University to act as judging partner for third year running

The University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) has been named as an official judging partner to the Red Rose Awards for the third consecutive year.

Organised by Lancashire Business View, the annual awards ceremony celebrates the achievements of businesses across Lancashire. Categories for the 2018 awards include Employer of the Year, Customer Service and Innovation.

The deadline for entries is midnight on January 12, before the finalists are announced on January 29.

Four UCLan representatives will then attend interview days at Ewood Park in February ahead of the awards ceremony which will take place on March 8 at the Winter Gardens Blackpool.

Lancashire has a thriving business community and it’s important that we acknowledge success while at the same time encouraging more people to pursue their business dreams.

Dr John Lonsdale, Director of Innovation and Enterprise at UCLan said: “We’re thrilled to be supporting the Red Rose Awards for the third year running. As the official judging partner we get to meet inspiring businesspeople from across Lancashire and hear all about their individual success stories.

“Lancashire has a thriving business community and it’s important that we acknowledge success while at the same time encouraging more people to pursue their business dreams.”

Richard Slater, publisher of Lancashire Business View, said: “We do hope businesses from across the county will grasp this opportunity to shout about the great things they do.

“The Red Rose Awards aim to promote this to the wider business community through Lancashire Business View magazine, LBV online, our social media following and through our many partners and sponsors.”
