Companies have just two weeks to submit an entry into this year’s Barking and Dagenham Business Awards and get the chance to meet BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing favourite Anton du Beke.
The entertainer, who has featured on the show for nearly a decade and hosted several high-profile programmes such as Loose Women and Who Wants To Be A Millionaire among others, will host the glitzy awards night in July.
A series of free workshops have been helping businesses boost their chances of winning, with final two sessions, entitled “How to Win a Business Award” taking place at the Barking Enterprise Centre on Thursday April 24 and May 1.
Entries are open to any businesses across the borough provided they have an operational presence within Barking and Dagenham but have to be submitted by Wednesday May 7.
The awards now in their seventh year of running, provide an opportunity for companies to see their hard work recognised and rewarded.
Living The Dream, who help aspiring Barking and Dagenham athletes achieve their Commonwealth or Olympic goals, has been selected as the charity of the night.
