Business Development Award

Dynamism and agility are often the attributes that can help a business stay one step ahead, and the Business Development Award seeks out those companies which are able to innovate in order to boost their competitiveness.
Sponsored by Howes Percival the Business Development Award provides the opportunity for businesses which have combined innovation and commercial acumen to grow significantly to be recognised for their achievements.



This popular category provides the opportunity for businesses which have grown significantly to receive recognition for their achievements.
The winner will have demonstrated how it has grown its overall business through innovation and planned development, supported by strategic investment. This may, for example, have been achieved by the implementation of a new strategy, the launch of a new product or service or through a successful merger or acquisition.
The judges will be looking at how the development has been reflected in increased turnover and employment and, most importantly, in enhanced profitability. They will also focus on sustainability and the long term goals and strategy that have been put in place to maintain financial security and success.

"The EDP Business Awards are a real celebration of all that's great about our businesses here in Norfolk. Each of our categories is a recognition of the strength and depth of our local economy."Ben WoodsEDP Business Editor
