Local business leaders were celebrating being selected as winners in a PR competition at Hogarths Stone Manor recently. As part of their prize, the North Worcestershire based businesses are to be highlighted in the ‘Celebrating North Worcestershire’ 2020 business calendar, and will benefit from a 12 month package of PR support.

Organised by North Worcestershire Economic Development and Regeneration (NWedR) and NWBL (North Worcestershire Business Leaders) the competition is aimed at showcasing the diversity and scale of businesses across the area.

To enter the ‘Celebrating the Natural Environment for Business’ competition, businesses across North Worcestershire were asked to put into 50 words why they think the area is the natural and inspiring environment for their business. 

The winners of the competition are Opening Doors & Venues, Rotary Creative, Danton HR, Fresh Nous, HR Dept Worcestershire, Eureka Financial Solutions, Invoco Telecom, Hogarths Stone Manor, Champion CCTV, Ecl-ips, Advance Events, Citrus Computing, and Strategic Professionals.

All businesses operate in North Worcestershire covering Bromsgrove, Redditch and the Wyre Forest area.  These winning businesses will now be the focus of a photoshoot with professional photographer Terry Livesey.

Jane Doyle, Communications and Engagement Officer for NWedR said:

“This is the second year of the Celebrating North Worcestershire competition. We have again joined with North Worcestershire Business Leaders to organise this competition to highlight what a great place North Worcestershire is to do business. 

The area has lots to offer whether you are a small or large business and whatever sector.  Our organisations along with the North Worcestershire Ambassadors are committed to giving businesses in the area a voice, and we thought this was a creative and visual way to showcase this.”

Melanie Hawkett who founded and runs North Worcestershire Business Leaders said:

“We’re pleased that local businesses again got into the spirit of the competition and shared their ideas of what makes this area special.

During the next 12 months, the winning companies will also be featured in the NWedR monthly newsletter and through our proud media partner Business & Innovation Magazine and showcase on their website.
