The 2018 Maidenhead and Windsor Business Awards were launched at a recent lunch attended by local businesses, sponsors and a number of last year’s winners and finalists. It was revealed that Stephen Shanly, 4th fastest man to row the Atlantic solo, would be this year's compère.
Nicola Rogers, Commercial Manager of Baylis Media and member of the Maidenhead and Windsor Business Awards Steering Committee, launched the Awards by announcing that the compère at this year’s Awards ceremony will be entrepreneur and 4th fastest man to row the Atlantic solo, Stephen Shanly. Nicola urged local businesses to either nominate some of the great businesses that they know – and to enter themselves in up to three of the fifteen categories – all free of charge.
Dave Dyson, CEO of Three UK, winner of last year’s “Large Business” Award then gave an inspiring presentation on how Three UK has embedded a positive, well-balanced workplace culture throughout the organisation. Dave didn’t feel that this approach was the preserve of large multinational organisations as many of the steps taken by Three UK could successfully be rolled out by smaller organisations.
DRG Chartered Accountants is delighted once again to sponsor the Fast Growing Business Award and would encourage local businesses, of all sizes, to enter up to three of this year's fifteen categories. Winning an Award has many benefits. Last year’s finalists emphasised the value of the Award to help their teams feel recognised and how it can help with recruitment. The very process of entering can be useful – it requires a business to take time out and reflect on how far they might have come in a short while, the role of their teams and the impact of their strategy across their business.
