The BIBAs is about more than just picking up a trophy at a glitzy awards evening, our awards are a business development opportunity for our winners.
In 2014, we launched the BIBAs Academy, a package of workshops run by Lancaster University Management School, which offers our winners access to some of the brightest minds in British business.
Each week our BIBAs newsletter brings you the insight of one of our winners attending the Academy to show what it can bring to your business:
“We have attended and enjoyed almost every masterclass session and they have been enlightening, rewarding and thought-provoking; all in equal measure.
“The sessions are tailored specifically to owners of a business and it isn’t often you get training that benefits someone of that level.
“Moreover, it is a unique privilege to have access to the wisdom of professors who are at the cutting edge of their discipline at Lancaster University’s Management School.
“The peer mentoring and learning has been very valuable; it can be lonely being a business owner.
“Spending time with people in a similar role, experiencing similar trials and tribulations, is very useful.
“Taking time out from the day to day running of the business has allowed our minds to be more creative and given us scope to dream bigger, by cutting through the noise of a normal working day.”
