees motivated?
  • What is the impact of the business on the wider community?
