INSURANCE giant AXA is calling on businesses across the district to enter the Midlands & East of England AXA Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award.

The regional winner will win a day's support from an AXA business consultant and the chance to go forward to the National Business Awards final in London in November which Gordon Brown has called the 'business Oscars', the company says.

The AXA Small to Medium Sized Business of the Year Award will recognise businesses for their entrepreneurship and innovation and will seek to highlight the importance of management excellence in maintaining a successful business today and continuing to grow it in the future.

If the regional winner is successful in the national grand final they will win a place on the AXA SME Masterclass that takes place at a chateau in France. Over the three-day course delegates will have their management and business skills finely tuned. A place on the course would normally cost £10,000.
