Businesses from across Lancashire turned up to pick up tips on how to maximise their chances of winning a leading awards.
The Be Inspired Business Awards, the BIBAs, held its annual Boot Camp workshop which saw judges and former winners give them the benefit of their advice.
Helen Broughton, who founded accountants Danbro with her husband, Damian, told those attending how her firm had secured the awards’ Business of the Year prize last September.
The session also heard from judges Norman Tenray, the two-times BIBAs winner, and businessman Tony Raynor, before taking part in a number of exercises aimed at supporting their applications.
The deadline for applying to this year’s BIBAs is Friday, April 8.
