The NWAA successfully launched a new category of the awards for 2013, the Business University Challenge. The challenge will saw young university and business teams go head to head in a series of mini challenges, these will test their innovation, problem solving and communication skills to name a few.
The Challenge will be run again for our 2014 New Talent Awards and will be held on 4th February 2015 at Preston's College.
The top 3 teams will be announced on the day, but in no particular order, those teams will then be invited to our 2014 New Talent Awards evening (26th Feb) where the winning team will be announced and presented with a cash prize of £1,500 and trophy.
During the event we will also be looking for individual team members displaying professional excellence. These prizes will be awarded on the day of the challenge and will also included tickets to our 2014 New Talent Award evening.
There are a total of 10 places for teams to compete on the day and these have been broken down into:
• 2 places for companies with 500+ employees
• 3 places for companies with under 500 employees
• 5 places for university teams
Teams will be allocated a place on a first come first serve basis.
As the challenge is part of our New Talent Awards, which recognise the emerging young talent within the industry, each average team age must NOT exceed 22 years of age on the date of the challenge.
