Sophia Hayes, Sales Director and Editor of Inspirational Magazine

Companies have been given extra time to enter this year’s Birmingham Post Business Awards.

The deadline extension is announced as Inspirational Magazine reveals it is sponsoring BPBA 2017 to celebrate entrepreneurial success.

The bi-annual leading luxury lifestyle magazine offers readers stories about Business and Finance; Home, House and Garden; Fine Dining; Beauty, Health & Lifestyle and It’s a Man’s World.

As teams prepare for the autumn/ winter edition Sales Director and Editor Sophia Hayes took time out to explain why she is backing the awards saying: “We are lucky enough to feature some of the West Midlands’ brightest businesses within our glossy pages.

"This award ceremony is not only a fantastic opportunity for us to network with other businesses, but is also a chance to tip out hats to fellow businesses making a name for themselves in the region."

Inspirational Magazine, which is published bi-annually and created in-house by Champions (UK) plc, reaches over 100,000 readers and is distributed to top establishments.

In 2015 Champions launched its sister publication, Inspirational London.

Sophia continued: “We started Inspirational Magazine back in 2012 and so we know first-hand how challenging building a brand or product from the ground up can be, but when the efforts finally begin to come together, it is a feat which is always worth the stress.

“Some of the businesses that are being celebrated at the awards will have likely overcome the turbulent economic times and navigated their way back into the right direction, and the fact that they are where they are today is fantastic.

“This drive to overcome the hurdles that may have presented themselves along the way, is something that truly deserves to be acknowledged and rewarded and we are looking forward to raising a toast to them all.”
