Benefits of Winning The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise

In Spring the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise award winners attended a royal reception at Buckingham Palace – just one of the perks of winning! All 201 of this year’s winning businesses were invited to the special event, making for a fantastic opportunity to network, and share stories with like-minded business leaders.

Every business will have had their own motivation for entering; recognition for an innovative product or service, to differentiate themselves from their competitors, recognition for their exporting success or simply for the prestige.

No matter the motivation for entering, every winner comes away knowing they are one of the best businesses in the UK.

WINNERS PERKS

Not only do you receive an invitation to Buckingham Palace, the Lord Lieutenant of your County will visit your office as a representative of The Queen. The representative will award the company with a Grant of Appointment and commemorative crystal bowl with the winner’s emblem.

This is a really fantastic opportunity to get all of your employees, stakeholders, family and friends for a real celebration and to be apart of the presentation ceremony. You can also invite local journalists and photographers to document the event and get some valuable news coverage and PR, letting everyone know of your success!

For the five years following the win, all winners are granted the use of the official Queen’s Awards for Enterprise winners emblem. The emblem represents prestige, notable achievement and is recognised globally. It’s a fantastic asset to use on your website, email signature, marketing materials and packaging.

Businesses who enter and unfortunately don’t win can still find the experience of entering beneficial. Unsuccessful entrants receive feedback, providing targets to work towards and outlining where they may need to focus to be successful next time around. This feedback isn’t just beneficial for re-entering but is often sound business advice to take forward and improve.
