Virtual1 today announced it has entered the final stages as ‘National Public Champion’ in this year’s European Business Awards, sponsored by RSM International, as the public vote opens for the first time.
The company, already named as one of the National Champions in the internally judged part of the competition, has submitted a video of its company online, giving a powerful insight into the story of their business and its successes. It will now compete against all other country National Champions for the public vote. The company with the most votes will be named ‘National Public Champion’ for the UK on 3rd March 2015.
Virtual1, CEO, Tom O’Hagan commented on the awards: “It’s a privilege for Virtual1 to represent the UK at these European awards. Britain is bursting with entrepreneurial businesses and the technology and telecoms sector is at the forefront of this boom. We hope to count on the support of our partners, peers and friends in getting as many online votes as possible.”
Adrian Tripp, CEO of the European Business Awards said: “The public vote is a very important part of the Awards as it gives these entrepreneurial companies another way of showcasing their achievements to a wider audience across Europe. It was a huge success last year, with over 93,000 votes cast.”
The video entries from all National Champions representing 33 countries across Europe will be reviewed and scored by the European Business Awards’ panel of judges and on 10th February 2015, the Chairman of Judges will announce the 100 Ruban d’Honneur recipients. The overall European winners of the ten European Business Awards categories will be announced at the same time as the European Public Champion at the Gala Event in May.
