The Lord-Lieutenant encourages Kent businesses to enter The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise, which are highly prestigious awards for outstanding achievement by UK businesses in the categories of Innovation, International Trade and Sustainable Development.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion is awarded to individuals.
The awards are made annually by HM The Queen, and are only given for the highest levels of excellence demonstrated in each category. They are judged to a demanding level and winners receive a number of benefits and worldwide recognition.
Previous corporate winners in Kent have come from a diverse selection of business sectors and have included large and small businesses. Recipients of the individual award have been from varied social and professional backgrounds.
Entrants should not be deterred by the competitive nature of the scheme – Nothing ventured; nothing gained.
The Queen’s Award for Enterprise Promotion (QAEP) celebrates and recognises the activities of individuals who have played an outstanding and significant role in promoting enterprise skills and attitudes in others in the UK.
If you know someone who has actively encouraged and/or excelled in ‘Enterprise Promotion’, you can nominate them for a QAEP to publically recognise their efforts and achievements.
Award winners receive a certificate signed by The Queen and a crystal Rose Bowl, presented by the Lord-Lieutenant on behalf of Her Majesty after the citation has been read to the workforce by a Deputy Lieutenant.
