BUSINESS EXCELLENCE AWARDS OPEN


Entries are now open for the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards 2021 in November, an event that it is hoped will bring the county’s business community together again after the difficulties of lockdowns and social distancing. The Northamptonshire


Business Excellence Awards 2020, organised by All Things Business magazine, moved online for its glittering awards night in February. Beamed directly to finalists’
