Yesterday marked HM The Queen's 90th birthday and a was a very special day for businesses who have won a Queen's Award for Enterprise in 2016.
In this post we’re updating you on our team and what’s next for the Queen’s Awards.
We are all feeling slightly dazed in the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, but we seem to have survived another year!
Sean took time out of the office last week to meet one of our colleagues from UKTI, John Rimmer who very kindly offered to share a little advice on completing a Queen’s Awards entry form in the International Trade category.
With both the International Trade and Innovation judging panel meetings under our belt, we look forward to the final panel meeting for the Sustainable Development category next week.
Today we have Bonnie Dean contributing a guest blog about our Innovation category.
Today's blog comes from one of our judges, Will Tyler who is Chief Executive of Octink.
We invited Lesley Batchelor, Director General of the Institute of Export and one of our judges to share what she looks for in a winning entry.
Today’s guest blog comes from David Irwin, a previous Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion (QAEP) winner and now a member of the assessment committee for this Award.
Our guest blog today is from Dr Neil Bentley, CBI Deputy Director-General and a Prime Minister's Committee representative.
