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; Stephen Hart, of Lytham-based IT specialists, Intersys Group, will chair the Best Use of IT and believes the quality of the judges for this year’s awards will ensure a challenging and rewarding process for applicants.
He said: “I have been on both sides of an awards application, as an applicant and a judge, and the selection process for picking BIBAs winners is absolutely superb.
“This year the awards have some fantastic judges and I am lucky to have people like Rob (Scott, Denwa) and Jeremy (Coates, Magma Digital) on my own panel who have been there and done it all before at the BIBAs, they know what it is all about.
“I have no doubt the individuals and businesses which pick up trophies at this year’s awards will be the very best of the best, and I hope all those who enter the BIBAs get something from the process.
“The application process, the interviews and the judges’ visits to applicants’ firms all offer the chance to look critically at your business and see where you can carry on improving.”
