Having launched its 16th Annual Business Awards recently, the British Chamber of Commerce is inviting all Singapore registered companies to enter the Awards. The Chamber has been running the Annual Business Awards for over a decade, making 2015 the 16th Business Awards initiative it will be organising. 
This year’s Awards has a special significance for us as we join Singapore in celebrating its 50 years of independence. Singapore’s vibrant business community has been instrumental in the nation’s economic progress. At the Chamber, we celebrate the quintessence of those who have contributed to the Singapore business landscape through the Annual Business Awards initiative.
When the Awards began, the Chamber wanted to recognise and celebrate outstanding achievements across the various sectors where British businesses were active within the Singapore business community. Over the last 15 years the Annual Business Awards have expanded and evolved, supported and encouraged by sponsors, participants and winners. Today, the Awards focus on achievements that are Singapore-centric and are open to any Singapore registered company.
The Awards are supported by key organisations such as Singapore’s Economic Development Board, SPRING, Singapore Business Federation, UK Trade & Investment, European Chamber of Commerce, BBC and the Straits Times.
The British Chamber has strived to make this event a meaningful and successful competition. We can proudly say that we are the only international chamber in Singapore to organise an initiative that recognises outstanding achievements across all platforms and industry sectors in as many as eight different categories.
The energy and enthusiasm of successful businesses, prominent academics, business leaders and thought leaders coming together over the years is reward in itself for us, and we hope that you will take part to celebrate your business and your achievements. Take the chance to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the Best of Businesses in Singapore! Hear from the winners of last year’s event.

Community Star Winner: Andrew Colyer, Barclays

“BritCham has a growing voice in the Singaporean Business Community; it is particularly strong at encouraging both international and local companies to think differently about diversity and inclusion. As Diversity Sponsor, Barclays is well placed to be at the centre of these conversations. The Awards are a great platform for highlighting excellence in community investment, sustainability and diversity.”

Leadership in Diversity Winner: Rosie Danyluk, BP

“As a strong supporter of the British Chamber of Commerce for many years, we recognise its important role of connecting and collaborating across business in Singapore and beyond. By gaining external recognition for our efforts via the BritCham Business Awards, we will empower and motivate our leaders and staff to do more, and continue to be energised and passionate about creating a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone can give their best.”

Leadership in Customer Focus Winner: Sean Boyle, The British Club

“The BritCham Annual Business Awards have no doubt grown into the huge success it is today, offering a highly credible and professional platform for businesses to showcase their success stories. We at the British Club are proud to stand among the best of the industry in this year’s Leadership in Customer Focus category. It serves as a motivation to continue to grow and create more magic moments every year.”

Leadership in Innovation & Productivity Winner: Steve Price, IECO

“The Annual Business Awards have grown in significance and prestige over the past 14 years. IECO participates in the awards to showcase our achievements and to benchmark ourselves against other leading businesses in Singapore. We also take the opportunity to celebrate the successes of our employees, giving them an opportunity to reflect on their achievements and to encourage them to reach even higher.”

Leadership in Sustainability Winner: Jay Mariyappan, Sindicatum

“Over the years, the BritCham Annual Business Awards have acknowledged some of the best and most prominent businesses in Singapore. As a company passionate about being the best-in-class and a leader in our field, we are keen to promote our achievements and associate ourselves with this long-running and prestigious awards network. We also feel that the linkage between Sindicatum and BritCham would enhance the visibility of the issue of sustainability and renewable energy in the region, where greater awareness and action would be welcome."

Success in Business Winner: Margaret Manning, Reading Room

“The BritCham Annual Business Awards provide companies with a huge amount of exposure and accolade. Our win last year in the category of Inspirational Creativity has helped us raise awareness of both our company and our creative strength as a business. We have seen first-hand a rapid increase in exposure among our peers, new business, and in-house staff motivation. The reason for nomination is simple: for any company in Singapore, there is no better exposure available.” 

Small Business Rising Star Winner: Jonathan O’Byrne, Collective Works

“The BritCham Annual Business Awards have become a respected, industry-validated awards programme. The British Chamber is known for the high calibre of its member companies, which, in turn, reflects on the award ceremony. That is what motivated us to apply.” 

Young Professional of the Year Winner: Miles Gooseman, The Fry Group

“The BritCham Annual Business Awards are widely recognised and have a great reputation for showcasing outstanding achievements, and this is what motivated me to enter. Being a finalist offers a great way to raise my profile in the Singapore business community, and to further develop The Fry Group’s business in the region.”
