BIBAs 2016 – Micro Business of the Year – WINNER!!!

With baited breath Anne and Debbie attended the BIBAs awards ceremony at Blackpool Tower on Friday 16th September….not only did they have a great night meeting and networking with local business people…they WON the award for Micro Business of the Year! Go team CCIB!

To achieve this accolade CCIB had to demonstrate:

  • incredible entrepreneurial spirit,
  • the ability to over come their small size,
  • their ability to plan and operate strategically and
  • how they have overcome the challenges faced by micro businesses.

Winning a BIBA is more than just a trophy. The meticulous approach of the judging process, the BIBAs Winners’ Academy and the national profile of the event means those entrepreneurs that take part in the BIBAs take their minds and business to another level.

The BIBAs, is Lancashire’s largest and longest running business awards programme and is run by the North and Western Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.
