* Extended Deadline for entries is 5th June 2015 *

Vonage, a leading provider of communications services that allow small businesses to make telephone calls over the internet, is partnering with the 2015 National Business Awards - supporting their campaign to recognise the UK’s top business enablers.

The Vonage Business Enabler of the Year Award recognises the impact of businesses or ‘enablers’ that offer value beyond support products and services.

Judges will look for evidence of how the organisation’s product or service has enabled clients to increase effectiveness across a range of factors including profitability, operational efficiency, empowering staff and creating and implementing innovation.  Previous winners have ranged from The Chemistry Group to Newton Europe and the Punch Foundation Tenancy.

Simon Burkhardt, Managing Director of Vonage UK Ltd commented, “Enabling efficient, flexible and affordable communication solutions for businesses is at the heart of what Vonage does, so we’re delighted to be sponsoring the award for the second year running. Being able to celebrate the businesses that go the extra mile is vital, not just in recognising their achievements but in helping to support a burgeoning British economy.”

Recognising enterprise excellence, innovation and ethics, the fourteenth annual National Business Awards will celebrate a range of achievements through accolades including the Smith & Williamson Entrepreneur of the Year, the Ashridge Business School Leader of the Year, the Market Gravity Innovation Award, the Inflexion International Growth Business of the Year and the QBE FTSE 100 Business of the Year.

Winning a National Business Award can boost company profile, solidify reputation, and incentivise staff. Martin McCourt, Director of Montagu Private Equity and previous Leader of the Year winner and National Business Awards judge, said: “The National Business Awards is the best platform in the UK for businesses of all shapes and sizes to compare their achievements with those of their contemporaries and to gauge their progress. Winning one of these coveted awards is a big thumbs-up not only from the judges but from the business community as a whole.”

The 2015 Lloyds Bank National Business Awards Gala Dinner will take place at the Grosvenor House Hotel on Park Lane on 10th November. Visit www.nationalbusinessawards.co.uk to view the entry criteria and enter the Vonage Business Enabler of the Year Award.
