Who is your 2015 Company of the Year?

Oct. 16, 2015

The October 30th deadline for BBA nominations is just around the corner!

Don't miss the opportunity to nominate your company, or a deserving company you know, as 2015 Entrepreneur of the Year.

Last year's winner was The British School in Tokyo. Principal Brian Christian said the private school was proud of its win. He said: "We were very fortunate this year, I think, at the British Business Awards to be named company of the year. An award that took us very much by surprise but enormously gratifying and one we’re very proud of.

"I would certainly advise any company to get involved with the chamber of commerce, and with the British Business Awards, because it does give you access to a very broad and very very supportive community. It goes beyond the sort of networking process."

The British Business Awards, now in their eighth year, celebrate the best of British Business in Japan.

You can be nominated if you are a:

  • British Chamber of Commerce in Japan (BCCJ) Member
  • Japan-based and UK-owned firm
  • Japan-based firm, organisation or individual with significant UK links

Previous winners have found that the prestige has not only raised their profile but also helped boost their business:

"We won the Company of the Year BBA and we are very proud of it. Winning this award for us is recognition of our team’s effort: it's not only a few people, but a team effort, which has been received gladly by our employees."

- Philippe Fauchet, GlaxoSmithKline, 2012 BBA Company of the Year
