Project Description


In this category, this award will recognise a business or organisation from any sector that has generated high growth during the last 3 years.

The Judges are seeking evidence of strong economic growth and positive achievements to date. A company or organisation that is racing ahead in their chosen field; a business that has grown in turnover and number of staff; and one that is making a positive contribution to the community. Business growth isn’t only about financial gains. Having or developing a strong leadership team, the right people, the right processes, and efficient ways to manage data are all important in creating a strong sustainable operation which is ultimately a driver for growth and profitability.

“Knowsley Safari is a perfect backdrop to what is Knowsley’s most prestigious and highly anticipated business event in the city region calendar.

The reputation of the awards grows each year as does the prestige associated with winning.  With 850 guests in attendance last year the shortlisted companies gained the recognition they deserved in front of a high calibre business audience.

The success experienced here in Knowsley is a powerful endorsement to why companies should enter and attend.”
