TAMESIDE Business Family underlined its growing reputation when it took runner’s-up spot in the 2009 Enterprising Britain regional awards.

The judges were impressed by TBF’s innovative concept and its private sector-led approach to everything from promoting self-employment to working with communities where there are few enterprise role models.

Enterprising Britain is a key part of the Government’s drive to create the right conditions for enterprise across the UK.

Mark Hughes, executive director of economic development at the NWDA said: “There is no doubt that Tameside Business Family impressed the judges, who had an immensely difficult job.”

Councillor Kieran Quinn, Tameside Council’s Executive Member for economic services, added: “Tameside Business Family was delighted to be recognised and we feel this acknowledges our success in supporting local enterprise.

“Our borough did not receive any major financial support such as Local Enterprise Growth Initiative funding and our progress is entirely due to the initiative of the Tameside Council executive, the commitment of the Business Family team and the strong partnership and support of our businesses.

“It is a formula which demonstrates that a good team can deliver major achievements on a small budget”.

Phil Cowper, Tameside Council’s enterprise team leader, said: “We were delighted to be recognised as one of the top two most enterprising places in the North West. We are looking to reinvest the £15,000 prize money back into Tameside businesses.”

Examples of how we are managing to change attitudes locally include:

Enterprise Bus

Enterprise Days at Local Supermarkets

Recession Busting Event

Local Enterprise Awards

Women’s Enterprise Network
