The Great British Business Heroes

Inspirational new awards

By Donna O’Toole

New to 2022, we want to shine a light on a highly valuable awards initiative: The Great British Business Heroes Awards.

The Great British Business Heroes awards have a desire to recognise and reward those who are making hugely positive differences and contributions to support others to succeed in what is an increasingly worrying economic climate.

The Great British Business Heroes Awards

The initiative will celebrate businesses and individuals who are making life easier for small businesses and entrepreneurs and driving their future growth.

Are you a business hero?

After surviving the devastation that COVID-19 caused, businesses are now facing an energy crisis and a looming recession, making life increasingly difficult for those who work so incredibly hard to keep their business afloat.

What we have seen in this complex time, is businesses and individuals stepping forward to ease the struggle with amazing strategies and support systems; so despite not necessarily being able to resolve all the issues that small businesses and entrepreneurs face – they do their part to make life more comfortable. Are you one of these heroes?

The Great British Business Heroes awards has a range of impressive categories to celebrate businesses that go above and beyond:

  • Accountancy Provider of The Year
  • Legal Support Provider of The Year
  • University of The Year
  • Accelerator and Incubator of The Year
  • Business Banking Provider of The Year
  • Business Growth Initiative of The Year
  • Business Podcast of The Year (In Support of Small Businesses)
  • Business Support Team of The Year
  • Communications Provider of The Year
  • Corporate Venturing of The Year
  • Digital Initiative of The Year
  • Digital Transformation Support of The Year
  • Diversity and Inclusion Initiative of The Year
  • Financial Product Provider of The Year
  • Further Education College of The Year
  • HR Provider of The Year
  • Investment Platform of the Year
  • Investor of The Year
  • Local Authority of The Year
  • Marketing/Creative Provider of The Year
  • Seed VC of The Year
  • Small Business Membership Organisation or Club of The Year
  • Technology Provider of The Year
  • Unsung Hero of The Year
  • Workspace of The Year
  • Young Business Support of The Year
  • Zero Carbon Support of The Year

With 5.5 million small businesses in the UK, making up to 99.9% of the business population in 2021, it is imperative that there is support, and that those providing it get the recognition they deserve.

If you’re a UK business that has done your part to help businesses in need, then this new award is the perfect opportunity to recognise your team and your impact so that you can help more people and keep being a business hero!

The Great British Business Heroes awards are currently open with the closing date for applications set for Friday 18 November and the shortlist announcement set for just over a week later. Judging for the event will happen from December through to February 2023, finishing with the exciting award Finals in March 2023.

If you are interested in getting involved but feel you would like some support to raise your chances of success, we are here to help you. We can take care of your entries from start to finish, working with you to choose the best categories and put together your award-winning story whilst providing expert insights throughout.

Dressing for an Awards Ceremony

By Donna O’Toole

Are you off to an awards ceremony over the next few weeks?
Is it your first time at an awards event?
Are you planning what to wear on the big night?


Fear not… we’re here to ensure you rock up feeling confident on your big night. Follow our helpful tips and you might even steal the show!

TAKING TO THE STAGE
If you get the opportunity to either present or collect an award this is your moment to shine, enjoy every second and don’t be afraid to bring your personality and make that moment work for you!

EVENT TYPE
What you should wear is heavily dictated by the type of event, and all of this information should feature on the invitation. 

DRESS CODE
Some of the most common dress codes you’ll see on an event invitation are listed here – but nowadays we’re pleased to see a lot more freedom, creativity and self expression celebrated even at the most formal ceremonies. It’s also a wonderful time to share your traditional cultural dress codes too, so don’t let an awards invitation or dress code put you off sharing the outfits that are special to you. 

Business: This is often the code for a daytime event with awards presentations, wear what you would feel comfortable wearing to work or to another business event. 

Cocktail: The traditional cocktail wear is dresses just above or below the knee, and suits, but not necessarily jackets and ties.

Formal: Longer length gowns and dresses or a complete suit with a tie.

Black Tie: Black Tie tends to be the most very formal dress code, but either cocktail length or full-length dresses, jumpsuits or complete tuxedos are welcomed.

What to wear to an awards ceremony

ACCESSORIES
Most awards events give you the opportunity to party at the end of the night, so don’t be afraid to take a pair of comfy shoes to dance the night away. A lot of networking and business is also conducted at awards nights, so think about creating a digital business card with a QR code so you can quickly connect and keep in touch. Other than that just have your phone at the ready for some fabulous event selfies and team pictures, these can be hugely valuable to share your success on social and with your team.

INDUSTRY TYPE
Dress code can also vary according to the type of industry that the event is being held for. For example, at media and creative awards nights (such as design awards), there’s often a more relaxed or alternative take on evening wear. It can even be a night to showcase your flair and newest designs. On the other hand, if you are attending an awards night for a corporate company, a more traditional environment may lead to a more traditional dress code. Entrepreneur awards give you a great chance to show off your personal brand through your style choice if that’s your thing, or to stay traditional, whatever feels best for you. 

Ultimately, the most important thing is you can be you and just focus on celebrating with your colleagues on your big night out!
