Taking place on Friday 10 March 2017, the inaugural Cumbria Family Business awards will take place at the Castle Green Hotel in Kendal. The event which is sponsored by Enterprise Answers along with Lamont Pridmore Accountants, Armstrong Watson Accountants, Coulson Associates Limited, Family Business United and the Federation of Small Business promises to be a showcase of some of Cumbria’s best family businesses. Hosted by television celebrity chef Dave Myers of The Hairy Bikers fame, the evening will recognise an appreciation of family businesses which play an important role in stimulating the Cumbrian economy, especially in rural areas. Whilst it is recognised that SME’s play a vital role in the local economy, little recognition has been given to family businesses, until of late, of the role they play and the way they can differ. In rural areas this can be through diversification, especially on farms, employing people within remote and spartially populated areas, enhanced customer service skills, succession planning and much more.
At Enterprise Answers we are passionate about supporting Family Businesses and we are proud to be engaging with Coulson Associates Limited, The Good News Girl and Make It Happen to ensure this award ceremony is a success for 2017 and in future years.
