I am looking forward to going to the Harlow and District Business Awards tonight. The business awards became a fixture of the events calendar in the early 2000’s but for a variety of reasons sadly fizzled out.
Tonight sees them relaunched and from what I can see there is considerable interest in them, and a considerable number of very successful businesses up for a variety of awards.
I will be awarding the “Best New Business” award, which the Council has sponsored, very fittingly as Harlow Council is committed to promoting business, something we insisted in changing in the corporate plan when we took control of the council.
Despite the chance I wont be drinking tonight, as I am using it as a chance to catch up with as many people as possible and get as much business done myself, oh and it wouldn’t do my diet any good!!
