'Our collaboration with SoGlos has been excellent. It’s a great platform which has enabled us to engage with regional businesses across Gloucestershire in the fight against climate change. We were delighted to sponsor the inaugural SoGlos Business Awards in 2021, so much so we did it again in 2022. Our experience of working with the SoGlos team has been a journey of excellence, commitment and great relationships.'
Jane Fielder-Scrivens, Partnerships & Marketing Manager - Ecotricity | ecotricity.co.uk
'Sponsoring the SGGBA 2021 awards provided us with meaningful access to the Gloucestershire business community. As a category sponsor we were able to broaden our reach across social channels helping build brand and reputational awareness throughout the region. The opportunity to engage with other sponsors and be part of the category shortlisting committee provided valuable insights into regional business sectors – their growth plans, pain points and more importantly business drivers. This enabled us to build a list of prospective, like-minded organisations for future lead generation and nurturing activity. The awards ceremony itself was a great platform to network and showcase our businesses to potential customers and business partners. The overall experience and contacts made from sponsoring the SGGBA awards in 2021 led us to sign-up quickly for 2022.'
