The whole team at Approach Towers is on a high due to amazing results at the Ilkley Business Awards, which took place on Friday 24th February.

We won not one, but two awards and to say we are happy, excited and giddy, is probably the understatement of the century. Judged by a panel of independent experts, the Ilkley Business Awards take place to showcase the entrepreneurial spirit that makes this town shine so brightly.

Our MD, Suzanne Watson, won business personality of the year. Sponsored by LCF Law, this category showcased three really strong local business women, with Jenni Smith of Jenni Smith Ltd and Paula Connor of Real Food Ilkley in the mix – the epitome of girl power!

We also won small business of the year after going head to head with the lovely people at Green Clean Housekeeping – equally deserving nominees. This category was sponsored by Spooner Industries and judging was so tight in the end that there were only two businesses to make the final shortlist… nervewracking!

“Approach PR relocated to Ilkley from central Bradford in 2012 and as a team, we’ve never looked back. Ilkley is an incredible place to do business – it’s a true nerve centre of talent, a perfect environment for nurturing entrepreneurism and a close knit and supportive business centre. This is our 16th year in business and we are absolutely thrilled to win two categories – and for our account executive Rebekha White to be nominated for Employee of the Year – in the Ilkley Business Awards. To be recognised for the work we do and the role we play is not only an honour, but an incredible boost for our own team who truly deserve the recognition for all the added value they bring to this business, to our clients and to our community”, says Suzanne.
