Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards

Online nominations are now officially open for the Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards 2017, set to take place on Thursday 7 September 2017 at Themis at Burnley College’s Princess Way campus.

The glittering occasion has been a highlight in industry calendars since the first Themis Inspire and Achieve Awards ceremony took place in 2013. At the 2015 awards, employers and Apprentices from across the North West celebrated their achievements together, and a fantastic night was had by all.

This year’s event will once more see top employers and Apprentices come together for an evening of celebration, success and industry-leading achievement, with awards presented by prestigious business owners and award-winning former Apprentices.

Nominations for the awards are now open. Employers and Apprentices who have completed their programme can visit the Inspire and Achieve Awards 2017 page to complete a nomination: http://www.burnley.ac.uk/Themis-Awards-Inspire-and-Achieve

Director of Themis at Burnley College Simon Jordan said:

“We are looking forward to another successful event that champions the achievements of leading employers from throughout the North West.

We’re anticipating an influx of outstanding nominations, and we can’t wait to start the nail-bitingly tough process of shortlisting our winners.”

After 34 years working in numerous operational and communications disciplines for three FTSE companies (Yorkshire Electricity; Meggitt and BAE Systems), at over a dozen locations, on 24 November 2016, I became the inaugural editor of Business Lancashire. Business Lancashire is a good news, Lancashire focused, business website and daily newsletter. It is a partnership between The Samuel James Group and the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce. Over the years, I have written hundreds of press releases, features for trade magazines, copy for websites and brochures, edited in-house magazines and newsletters, as well as presenting a radio programme on Chorley FM. This experience has given me the ideal background for editing Business Lancashire.
