CATEGORIES

Business of the Year Award

Sponsored by Jaguar Cars Ltd

RECOGNISED as THE local award for exceptional performance in business, this premier sector is open to companies with an annual turnover in excess of pounds 2 million.

Entrants need to demonstrate outstanding success during their most recent full financial year and can be judged on criteria ranging from exceptional growth and increased trading profit through to development of services and products or new production techniques.

Small Business of the Year Award

Sponsored by the Coventry Telegraph

THE category created especially for the thousands of small businesses which go to make up such a large part of our commercial community.

Criteria for entry include turnover not exceeding pounds 2 million in their most recent full financial year. Entrants have to demonstrate solid success - be it growth in profit or turnover, exploitation of new products, production techniques, services or markets.

Young Businessperson of the Year Award

Sponsored by Coventry & Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce

ENTRANTS must be aged 40 or under on January 1, 2008.

They must be employed or self-employed in this county and directly responsible for the success of their company, candidates will be able to demonstrate a significant role in improving profits, introducing new products and or services, or opening up new markets.

Determination to seek out and exploit new opportunities and help drive the company forward will almost certainly be a key factor in the winner's approach to business.

Contribution to the Community Award

Sponsored by Coventry City Council

THE award honouring those enterprises following the tradition of 'putting something back' into the local community.

A whole range of activities are eligible. Contenders may, for example, have been funding charitable activities, providing recreational facilities, or assisting young people's enterprise start-ups. The dominant theme is that entrants should show they have worked in partnership with local communities to produce real benefits and in ways likely to encourage others to aspire to corporate good citizenship.

International Trade Award

Sponsored by UK Trade and Investment and the European Regional Development Fund

THIS award will be made for outstanding achievement in international trade. Entries are welcome from new or established exporters and from companies involved in overseas strategic alliances or manufacturing partnerships, and also from providers of financial services, training, consultancy, professional services etc.

The growth in international trade in relation to the size of the company, and its overall success, will be of importance as will sales and marketing initiatives which have opened up new overseas opportunities.

Communications Technology in Business Award

Sponsored by BT Local Business Coventry & Warwickshire

THIS award will go to the company which is judged to have most successfully introduced new technology to improve communications with external or internal customers and/or suppliers and, where appropriate, is utilising e-commerce in its trading activities.

The judges will be particularly interested in benefits which the technology has brought to the business, both in terms of opening up new services/markets or the improvement of existing ones.

The Coventry Telegraph Business Awards are presented in association with the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce.
