Look North Presenter To Host The Barnsley And Rotherham Business Awards 2023

Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce is set to welcome BBC Look North presenter Amy Garcia, who will host its highly coveted Barnsley & Rotherham Business Awards.

Taking place on Friday 3rd November at the Magna Science Adventure Centre and sponsored by the RNN Group, the event will celebrate and showcase the exceptional achievements of businesses across South Yorkshire.

Amy Garcia is a well-known face on TV screens across Yorkshire, having presented the region’s most-watched news programme, BBC Look North, for an impressive 10 years. With her straight-talking nature and ability to put people at ease, Amy has become a trusted and respected figure.

Known for her adventurous spirit, Amy has never shied away from a challenge. From cycling the 250-mile Tour de France route across Yorkshire on a tandem for Sport Relief to dragging the Look North sofa 150 miles through snowstorms and torrential rain, Amy’s commitment to charity has seen her abseil down a 120-foot building, be strapped to an aeroplane, and plunge into caves beneath the Yorkshire Dales, helping to raise thousands of pounds for Children in Need.

Throughout the evening, Amy will present winners with awards from nine different categories and will also be responsible for crowning the winner of the Business of the Year Award.

Shane Young, Operations Director at Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, said:

“With her impressive background and her unwavering dedication to her community, Amy was the perfect choice to celebrate and honour the achievements of businesses in our region, and we are looking forward to giving her a warm welcome.

The Barnsley & Rotherham Business Awards is one of the highlights of the Chamber’s calendar of events, and whether you work for a large or small business, are just starting out on your business journey or celebrating a milestone anniversary, there’s never been a better time to celebrate your achievements over the past twelve months.”

Now in its fourteenth year, the Barnsley and Rotherham Business Awards has become a prestigious platform to recognise excellence, innovation and success across various sectors. This year’s awards introduces a new category, the Sustainability Award, which recognises businesses demonstrating a strong commitment to environmental practices and positively impacting the local community.

Businesses of all sizes and sectors within South Yorkshire’s ‘S’ postcode area, as well as members of the Barnsley & Rotherham Chamber of Commerce, are invited to participate by submitting nominations.

Entries are now open and will close on Friday 1st September 2023. Individuals and organisations are encouraged to put forward deserving businesses that have made a significant impact in their respective categories.

In addition to the category awards, the awards will also recognise the contributions of longstanding businesses that are celebrating their 25th, 50th, 75th and 100th anniversaries with a special salute to business award.
