• Congratulations Sarah on being shortlisted for Entrepreneur of the Year at East Midlands Chamber Awards!

    We are delighted to announce that Sarah Stevenson, one of our MD’s, has been shortlisted for Entrepreneur of the Year at East Midlands Chamber Business Awards 2022!

    More than 150 organisations from across Derbyshire, Leicestershire and Nottinghamshire have been recognised in the 2022 edition of the annual awards, celebrating the region’s world-class businesses. Mazars are once again the principal sponsors.

    The awards are split into three events for each county and feature 14 categories, ranging from Community Impact and Excellence in Collaboration to Excellence in Innovation and Commitment to People Development.

    The Derbyshire award winners will be announced at the Gala Dinner on Friday 11th November at Reach at Riverside Court, Derby. The night is a great chance to network and get to know the other finalists and sponsors. It’s also a super opportunity for businesses to come together and celebrate everything they have achieved in the last year.

    Awards night promises to be an evening to recognise the winners in each category, and applaud the wonderful local business communities that makes our East Midlands region so successful for entrepreneurs.

    Finalists will now have a chance to state their case for winning at a virtual judging day in which they will be interviewed by a panel including sponsors, a Chamber board member and a representative from the Chamber’s senior leadership team.

    We’re all keeping our fingers crossed for Sarah, but we wish the best of luck to all the finalists this year, who have all done amazingly well to be shortlisted!
