The Be Inspired Business Awards (The BIBA’s) is Lancashire’s largest, longest running and most rigorous business awards programme.
As previous winner of New Business of the Year in 2012 and finalist of Creative Business of the Year 2012, we felt this recognition of achievement really helped establish and cement us as a quality new Lancashire business.
In 2015 we feel the business is at a stage where the opportunity should be taken to apply for some further awards with a hope of highlighting the progress that the business has made and where we are now placed in the market. It was decided to apply for three categories that reflect our core strengths as a company.
We began the process by attending the BIBA’s bootcamp, held at Lancaster University and following this we undertook the lengthy process of completing written applications for the following categories;
Small Business of the Year
Best Use of IT in a Business
Best Use of Creativity in a Business.
Following this initial application we were very happy to be shortlisted in all categories applied for and invited to attend formal interviews with the Judging Panels.
In June 2015 we were delighted to hear we had been selected as Finalists in all three categories! We feel very proud to have achieved this recognition, reinforcing that Bi3 are a strong, established, developing business with a varied and progressive skillset.
Having now been visited by the Judging Panels at our premises and interviews conducted with the whole Bi3 Team as part of the ‘BIBA’s On Tour’ process we now await with much excitement and anticipation the 11th of September, when the winners are announced at the world-famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom.
