Just days to go until we find out who will be crowned the Black Country’s Business Heroes


There's just a few days to wait, to find out who will be crowned champions in the 12 categories of the Black Country Chamber’s Business Heroes Awards.

The digital awards, headline partnered by the University of Wolverhampton, will take place from 3.45pm to 5.00pm on Friday 13th November.

It promises to be no ordinary digital event.

Lined up in the programme is a whole raft of brilliant entertainment that is guaranteed to make the Awards a unique variety show that will certainly stand out from the crowd.

Although they are completely free to watch, tickets to the Awards must be secured in advance through the website www.bcccawards.co.uk.

The 'Bostin’ Bumper' tickets (containing a drinks and nibbles gift set) have now closed, but the free tickets will be available right up until the morning of the event.

The focus on the Black Country’s ‘heroes’ is something that the Black Country Chamber has been advocating since the start of the pandemic.

Corin Crane, chief executive said, “The awards were a great way to continue our Black Country Heroes’ campaign. They have given us the opportunity to celebrate those Black Country businesses and professionals who have gone that extra mile to help with the Coronavirus crisis.

“All the entries have been outstanding and have really highlighted the endeavours, resilience, adaptability and outstanding contribution made by our business community.

“I am really looking forward to the event on Friday and even though it is online this year, with the line-up of guests and entertainment in the pipeline, it’s definitely going to have the ‘wow’ factor.”

The University of Wolverhampton has been integral to the Awards, as headline sponsor as well as contributing and managing three of the categories: Adaptability & Innovation, Kindness in the Community and Exceptional Employee/Team.

Professor Nazira Karodia, Pro Vice-Chancellor for Regional Engagement said: “We’re pleased to continue supporting the Black Country Chamber of Commerce by being the headline sponsors for these awards.

“These awards are especially important to recognise the extent to which businesses in the region have rallied throughout the pandemic.”

Alongside the University of Wolverhampton, other sponsors and partners include:

MHA MacIntyre Hudson (Large Business Hero of the Year)

Nant Ltd (Small Business Hero of the Year); CK Chartered Accountants (Family Business Hero of the Year)

Forresters Patent and Trademark Attorneys (Start-up Business Hero of the Year)

FMS (Business Hero of the Year)

Walsall College (Outstanding Collaboration & Partnership)
