Cherwell District Council is lead sponsor for the Cherwell Business Awards 2019, which are being launched on Tuesday, 20 November at Norbar Torque Tools in Banbury.

Running from 8:30am to 10:0am, the event aims to encourage networking, celebrate innovation and encourage entries to the prestigious awards, which are now in their eighth year.

Cllr Lynn Pratt, Cherwell's lead member for estates and the economy, said: “Cherwell is full of innovative start-ups, outstanding charitable organisations and businesses which are excelling at helping people learn on the job.

“Organisations from all these categories and more are invited to apply for the awards. For growing businesses, the exposure that comes with being a winner could be just the thing to take your enterprise to the next level.

“With some excellent speakers lined up and the chance to learn from those who’ve won in previous years, it’s set to be a really useful event for people who are looking to apply.”

The organisers, Cherwell Business Awards Ltd, are emphasising that the event will be a chance for prospective entrants to meet past winners and discover more about how entering the awards could benefit them.

The launch event is free to attend but must be booked in advance via Eventbrite.
