Richardsons: Bucks Business Awards sponsor

The Buckinghamshire Business Awards 2024 are open for entries, with the closing date for submissions on May 20th.

We are speaking to each of our brilliant Business Awards Sponsors to hear why they are involved with the awards - and what their message is to any business thinking of entering (which you can do right here!).

Richardsons - sponsors of the Growth Business of the Year Award

Richardsons Chartered Accountants is a local firm established for over 30 years, offering tax and accounting services for businesses and individuals.

What do the Buckinghamshire Business Awards mean to Richardsons?

"It is great to be involved in judging the Growth Business of the Year Award for the fifth consecutive year.

"We are lucky enough to gain insights into what makes these fantastic businesses evolve, adapt and grow – there is always something we learn from the process.

"And being involved for the longer term has also meant we have grown our relationships with the wider Buckinghamshire business community, including our fellow sponsors and supporters of the awards."

What impressed and inspired you most about last year’s winners, Saepio Solutions, and the runners-up, StaffHost Digital and Zenopa?

"All the businesses had remarkable growth, which posed a real challenge for us when selecting a winner!

"During our visits to all three companies, we were not only impressed by their existing and future growth plans, but also their exceptional staff care and engagement."

You are also a Partner member of Buckinghamshire Business First. Does this, and your awards sponsorship, make you feel more closely connected to the local business community?

"Being sponsors of the Growth Business of the Year Award gives us a unique opportunity to connect with the remarkable people behind the companies that have achieved outstanding growth. Meeting these individuals allows us to gain insights, celebrate their accomplishments, and forge valuable partnerships.

"We have seen how awards bring companies together and help new connections to form. We attended the Growth and Innovation Summit & Business Expo and it was great to see so many Buckinghamshire businesses there, including previous finalists from our Growth Business category, Victoria Brocklesby from Origin and Nick Moss from Saepio, who were on the panel."

What would you say to anyone who is thinking of entering the Growth Business of the Year Award?

"If you’re thinking about applying, please don’t delay!

"Participating in business awards not only celebrates your achievements but also propels your business forward. Winning the Growth Business of the Year Award provides instant recognition and credibility. It signals to clients, partners, and investors that your business stands out in its field.

"We look forward to visiting you and your flourishing business at judging time in the summer."
