GM Chamber launches first ever excellence awards

Date published: 26 June 2021

Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce has launched its first ever Excellence Awards.

The Awards will be a celebration of business achievements and resilience after a turbulent last 18 months and will give businesses, leaders and teams a chance to shine in the spotlight and have their contribution officially recognised and rewarded.

Reet Dhallu, Head of Membership at the Chamber, said: “Everyone agrees that since March 2020 businesses and communities right across Greater Manchester have all been impacted in some way or another by the pandemic.

"We are a great community and a strong economy here in GM but the going has been extremely tough for a lot of people and some businesses.

"Being part of this great community the Chamber wanted to recognise the contribution of organisations across the whole of GM.

“So we decided on setting simple-to-enter Excellence Awards covering five categories that allow the full range of businesses and organisations we have in GM to enter.

“You can enter your own business or even someone else’s if you feel they’ve done something worthy of recognition and reward.

"We want to do something that encourages people to take part as well as raise awareness of the great work and achievements that goes on day after day even in times of real adversity.

"It’s also a way of just saying thank-you to some real superstars that often go unnoticed but who achieve astonishing things.”

The awards are now open and culminate in an evening celebration at the Chamber’s offices at Elliot House on October 28 when the overall winners will be revealed.
