ENTHUSIASTIC employees and creative companies will be honoured at this year’s Solihull BID Excellence Awards.
From talented young apprentices to businesses showing smart management and innovative thinking, the Solihull Business District (BID) awards celebrate all that’s great about the town centre.
The red-carpet event, which last year was attended by more than 390 guests, will be held in the town centre on November 23.
Entries will be invited for each of the eight categories from the beginning of June.
This year’s Excellence Awards are being sponsored by BNP Paribas, Touchwood, IM Properties, Solihull College & University, and the Solihull Observer.
Last year’s winners include Megan Troth of Xoserve, who was named Best Apprentice 2016 after being described as ‘the best, hands-down’, by her supervisor.
Anna Hobbs of Wallace Robinson & Morgan was crowned Best Trainee.
Karen Chapman of St Alphege School picked up the award for Best Customer Service. The award for Outstanding Innovation & Enterprise went to TP3 Global for their pioneering work in the pharmaceuticals industry and Holiday Inn Solihull picked up the Best Hospitality & Leisure award.
