We’re incredibly excited to announce the Enterprise Nation Adviser Awards 2022. The awards celebrate the best and brightest advisers from across the UK and Ireland, whose support and expertise has shaped some of the most successful small businesses.

Never before has the role of an adviser been so important. The last few years have been some of the most challenging in history for small businesses but, thanks to the work done behind the scenes by these amazing individuals, many small businesses have been able to weather the storm.

“Business advisers are the unsung heroes behind our small businesses,” says Enterprise Nation founder Emma Jones CBE. “We want to show this important work in action and spotlight the incredible role advisers play, providing not only the practical information business owners need, but the mental and psychological support, too.”

With that in mind, we're inviting small business owners to nominate advisers across 10 categories. Advisers can also nominate themselves.

The categories this year are:

  1. International Trade

  2. Finance and accounting

  3. Legal

  4. Sustainability

  5. Sales

  6. Social media and PPC

  7. PR and content

  8. Marketing strategy

  9. Coaching and mentoring

  10. People (HR and wellbeing)

Nominations are now open, and will close on 14 October, where each submission will then be assessed by Enterprise Nation’s panel of industry experts. From there, five advisers will be chosen per category, creating a shortlist of 50 superstar advisers!

After that, it’s down to the public, who will be able to vote between 19 October – 15 November to decide who will scoop the top prize in each category. The winners will be revealed throughout the final week of November.

Do you know a worthy nominee? Are you a worthy nominee? Get your submission in before 14 October!
