Proud Sponsors of the Shropshire Chamber 2023 Business Awards 

20 Jun 2023

It’s an exciting time for Shropshire businesses this week as Business Leaders across the area iron their shirts and hang their dresses ahead of Friday’s Shropshire Business Awards.  

The Team at WR Partners are once again proud sponsors of the Shropshire Business Awards as award sponsors for the category “The Trailblazer – Innovation Award.” This award recognises companies who have spotted a market gap and thought outside the box to fill it.  

As a Firm, we feel aligned with this award, as we, too, hope to change our profession and make it more modern and sustainable.  

We recognise how innovation benefits the local community by driving economic growth, enhancing the quality of life, solving societal challenges, and fostering collaboration and community engagement. By embracing and supporting innovation, communities can create a positive environment for progress and prosperity. 

Simon Baker, Commercial Partner at WR Partners, joined the panel to judge the entries for this year’s award. The businesses were interviewed and evaluated on the following criteria: 

  • Your USP: what makes you stand out from the competition? 

  • Use of technology to improve engagement 

  • Impact of forward-thinking policies on Sales and profits 

  • Imaginative techniques used to identify and attract customers 

  • Testimonials, sustainability and Potential for future growth 


Simon shares his insight from the judging experience, “It is my privilege to support exceptionally talented businesses across Shropshire, and I was honoured to serve as a judge for this year’s esteemed awards.” 

“In the past few years, the world has experienced significant changes and faced numerous challenges. This journey has made it abundantly clear that innovation is of utmost importance. The shortlisted companies each have incredible stories to tell about how and why they have innovated and the success their business is seeing now. It was inspiring to hear.” 

“Good luck to all the businesses at this year’s awards, I look forward to seeing you on the night!”
