I’m delighted to welcome you to the High Sheriff’s Enterprise Awards 2023/24 which have now become an established part of Cheshire’s commercial calendar.

The date for our presentation evening has now been set for 4th April 2024, the venue being the prestigious Churchill House, home of University of Chester’s Business School.

As a former Dean of one of the UKs largest Business Schools much of my career has directly involved working commercially with businesses here and internationally, including as Chairman of Business Information Technology World hosting events in India, Mexico, South Africa Egypt and Ecuador.  Different cultures and customs play their part in business entrepreneurship and success of course and yet the central tenants of success transcend them all  i.e., innovate and deliver great product/service with a passion that outperforms the competition.

I have spent my professional life leading and delivering organisational success in Health, Academe, Law and the Humanitarian sectors and the common denominator for successful leadership is to find talented people to join you, build great teams and together inspire your client base to join that journey.  So much of the High Sheriff Awards for Enterprise for 2023/24 is about recognising Cheshire based organisations on that journey.

So, whether you are a pan-global business, an entrepreneurial startup or anywhere in between, share your story with the experienced judges of these awards.  As High Sheriff I want to celebrate your achievements and profile the success that you are achieving that embodies all that is progressive in Cheshire and the UK.

This year includes some categories that profile more overtly than previously issues around environmental sustainability  and also social media, both of which reflect early 21st century imperatives.  The range of award categories are designed in part to include at least one within which any business can participate.  I do hope that you wish to do so.
