The SME Surrey Business Awards are a sought-after accolade of achievement, an endorsement of hard-work, determination and enterprise in business. Sponsored by the University of Surrey Surrey Business School there were seventeen categories available in this year’s awards. Businesses both large and small, old and new were recognised alongside not for profit organisations as well as individual business leaders and employees.
Over 300 guests from across Surrey attended the awards event to celebrate the achievements of companies in the thriving Surrey business region. As main sponsor Surrey Country Council commented, over 65,000 businesses are based in Surrey with the majority being SMEs. The evening kicked off with a drinks reception followed by a delicious dinner. After dinner we were entertained by a vocal trio from Encore Entertainments who got everyone into the celebratory mood, singing along to some much loved classics before the awards themselves began.
We were delighted to share our table with Connick Tree Care and private investigators Answers Investigation. Special congratulations went to their Private Eye Amy Coleman who was runner up the Apprentice of the Year award. Standout winners of the night were IT support company Ramsac who won both the Service Excellence and Business of the Year >50 employees awards. We were also delighted for our friends at Reigate Manor Hotel and The Massage Company who both won their respective categories.
The award we were nominated for was presented by Liz Turner and Mark Hunte from IT support company Waytime Technologies and the lucky winners were MRI technology specialists MR Solutions. Our Founder and CEO Rebecca Newenham said: “We are extremely proud to have been selected as a finalist for these regional business awards and to be able to attend this event. We would like to extend our congratulations to the winners MR Solutions as well as all the other winners, runners up and finalists on the night. We feel privileged to be part of such a vibrant Surrey business community and as one of the speakers said, we are all winners here tonight.”
