The search has begun to find the brightest young business stars from across Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes

The Next Generation Business Awards recognise inspiring young people whose achievements are making an impressive impact in their chosen field.

Due to the success of the inaugural event in 2019, four new categories have been added to this year’s awards – Charity and Social Enterprise Star of the Year, Customer Service Star of the Year, Entrepreneur Star of the Year and Sales, Marketing and Communications Star of the Year.

These are in addition to the existing categories of Service Industry Star of the Year, Northamptonshire Star of the Year and Milton Keynes Star of the Year.

The awards are run by Next Generation Chamber, which was created by Northamptonshire Chamber of Commerce and its sister Chamber in Milton Keynes to help businesses support and nurture staff who are dedicated to advancing their careers.

“Last year’s Next Generation Business Awards was a fantastic event which celebrated the best young and aspiring talent of Northamptonshire and Milton Keynes. It’s fair to say everyone who attended the awards was blown away by the calibre of the finalists.

“We’re very proud to, once again, be raising the profile of such brilliant young professionals and hope this year’s awards will shine a light on our next generation of business leaders.”

Next Generation Chamber welcomes people from all sectors who want to share experiences, learn from business leaders and work with their peers to develop new skills, knowledge and best practice.

In addition to the awards it also offers young business people the chance to grow and develop through a series of networking events and personal development sessions.

The networking events offer members the opportunity to share knowledge and experiences with their peers and guest speakers in a relaxed and informal environment. The personal development sessions are inspirational and interactive sessions aimed at developing essential business and leadership skills.

Entries for the Next Generation Business Awards must be submitted by Friday 3rd April 2020.
