The Derbyshire Times business awards are one of Chesterfield’s highest profile awards and winning one of our awards will say a lot about the quality of your organisation and the strength of your team. Our awards attract a wide range of entries from across all sectors from both small and larger organisations. But the winners all have one thing in common – they are truly excellent at what they do and have proved this by winning a Derbyshire Times Award.

We want to help you raise the profile of your organisation and enhance its reputation by promoting the great work you are doing while at the same time providing you with a platform to celebrate your success.

Winning this award has been like a pat on the back for all the effort and hard work we have put in so far. Whilst travelling in Australia we saw the growing trend in the home-coffee experience using machines and pods. As I had just taken retirement from the police force, we had some capital to invest and since then the business has grown beyond our initial dreams, taking on the giants of the industry and succeeding.

We genuinely didn’t think we had a chance in last year’s awards but with the help of awards expert Lucinda White, we were successful in winning 2 of the 3 categories we were shortlisted for.

Winning these awards has certainly helped us raise our profile and increase our local sales which and we feel supported and boosted by the local businesses in Derbyshire.

It was a great accolade, and a huge surprise, to win last year’s Derbyshire Times ‘People Development Award’.

Winning the award has meant so much to the business and our teams; our Talk Staff family are the reason we entered in the first place as it’s a great platform to recognise their achievements. We put our success down to them, continually committing to their own development, supported and partnered by the business!

The winning announcement drove really positive engagement with our team and it was great to also receive such positive comments from our clients and other businesses; there is a thriving, community buzz around the awards and we’d recommend any ambitious businesses to enter!
