How To Win The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise
By Donna O’Toole
The 2016 Queen results are in and it’s the best year ever for businesses in the UK.
A staggering 254 Queen’s Awards for Enterprise have been won by businesses across the following categories:
- International Trade — 150
- Innovation — 92
- Sustainable Development -7
- Enterprise Promotion (the Queen’s Awards for individuals supporting others in enterprise) — 5
Why so many awards? And how did I achieve the magic 100% success rate?
Well the Queen’s Awards run a rigorous competition, with strict criteria for entry and only the few categories mentioned above, but they don’t cap the amount of winners — so if you have the right profile, the right story and the right evidence, you could win an award!
Winning a Queen’s Award can be a game-changing experience for you. It supports you to grow your business profile, raises your business and all your employees to the dizzy heights of being recognised by Royalty, and positions you as the best in the UK. And what customer, partner or investor would choose a company without a Queen’s Award over a company with a Queen’s Award?
A popular question I am asked is ‘can I win more than one award?’. The answer is most certainly ‘yes’! In 2016 there are many double-winners like Inciner8 who have won across two categories, and even one winner, JCB, who won 3 awards across their group — INCREDIBLE!
The Queen’s Awards are open for entry from May until the 2nd September — which is a shorter entry period than previously. On average (and ideally) it takes at least a month to prepare your entry to a winning standard — and that’s when you know what you are doing!
