What we were asked to do
Devise the Kingston Business Excellence Awards on behalf of Kingston Chamber of Commerce, Kingstonfirst and the Royal Borough of Kingston. It was the first time the borough's three leading business organisations had come together to promote awards of this type.
How we did it
In line with the brief to deliver a financially sustainable programme, White Label used the Make Business Happen community interest company to develop and manage the awards, raising sponsorship to make the event self-funding.
Using a skilled, knowledgeable and talented team, with more than 20 years' worth of awards experience, we held a launch event at Warren House to raise interest within the local business community and supported this with a marketing and publicity programme throughout the entry period.
We also organised a judging day, using successful business-people to ensure a rigorous and fair selection process before hosting a glittering gala dinner and awards ceremony at Holiday Inn Kingston South.
Following the success of the 2013 and 2014 awards we are now in the third year of the programme in 2015.
