As we move towards the application deadline for the BIBAs 2016, on Friday, April 8, we have asked our judges to provide their top tips to applicants.
Each week we will bring you a top tip from each of our judges, here Peter Thompson, International Sales Manager at BIBAs 2015 Exporter of the Year, Evans Vanodine, gives his advice to those entering the awards.
Peter is a judge on the panel which will select the winner of the Exporter of the Year category at the BIBAs 2016.
“The main piece of advice I would offer any business entering the BIBAs is take it seriously and ensure you are putting everything in to your application,” he said.
“The entry form you submit is your only opportunity to make a first impression on the judges, who will be seeing applications from your competitors across Lancashire.
“If you put your all in to your application, you will get the maximum out of it – I can guarantee every business and individual, it is worth the effort.”
