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 Andrea Mellon, the founder of Lancashire restaurant Duk Pond, gives her advice on what those firms which make the BIBAs initial interviews should consider. Andrea is a judge on the panel which will select the winner of the Leisure Business of the Year category at the BIBAs 2016.
“My advice to anyone looking to enter the BIBAs 2016 would be quite simple, don’t waffle.
“Get to the point in your application and, if you are fortunate enough to make the first interview stage of the process, when you meet the judges for the first time.”
