The Halifax Courier Business Awards 2017

We are seeking nominations for our annual Courier Business Awards, which have become a major event among the business community.
Now in its 11th year, the awards ceremony is practically guaranteed to be a sell-out.
This year’s glittering ceremony will held on December 1.
Halifax Courier Editor John Kenealy said the big night would no doubt again deliver stories of enterprise and amazing achievements of inspiring individuals.
The Courier Business Awards provide the opportunity to demonstrate to a wider audience what a great place Calderdale is to work and do business.
“The diverse range of business is superb, new businesses have cropped up in recent years, they have succeeded against the odds and are flying high,”  said Mr Kenealy. 
“Established companies dating back decades have successfully showed resilience during a particularly difficult economic period to weather the storm and hopefully can look forward to many more successful years.
“I would urge everyone to ensure we get as many nominations as possible - there will be a category to suit and I look forward to meeting the short listed nominees on the big night in December.”
There are ten categories covering different types of businesses and individuals.
Every year great success stories are greeted with praise by the audience at what is a fantastic networking evening.
So don’t put off nominating your choice(s) and make sure the business or person 
you think is worthy has a chance to be recognised for helping make Calderdale the great place it is.
Nominations for this year are now closed.
