Queen's Awards for Enterprise 2021

Businesses are invited to apply for a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding achievement in the categories of:

  • Innovation
  • International trade
  • Sustainable development
  • Promoting opportunity through social mobility

The prestigious award - a Grant of Appointment signed by Her Majesty The Queen and a commemorative glass bowl - is presented by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Julie Spence.

Successful applicants will be invited to send 2 representatives to a Royal reception at Buckingham Palace. They will also be entitled to fly The Queen’s Award flag at their main offices and feature the emblem on publicity materials, including their website and stationery.

With the awards valid for 5 years, previous winners have reported benefiting from worldwide recognition, increased commercial activity, greater press coverage and a boost to staff morale. There are also potential opportunities to work with the Government on developing and testing policies and initiatives.

Applications must be submitted by midday on 9 September 2020 and winners can expect to be notified on the Queen’s birthday on 21 April 2021. To enter or find out more, visit the awards website.

One of this year’s winners was Brogan Group, a specialist access contractor to the construction industry with a purpose-designed ‘Supersite’ just outside Gamlingay.

During the period 2016 – 2018, the company experienced a staggering 158% international growth spurt, and by 2018, 37% of Brogan Group sales came from overseas markets.

This success saw the company clinch the coveted Queen’s Award for Enterprise in the International Trade category.

When the awards were announced last month, Brogan Group Director, Wayne Smith, said: “Kudos to our international teams, which have all contributed to both our success and our position as the market leader.”
