Britain’s Got Small Business Talent – Win A Harrods Hamper and £200 call handling account
2014 was a thrilling year for UK-based SME businesses and the British economy. With 4.8 million SME businesses based in the United Kingdom, employing more than 60 per cent of the workforce and subsiding to almost half of the country’s turnover, it’s acknowledged that the successes of the SME business sector is fundamental to Britain’s recovery from recession.
There is no better place to grow your enterprise than in the United Kingdom
While watching entrepreneur Simon Cowell on Britain’s Got Talent, Reuben Singh, the CEO of alldayPA, realised the talent show failed to recognise talent within the business industry. In particularly, start-ups, SMEs and entrepreneurs.
He said: “alldayPA has seen many businesses grow and expand over the years, we’re honoured to have been a part of their journey to success. Now, it’s time we give back to small businesses around the United Kingdom by recognising talent.”
“As a nation, more must be done to recognise talent within the business industry. Notably, the talent who have chased their dreams, battled through struggles and worked all hours to achieve.”
The Britain’s Got Small Business Talent Award Competition
alldayPA set out to recognise small business talent by virtually awarding SME businesses on Twitter the Britain’s Got Small Business Talent Award. The winner of the BGSBT award will win a Harrods hamper and £200 worth of call handling for their business.
Just like Britain’s Got Talent, the winner will be chosen by public voting. All you have to do is ask your followers to retweet your virtual award. The award with the most received retweets will be crowned Britain’s Got Small Business Talent winner!
How to enter
If you wasn’t awarded a virtual BGSBT award, fear not, you can still enter your SME business by contacting alldayPA with your company’s name, your twitter handle and why you believe you deserve the award.
The winner will be announced Wednesday, 27th June 2015.
