East Dorset Gold Business Awards

Who are we?

Recognising Excellence, Rewarding Success

Welcome to the East Dorset Gold Business Awards, the premier platform acknowledging and rewarding business success in our community. Our mission is to spotlight and commend entrepreneurial businesses that have made significant contributions to the local economy, business innovation, and community spirit. You cannot enter or nominate in these awards as they are the 'Winners of the Winners' in the Poole, Bournemouth, Christchurch, Purbeck, Ringwood, Ferndown and Wimborne Business Awards. Our judges look at winning entries in each category across all 6 awards and then judge them again to arrive at our East Dorset winners. (Please note part of the Ringwood area is in Dorset) The awards ceremony will be held on Tuesday March 26th 2024 at Broadstone Golf Club and those shortlisted will be advised by Monday February 26th 2024

Local businesses are the backbone of the UK  economy

East Dorset Gold Business Awards Judges

A panel of independent judges assesses the East Dorset Gold Business Awards entries and nominations. The process is done online, and the judges cast their votes on a spreadsheet that is then entered onto the master spreadsheet, giving us our winners.

Their independence from each other means the votes are a true reflection of their views with no outside influence.
