Menzies confirmed as category sponsor for this year's Toast of Surrey Business Awards

Menzies confirmed as category sponsor for this year’s Toast of Surrey Business Awards

Local businesses are set for a morale boost in 2018 as the Toast of Surrey Business Awards return.

Held at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, the awards ceremony will be held on June 27 and bring together representatives of the region’s business community with the aim of celebrating success and highlighting Surrey’s most talented businesses.

Hosted by TV comedian Mark Dolan and Olympian Gail Emms MBE, 15 awards will be presented on the night.

Presenting each award will be the category sponsor, who along with the honour of recognising the worthy winners at the ceremony, will also have the tough task of whittling down the many entries to find the three finalists.

One such sponsor is chartered accountants, Menzies. Based in Surrey, Hampshire, London and Cardiff, Menzies offers accounting expertise and commercial thinking to businesses from across a wide range of sectors.

Sponsoring the SME Business of the Year award, partner at the firm, Graham Seddon, explained Menzies’ reasons for getting involved with this category.

He said: “Menzies is proud to sponsor the SME Business of the Year award.

“We support many SME business owners and admire their entrepreneurial spirit.

“They are the lifeblood of the economy and we look forward to celebrating the best that Surrey has to offer, looking at recent growth, development opportunities and the core values they live by.”

The awards are not the only way Menzies supports the business community.

Graham said: “As our focus is our clients, we have shaped our business around the aspirations of the local owner-managed client base.

“We regularly engage with our clients to canvass their views on what they need from their advisors.

“Our most recent survey helped us to shape our advisory focus; offering challenge and strategic insight to our SME clients which was what they wanted from us.”

He added: “To support this, we run regular workshops to keep our clients educated on key issues, we have an active programme of relevant content and we are hosting a full day free client conference this year to help clients plan and navigate key business challenges.”

The outlook for Menzies in the coming year is to focus on its advisory services, working with its clients to understand, document and assist with their personal and business aspirations.

Providing an excellent opportunity to network, the Toast of Surrey Business Awards will welcome guests with a Champagne reception followed by an indulgent three-course meal.
