Video Interview 
Every nominee will be asked to take part in a 15-minute video interview with our MD, Amalia Brightley-Gillott. Please don’t worry, it won’t be the Spanish Inquisition! It’s so we can find out more about the business and the people behind it. This will be used by the judging panel in addition to your nomination form. Interviews will take place via Skype, so please make sure you put your best foot forward, and dust and polish the office behind you.
