Finalists for The Growth Business of the Year revealed

<?xml encoding=”utf-8″ ??>

It’s not just a matter of numbers that the judges are looking for when interpreting ‘growth’.

It’s been a hotly contested category of the Business Champion Awards 2023 and it’s been amazing to see the wealth of talent from teams across the country who have steered their businesses to immense growth. If you’re obsessed with numbers, spreadsheets and bottom lines and you’ve seen a tangible rise in these coinciding with an expansion to your product offering or service then this award is for you.

Growth can be interpreted in many different ways; from bottom lines raising, to the growth of the product or service offering to meet demand, or innovation into new verticals, growth of the team and company culture and growth of the leadership team to sustain the rise.

Here are the finalists for the Growth Business of the Year, I’m looking forward to meeting them all at the finale in March.
