What Would You Ask the UK’s Top Business Minds?
The Carbon Trust Best Advice campaign offers UK business people the chance to find out
The Carbon Trust is running a competition to win business advice from some top business minds as part of its Best Advice campaign. Some of Britain’s best known and most successful leaders of industry have backed a campaign to help British businesses stop wasting energy by taking a free Carbon Survey. They have called these “the best free advice a business can get” and are now offering their own ‘best advice’ through a free competition.
The Carbon Trust’s Best Advice business gurus – including Ian Cheshire, Group CEO of Kingfisher and chairman of B&Q – are offering five winners the chance to quiz them on how to survive and thrive in 2010. The winners – from across the UK – will be invited to attend a private reception and discussion with Cheshire as well as Paul Thandi, chief executive of NEC Group, Dawn Gibbins, founder of Barefoot and the Veuve Clicquot Businesswoman of the Year, and Chris Harrop, director of the paving firm, Marshalls.
All people have to do to be in with a chance of winning is to share the best piece of business advice they have ever received. The Carbon Trust’s Best Advice gurus will select the five competition entrants who send in the most insightful, and relevant pieces of business advice.
Some of the business gurus are also offering an hour long one-to-one business mentoring session – a prize that money can’t buy.
To get involved, business people from across the UK are encouraged to enter via www.thebestadvice.co.uk
The reception will take place in London on 17 March 2010 and winners will be provided with travel and overnight accommodation.
Closing date: Midnight 8th March 2010
