Recognition is given for the important work of rewarding nationwide SMEs

In only their second year, the Business Champion Awards, from Capital Business Media, have been nominated and are finalists in the Best New Awards Event category at the 2023 Awards Awards.

A gargantuan amount of work goes into the awards programme, which unlike other awards, runs year around, promoting the previous winners and sharing behind the scenes stories and events to help collaborations occur between the finalists.

Awards founder and director Richard Alvin said:

‘It’s so worthwhile. SMEs make up 99% of the businesses in the UK, the revenue they bring in for the country, the staff they employ, the innovation they push forwards, all needs to be heralded and rewarded. We set up the Business Champion Awards to shine a light on all of the entrepreneurs who put their hopes and dreams into the world and work so hard to bring them to life.’

The Business Champion awards saw just under 1000 entries in its second year. Advertisements across the country in national and local press spread the message of positivity for all manner of businesses to enter. Topped off with a collaboration with Sky TV to promote the message of positivity and recognition from every angle. However there was another value felt by the team which added a crucial level to every part of the awards process and grand finale – sustainability.

Richard continued:

‘When we first set out to create a planet-friendly awards programme many people told us that it would be impossible. Yet we knew with all of the eco innovation across the nation right now that there would be a way, however tricky it might be to source, to bring our vision to life and we couldn’t be more proud of our partners and suppliers who shared our ethos and vision and assisted to make it possible.’

Borne out of frustration for the older ways of running awards programmes, and being well versed in the running of awards ceremonies and structures from previous experience, the Business Champion Awards stand out for a variety of forward thinking reasons, all of which benefit business owners applying and the eco-system of our planet:

– Normally finalists have to travel to London to present to judges which costs a large amount of budget and also takes key members of the team away from the business costing the business in other ways

– The Business Champion Awards programme actually runs for the entire year, not just the finale evening. The benefit of this means that the finalists, judges and the sponsors are all featured throughout the year in ongoing press and marketing.

Everyone entering the Business Champion Awards can relax in the knowledge that the awards are sustainable. From being held in the award winning Canary Wharf green zone, to only working with suppliers who have tracked their supply chains and processes to ensure that they are working in a circular fashion, to any surplus food being donated to the homeless after the event.

– It was the vision of Queen Elizabeth II to replenish trees across the country and to honour her wishes, each winner of an award has received trees planted in their rsepective county in her honour.

– Each of the winner trophies have been hand crafted in Wales in a sustainable manner

A celebration of nationwide talent at the Business Champion Awards

On the eve of the grand finale, award winners were announced in a glittering celebration ceremony held in the eco event space: The East Wintergardens. The nation’s favourite broadcaster, Huw Edwards returned to host and preset the award alongside the Business Champion Awards’ judges, all of whom are esteemed and highly respected business owners and entrepreneurs in their own right.

‘I think in this moment in time, the whole team feels the exact same way that all of our own finalists must have felt when they found out the news that they had made it that far in the process. We are all thrilled and completely proud to have got this far. Bringing an awards programme together each year is a gargantuan amount of work across a huge amount of people. I’m so proud of my team to bring the vision to life.’
