More than 30 local companies have been told that they have been included in the list of businesses that are considered among the most enterprising organisations in Jersey.
The shortlist of finalists for the 2014 Jersey Business Awards for Enterprise has been published, following a rigorous application and judging process.
Candidates could choose to enter any from 10 categories and, in some cases, entered multiple categories depending on the story or stories they have to tell. Ten independent judging panels have analysed each entry and the finalists have been through an exacting selection process. Each one will now have to prepare to meet and present to the judges, which will be their last chance to convince them that their business should be crowned the best in their category. The ultimate winners will be announced at the Jersey Business Awards for Enterprise gala event held at Fort Regent on 13th June.
Andy Cook, Chief Executive of Jersey Business said, “We were delighted with both the number and the high calibre of businesses entering the 2014 Awards. The feedback I have received from the judging panels is that the shortlisting process was made all the more difficult because of the quality of the entrants. We have to congratulate every organisation that has been shortlisted and wish them luck for the next and final phase of the process.”
The Jersey Business Awards for Enterprise will form the pinnacle of a week of events celebrating the diversity and quality of Jersey’s business community. The Awards evening will be hosted by broadcaster Natasha Kaplinsky and tickets for the evening are now on sale, available through Jersey Business’s online portal at www.jerseybusiness.je.
