There is then 1 final ‘tiebreaker’ question to each of the candidates:
“In your opinion why do you think you should win this award?”
The category of ‘Business of the Year’ is a very large category and incorporates a very wide range of companies that have been trading for over 2 years and have less than 25 full time employees, all at varying stages of their business life.
