Richmond Business Awards 2016

The Richmond and Twickenham Times and Richmond Borough Chamber of Commerce are delighted to continue working together to celebrate the absolute best of business in the borough. From the independents to the multinationals and charities privileged to be based in this area, the Richmond Business Awards are a wonderful opportunity to tell everyone about the excellent work you do. The range and quality of the entries we receive are proof of the wealth of entrepreneurial spirit, talent and innovative thinking which exist locally across a wide range of sectors; Richmond is truly rich with business expertise.
To win and be in the top 3 we advise you to enter as many of the categories as you can. Do not worry about how large or small your business/charity is – have a go as you could be celebrating on the evening of Friday 4th November 2016 at the RFU Live Room in the company of local MP’s Dr Tania Mathias and Zac Goldsmith. We ask you to answer as many of the questions as you can under each category – please do not be deterred if you do not have all the answers – you could still be a winner! Also use social media and word of mouth to encourage as many people as you can to vote for you in the People’s Choice Category; a simple first past the post winner raises the People’s Choice Trophy – it is worth a go!

Here’s what Zac Goldsmith said about the Richmond Business Awards:

“The Richmond Business Awards have become a landmark event for our Borough, and bring together the very best of our local entrepreneurs and business. It has been a huge honour and pleasure to be part of the awards year after year, and to see the impact they have had on the community. We are lucky to live and work in a dynamic community, and these awards give us a chance to showcase so much local talent and skill. I want to thank the very special sponsors who make these Awards possible, to the Richmond and Twickenham Times, and above all to our magnificent local Chamber. Please do remember to support our Chamber of Commerce – without our local businesses joining up as members they would not exist.”
– Zac Goldsmith, MP
