The Hampshire Chamber of Commerce is proud to have been involved with this prestigious business awards since its inauguration.
As a membership owned business support organisation, it was clear that the purpose of Inspire clearly aligned with our values and we are delighted to be able to use our sponsorship to highlight great businesses in North Hampshire, and share the business success stories that take place in the area.
Helping businesses get the recognition they deserve is one of the many great things that we gain as a sponsor of the Inspire Business Awards.
The awards judging process is thorough and fair with the result reflecting not just one individual’s ideas but all the combined thoughts of the event and category sponsors. With so many varied business types to compare and so many strong entries to judge, it is great to work as a team using our business specialisms to help shortlist the best companies.
To help give the judges the best impression of your company, carefully read the criteria for the award you are entering. Use tangible facts and figures to showcase what your business has achieved and note the word count. Shortlisting is based on the details presented in your entry, so take your time to write a full and informative piece.
The most interesting entries are those that are passionate about their business.
It has given us the opportunity to meet new business contacts, get to know award-winning companies and get inspired by all the great organisations based here in North Hampshire!
My favourite part of Inspire is the judging visits. It’s great to get to see the businesses in person and see how they work together to achieve their success. One year we got to visit a business that was at its peak – moving offices to larger premises and securing a celebrity endorsement all in one week! It was great to be part of this, and their excitement was infectious. They were chosen as the winners of the Innovation of the Year award and seeing them on the night collecting the trophy made me very proud to have been part of their amazing year.
