On Thursday 1 October 2020, after a very difficult few months, the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce held its virtual Grand Reveal Event. Originally supposed to take place in June, the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards (IHA) were forced to postpone due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The awards ceremony will now be taking place on 10 June 2021.
Over 150 delegates – made up of sponsors, finalists and other stakeholders – came together for the virtual event on 1 October to hear the big announcement the Chamber had promised to reveal.
It was announced that we are going to be the official sponsor of a new category in the IHAs: the Hertfordshire Heroes Award.
The Hertfordshire Heroes is a new award created this year specifically to showcase how Hertfordshire businesses and individuals have gone above and beyond for the community during the pandemic.
The Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce is a privately run membership organisation that can open doors for local businesses and organisations by helping them to grow their profile and connect with other businesses locally, nationally and globally through a range of membership benefits and networking opportunities. As the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC) Accredited Chamber of Commerce for Hertfordshire, members can benefit from association with 52 other UK chambers and a network of 41 chambers globally.
We are delighted at the opportunity to sponsor the Hertfordshire Heroes Award category. Carol Massay, our CEO, said: “This year, as we all know, has had its challenging moments for all businesses. To recognise individuals and businesses who have put themselves out to support others in the community deserves great recognition. EasyBuild UK has had to adapt as a business to support the customers we provide services too, so I know first hand what the challenges are.”
