The awards will round off a month-long programme of business-focused activities taking place in South Kilburn as part of the Trust’s Love Business Month.

A variety of workshops, seminars and networking events will tackle tricky topics including tax, sales, how to start a business as well as social media among others.

The events aim to cater to everyone from keen business enthusiasts with a wealth of experience to those taking their very first steps in the industry culminating in the first ever South Kilburn Enterprise Awards.

Around 50 entrepreneurs and businesses including music producers, artists, sports coaching companies and fashion desingers operate from South Kilburn while a large number of those reside in the iconic South Kilburn Studios.

While a number of entrepreneurs from the area have gone on to gain recognition for their work in their chosen fields, the Trust aims to showcase the achievements of local residents and businesses in the community.

“So if you know someone over the last year that needs celebrating, we want to recognise that,” said the Trust’s CEO Mark Allan.
