Businesses looking to raise their profile through award wins can benefit from a free award writing workshop to be delivered by PR experts Osborn Communications.
The Award Writing Workshop, which is a Black Country Chamber of Commerce event, will offer companies practical guidance on how they can make their entries stand out from the crowd.
The workshop will take place from 9.30am to 11am on 4 July at the City of Wolverhampton College’s Wellington Road campus in Bilston and can be attended either in person or virtually.
The event has been launched to help businesses considering entering the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Business Awards, which will welcome more than 500 attendees on Thursday 9 November 2023 at Wolverhampton Racecourse.
Osborn communications specialist Rachel Adams commented: “Awards writing can be a daunting process, but being recognised as a finalist or a winner can be very rewarding.
“It can help raise awareness of your brand, improve your reputation, provide new networking opportunities and motivate your team.
“The key is to make your award entry stand out and catch the judges’ attention. It is always important to look carefully at the judging criteria and ensure you have plenty of facts, figures and testimonials to back up what you are saying.”
Osborn Communications, which won the Black Country Chamber of Commerce start-up of the year award in 2021, produces successful digital, PR and marketing work for a range of leading West Midlands brands and offers training services for companies. Director Chris Leggett will be among the speakers.
Since September 2021 the agency’s award entry writing support has helped businesses achieve 21 award wins and 100 finalist placings as part of strategies to gain recognition for their achievements.
The team has extensive award writing experience and knowledge of staging internal and external awards events. They have also assessed entries and selected winners as judges.
Visit the Black Country Chamber of Commerce website for details on how to sign up to the workshop. It is open to both Chamber members and non-members. Please note that bookings for the event will close at 3pm on 2 July.
