The Business Enabler of the Year Award finalists revealed

This Business Champions Award celebrates businesses who help their customers or clients to increase sales and profitability through a competitive advantage.

Recognising the impact of ‘enablers’ that offer value beyond products, infrastructure and services and instead delivering more customers, clients or revenue for businesses certainly deserves a round of applause.

For a business to be constantly innovating to support its clients, as their unsung heroes in many cases, it doesn’t just need to be ahead of the curve, it needs to set the curve. To achieve this aim the CEO needs to lead and inspire the entire team to be constantly analysing their work and data perceptions coupled with market trends, potential new verticals and competitors as well as innovation from their current and potential new suppliers. These businesses assist with enabling business to make better, more informed decisions about their futures whilst always keeping an eye on the financials to ensure that they go up. Inspirational = yes. Am I looking forward to meeting them at the finale in March? Also yes. So without further ado, the finalists for 2023 are:
