Applications open for top Queens Honour

  |  Published: Aug 17th 2017

Businesses across Buckinghamshire are being encouraged to apply for the prestigious Queen's Award for Enterprise.

Globally recognised and hailed as one of the most prestigious a business can win, the Queen’s Award for Enterprise recognises outstanding achievement and contribution in four categories; innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility.

Buckinghamshire County Council Leader Martin Tett said: “We’re proud to be the entrepreneurial heart of Britain, and we have some fantastic go-ahead businesses who I’m certain would more than meet the criteria for the Queen’s Award. This is a great opportunity to give them the national recognition they deserve, and I’d strongly urge all our businesses to consider applying.”

Sir Henry Aubrey-Fletcher, Lord Lieutenant of Buckinghamshire said: “It is always good to celebrate success and this is a wonderful opportunity to do just that. It is a great honour to win the award and is something I believe plenty of businesses in Buckinghamshire have the potential to do.”

Phil Dudderidge, Chairman of Wycombe-based Focusrite and winner of three Queen’s Awards said: “The Queen’s Award is a measure of performance and is a real milestone for a business to say ‘look what we have achieved and look what we will continue to achieve going forward’.”

Successful applicants will be invited to a royal reception at Buckingham Palace, hosted by Her Majesty The Queen, where they will be presented with the award.

Applications for the awards closes at midday on Friday 1 September.
