  • Entering awards – waste of time or a valuable chance to take stock?
    a fast growing SME So should the act of simply applying for an award actually be considered a valuable strategic exercise Sarah Trethowan operations director at TRAC Services and winner of many an award in Cornwall thinks that that s exactly what it is she says As a business owner it is easy to focus on day to day activities and not take time to sit back and consider what you have already achieved and what you still want to achieve Completing the application process for an award is a great way of carrying out your own critical assessment of your business I ve found on a number of occasions I m so focused on what I still need to do that I ve forgotten what I ve already achieved Writing an application has helped remind me of how far I have come and the lessons I have learnt along the way both of which in turn help when thinking about future plans Whilst it s clear that applying for every award possible is not conducive to a productive workforce applying for one or two categories every year and taking time to fill out the application could enable a company to take stock look at successes and failures over the last 12 months and consider the direction in which the company is going Sarah adds If you aren t shortlisted ask for feedback this can be invaluable maybe more than winning and means the time you spent applying was even more worthwhile So go on put some time in the diary get some good biscuits in and start thinking about where your company has been and where it s going Here are some awards that are currently open for applications Cornwall Sustainability Awards closing date 19th October Cornwall Manufacturers Awards
