The annual awards ceremony celebrates Knowsley’s outstanding business community and recognises and rewards those businesses and individuals who are driving forward Knowsley’s success.

Judged by members of the Knowsley Place Board, the awards provide all those shortlisted with an opportunity to showcase their achievements to independent experts and raise the profile of their organisation.

Edward Perry, chair of the Knowsley Place Board said: “I look forward to the Knowsley Business Awards as every year they grow in popularity and the quality of nominations are always superb. It never ceases to amaze me how much we have to celebrate.”

“I am delighted to be involved in the awards and that once again I, along with my fellow Place Board members, will be part of the judging panel. It’s a privilege to see the wonderful range of success stories that are submitted.”

Cllr Graham Morgan, leader of Knowsley Council said: “Our business community and its people have so much energy and determination they really are the driving force behind Knowsley’s growth journey. I would like to encourage all organisations submit a nomination and to join us and celebrate the outstanding talent we have here in Knowsley.”
