Chair of Business for Calderdale, Nick Worsnop explained, “Calderdale is known for it’s resilient, innovative and successful businesses and we want to celebrate those. Everyone has been working so hard and under so much pressure, they have had to pivot and react quickly to changes in the market, be that operating in lockdown or coping with decrease in availability of materials. We felt it important to reintroduce the Business Awards in 2022 to give people and businesses recognition for going above and beyond.”

“The appetite to have Business Awards has been very well received and it’s been heart warming to see sponsors eager to show their support. Headline sponsor BCA Leisure were the first to offer their support and category sponsors were quick to follow. I think this is evidence that the business world is ready to acknowledge the achievements again after the difficult period we have all been through.”
