Hadlow College Sponsors Kent Excellence in Business Awards

Posted on 10th January 2014 in General

For the second successive year, Hadlow College is hunting for the best land-based business in Kent as part of the Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA).

Jointly sponsoring the category with Brachers LLP, it is hoped that the success of last year’s awards – which saw Chapel Down vineyards crowned with the title – will encourage more land-based businesses to enter and gain some of the benefits which all entrants receive.

Now in their sixth year, the KEiBAs – which are jointly organised by the Kent Messenger Group and Kent County Council - have been described as one of the country’s premier business awards.  Within the 15 different categories, some of which are sector specific whilst others are more general and cover certain key competencies, entrants will need to demonstrate a solid understanding of their business and be able to demonstrate what it is that makes them stand out.  Their success will be celebrated with approximately 600 business people at the Gala Dinner in June 2014.

Commenting upon the College’s involvement in the awards, Mark Lumsdon-Taylor stated “With over 80% of Kent being classified as rural, we see this the land-based business category as pivotal in showcasing the talent within the industry and its importance to the county’s economic development.   Hadlow is a proud supporter of this sector and thrilled to be able to formally recognise the dedication and success of all applicants.”

To find out more about the awards, and to download your entry form, please visit the KEiBA website.  All applications will need to be submitted by 7th March 2014.
