KC Communications has been shortlisted in the Community and Economy categories of The West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce’s Raising the Bar Awards for their efforts in bringing Huddersfield Business Week to the local community.
Raising the Bar is an initiative from the West & North Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce which helps companies with their social impact goals, with the awards held annually to recognise the hard work of businesses and employees.
KC Communications established Huddersfield Business Week in 2019 in order to promote the diverse range of businesses across Huddersfield at not only a local, but also at a regional level. Over 40 events were submitted by 33 organisations across the week, with early feedback showing 56% of businesses reported new business or leads as a direct result of getting involved in the week.
Kirstie Wilson, Account Manager at KC Communications, said of the shortlisting: “The KC team really came together to make Huddersfield Business Week such a huge success. To have this recognised across the Yorkshire and the Humber region makes all of our hard work worth it.
“We’re extremely excited to already have the wheels in motion to support more Huddersfield businesses with Huddersfield Business Week 2020.”
The winning finalist will be announced at the awards ceremony which will be held at the stunning Leeds Civic Hall on 6th November. BBC Radio Leeds presenter, Andrew Edwards, will host the event.
The shortlisting comes at an exciting time for KC Communications, following a recent Workplace Wellbeing award from the British Chamber for the Yorkshire and Humber region, which sees the firm also in the running for the National Chamber Awards.
Client Services Director, Laura Batchelor has also been shortlisted in the Ambassador of the Year category at The Examiner Business Awards, both of which will be announced at the ceremonies in November.
