Nominations are open in the International Association of Book-keepers (IAB) Finance and Small Business Awards 2014 for businesses to nominate their bookkeeping heroes.
Online PR News – 24-February-2014 – Kent – Designed to inspire and recognise excellence among IAB bookkeeping members, two high profile categories – Accountant of the Year and Small Business Mentor of the Year– are also open to non-members of the bookkeeping organisation.
The Accountant of the Year award will recognise either an accountant or firm of accountants who have gone above and beyond to help their clients.
Nominations can be made by a client, their employer or a bookkeeper they work closely with, who should explain why the nominee deserves to win this award.
The Small Business Mentor of the Year award goes to an individual that has made an outstanding contribution as a volunteer business mentor over the past year.
The judges will be looking for an individual that has not only made a difference to the business of their mentee(s), but who supports the emergence of new and growing enterprises in their region and sector.
They can be nominated for this award by their mentee, colleague or other professional that has recognised the contribution this individual has made in the field.
“These awards reward the very best practice in the fields of bookkeeping, accountancy and small business mentoring,” said Malcolm Trotter, Chief Executive of the IAB.
“They will be presented at a reception in May at one of London’s landmark buildings, the Gherkin, and provide an excellent opportunity to network with others from the financial professions.”
The deadline for nominations is noon on Monday, March 31. For more details, and to nominate, visit the IAB awards website.
