Greater Manchester Chamber Backs Oldham’s Business Awards

Posted by Sharyn Lewis, Oldham Local Manager

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce will once again be supporting the ‘One Oldham Business Awards’, which take place on Monday 22nd March at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Oldham.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural awards ceremony, the number of categories has now been expanded. This year’s ceremony will now include the brand new Environmental Award, which will recognise the company or individual who has shown the greatest awareness of environmental issues. As per last year, the ceremony will also include the categories of Business Man/Woman of the Year, Young Entrepreneur and Retailer of the Year, to name but a few.

Nominations will be accepted from any business based within the Oldham region. Companies need to nominate themselves, then three finalists will be selected from each category and the winner presented with a crystal trophy and bespoke prize at the awards evening. Last year, organisers received almost 80 nominations and the finalists were treated to a five-course meal and cabaret entertainment.

Sharyn Lewis, Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce’s Local Manager for the Oldham area, said:
“The ‘One Oldham Business Awards’ is a great platform on which to raise awareness of the work that takes place within the region. Recognition is given to companies who have excelled in their field, and business leaders are provided with the opportunity to learn about other high-achieving and innovative companies in the area. The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce fully supports events which highlight the successes of local businesses, and encourages originality and rewarding models of best practice.”

The Awards are supported by the Oldham Evening Chronicle and are run in conjunction with Oldham Council, Natwest Business Banking and a number of other Oldham-based organisations.
