I am pleased to announce that I was fortunate enough to be chosen as the one of the winners of the BT Essence of the Entrepreneur Competition 2009. The competition looks to recognise and reward entrepreneurs who have been innovative, and particularly successful with the help of technology. My portrait taken by Rankin as part of the campaign and this will be on display at gallery@oxo in London’s Southbank along with the 19 other winners. The exhibition runs from 28th January – 28th February 2010, please see the following website for more details: BT Essence of the Entrepreneur.
In my opinion being chosen as a winner is a great reflection on the team of people that have helped our company get to the position we are in, and is a fantastic way to start 2010.
It is also nice to bring a bit more good news into the borough of South Tyneside especially after the fantastic achievements of Joe McElderry in The X Factor. Good luck to him, lets hope that he is given the time and the patience to develop into a world class star.
