Ward Security is boosting its profile with the sponsorship of three prestigious Kent awards in 2013. The bespoke security solutions provider joins a list of high profile sponsors for the 2013 Kent Excellence in Business Awards (KEiBA), as well as the Kent Community Safety Awards 2013 and the Safer Bromley Awards. With a lavish gala evening for the finalists, the KEIBA awards are one of the biggest events in the year for Kent businesses. The awards scheme is staged and produced by Kent County Council and the KM Group to recognise and reward excellence in Kent and Medway’s businesses. Ward Security is co-sponsoring the ‘Start Up Business of the Year’ category as the company appreciates that in this tough economic starting a new business is a great achievement in itself. David Ward, Ward Security’s managing director, believes Kent is home to many excellent businesses and is looking forward to seeing a high calibre of entry into this year’s awards “We are delighted to be involved with KEiBA and in particular the Start Up Business of the year award,” he said. “Many people talk about one day starting their own business but to actually do so takes a lot of hard work, drive and determination and those shortlisted for the final should be truly proud of themselves in their achivement. “ Meanwhile, March 2013 will see the Safer Bromley Partnership hold its 7th annual awards evening. The awards recognise those individuals and organisations that have made a significant contribution in making Bromley a safer place to live, work and visit over the last year.
