The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) has announced the list of finalists for this year’s FSB Scotland ‘Celebrating Small Business Awards’.
Among those shortlisted for a Business and Product Innovation Award are Glencoe Activities, based in the Ballachulish area.
Finalists are chosen because they are exceptional, not just in the Highlands and Islands but in Scotland as a whole, and as the FSB Awards grow from strength to strength and the number of entries increases, so it is becoming ever harder for businesses to stand out from the crowd.
FSB Highlands and Islands area leader Hamish Fraser from Skye said: ‘As Highlands and Islands visitors’ tastes change and evolve, so businesses must think outside the box to come up with new and interesting ideas of keeping themselves ahead of the game.
‘It’s a real pleasure to see Glencoe Activities taking a lead and being shortlisted for a Business and Product Innovation Award.
‘I wish them well and look forward to celebrating the massive contribution that all of our small businesses make to Scotland’s wellbeing at the finals in March.’
The Awards Lunch, on 19 March 19 at the Waldorf Astoria Edinburgh – previously The Caledonian – will see more than 200 businesses from across Scotland gather to celebrate small businesses, self-employed workers and the huge contribution they all make to the Scottish economy and our communities.
Winners of Scottish Awards – all bar the Community Award, which is for Scotland only – go forward to the UK final in London in May.
