The King's Award for Enterprise

The King’s Awards for Enterprise recognises outstanding achievement by British businesses in the categories of innovation, international trade, sustainable development and promoting opportunity through social mobility. 

Instituted by Royal Warrant in 1965, it is the most prestigious business awards in the British Isles, with recipients recognised as being among the best of British businesses.

The Office of the Lieutenant-Governor was keen to introduce the awards to Guernsey, recognizing the huge wealth of businesses eligible and deserving of recognition. Having attained the enthusiastic support of Deputy Steve Falla and Alice Gill from the Guernsey Chamber of Commerce, we then held a reception to launch the initiative here in Guernsey.

Invited guests from Guernsey businesses, both large and small had a presentation from representatives from the UK Department of Trade and Industry, who support the awards in the UK. We were thrilled to welcome Nicky and Chloe from the London office who have been very supportive in assisting the GCOC. Setting up a whole new jurisdiction outside of the UK with their own system of taxes has given them a new challenge and the visit to the Bailiwick has really helped them to understand a bit more about the us as a Crown Dependency.
