Vote to find Midlands’ favourite family business is open
There are just two weeks left for the public to vote for their favourite of the forty-five businesses that are finalists in the 2017 Midlands Family Business Awards.
The People’s Choice category is decided purely by public vote and the rare opportunity for customers, clients, employees, business contacts and followers to make their views count by voting for their personal favourite family business.
All finalists in each of the ten award categories for 2017 are eligible for and automatically entered into the People’s Choice category.
Voting is completely free of charge and can be made online via the Awards website www.familybusinessawards.co.uk.
Amongst the 2017 Awards finalists entered into the People’s Choice category are Micronclean, Bambino Mio, and Lincoln-based Orderwise, which won the category in 2016.
The roll call of finalists also includes Derbyshire’s NK Motors, shortlisted in three Awards, Ward Recycling, Morley Hayes and Magenta, Leicestershire’s Dalycom and S & J European Haulage, Nottingham’s A1 Flue Systems, Ballards Removals and Wilkins Group.
From the West Midlands are Worcester’s Airband and Stafford-based River Canal Rescue, both finalists in three categories, Corporate Solutions, Open Study College, and Warwickshire HR, coaching and recruitment business Absolute Works.
Once voting has closed at midnight on the 31st October, all votes will be counted to identify the overall Winner and Highly Commended in the category. All Award and category winners will be revealed at the Midlands Family Business Awards’ ceremony and black-tie dinner on Thursday 9th November 2017 at Derby Velodrome.
“All our fantastic finalists are entered into our People’s Choice category, which is sponsored by Streets Chartered Accountants,” explains Charlotte Perkins, MD of The Wilson Organisation, which organises the Awards. “This is the only category decided purely by public vote.
“Our online voting system is now open but closes on the 31st October, and in contrast to the other award categories, this People’s Choice gives the public the opportunity to vote for their favourite family business, but time is running out!”
Now in their eighth year, the Midlands Family Business Awards are backed and run by The Wilson Organisation, and are the UK’s only independent, not for profit awards for family businesses.
