We’ve been shortlisted in the South West Business & Community Awards 2019!


What a fantastic finish to the year!

We are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted for not one, but two categories in the South West Business & Community Awards 2019! We are overwhelmed that we were shortlisted amongst other inspiring businessmen and women. Just the fact we were shortlisted by such a prestigious panel is even more incredible.

This year they have had a record-breaking year for nominations as they have received 465 nominations (105 more than last year)!


The categories we have been shortlisted for are: –


  • The SME of The Year

  • The Male Entrepreneur of The Year

The awards scheme, organised by Great British Expos, recognises the region’s most ambitious, inspirational and exciting businesses, charities and individuals.

It is a massive achievement for everyone who has been shortlisted and they have said it’s been incredibly difficult for judges to shortlist due to the high standard of entries!

The entries are considered by a prestigious panel of judges removing the ‘friends and family’ voting process and making the short-listing accolade even more exciting and important to us.

The South West Business and Community Awards judging process sees a range of esteemed entrepreneurs come together to scrutinise and select the finalists from the short-listed nominees and choose the winners among them.

They have said “Amongst the current shortlisted nominations are entrepreneurs who had innovated unique solutions to the problems they faced, put their heart and soul into making their industry better, overcome personal and professional hardship to triumph in business, and more”.

The winners from the 14 categories will be announced at the award ceremony in The DoubleTree by Hilton, at Swindon, on Thursday January 23rd.


The Awards

The awards will be hosted by Alison Edgar, The Entrepreneurs Godmother, who is based within the South West and is renowned for helping entrepreneurs of all shapes and sizes. She is incredibly passionate about helping start-ups and SMEs which is why she has been voted one of the UK’s top 10 business advisors, won multiple awards and been invited to both Downing Street and Buckingham Palace.
