Why have you chosen to be a sponsor of the All Star Small Business Awards 2019? 

We were privileged to attend the first All Star Small Business Awards last year and tapping into the spirit of theses awards, we too are firm believers in celebrating business success. The Silk Bow Group work with many smaller businesses and often refer them to our network of contacts and clients. Supporting a ‘Business Awards’ like this is a great way to help and champion other businesses and business owners, and also an engaging way to meet and get to know other like-minded business professionals.

In your view what makes a small business worthy of the award for “Business of the Year”?

It can be a challenge for businesses to differentiate and stand out from their competition. In our view a business worthy of the title ‘Business of the Year’ should:

  • Have a good business plan
  • Demonstrate a different and effective way of working
  • Look after their staff well
  • Be transparent
  • Have an innovative product or service
  • Possess good business morals
  • Have someone or something that makes them stand out from the crowd
  • Love what they do

What value do you believe small businesses bring to the Hampshire Business Community? 

Small businesses are the lifeblood of any town, city or county.  They provide many great services and products (working passionately), and really care about the way they do business. Personally we love to use and work with local suppliers! In our experience we have found that smaller, independent businesses truly value each and every customer, which in turn enhances their overall level of service and customer experience. It’s just one of the things that set them apart from many larger and more corporate businesses.

We’re are excited to add another fantastic business to our Sponsor Team and we would like to offer our gratitude to The Silk Bow Group for supporting the All Star Small Business Awards and the Hampshire Small Business Community.    

The Silk Bow Group will take an impartial view in co-judging the Influential Business Owner Award entries and will join us on stage in September to announce the category award winner.
