We’re finalists in the Mercury Business Awards 2023

mercury business award finalists

When I say we, I mean “I”, but that also really means the whole team…

So, I’ve been nominated for the “Businessperson of the Year” award, and although the award recognises an individual, I wouldn’t be able to do what I do without the amazing team I have that works beside me. What’s more, I’m proud to call each one of them my friend. They continue to support the business and we work together to achieve goals and targets that mean we all get to benefit.

What are the awards?

The annual awards recognise the very best businesses across Stamford, Rutland, Bourne and the Deepings and this year the ceremony is taking place at the Rutland Hall Hotel on September 15th.

Judges go through hundreds of entries across a wide number of categories to shortlist just three businesses for each award with Anna Morrish of Quibble making the final three in the Businessperson of the Year award.

What does it mean for us?

The awards are independently judged and all the finalists get free tickets to attend, so there’s no monetary exchange. I mention this as there so many vanity awards out there that mask themselves as real awards and yet you have to either pay hundreds of pounds to attend and only attendees win the awards, or you have to pay to get the trophy and only then do you “accept” the award.

These awards are true. They are genuine. If we win, it’s real recognition for everything we do. Even to be a finalist is pretty awesome, and we’re up against other worthy contenders:

Businessperson of the Year Finalists

  • Mark Hastings of i10 – a digital, data and technology specialist based in Langtoft
  • Anna Morrish of Quibble – a digital marketing agency firm based in Uppingham
  • Samantha Davis-Wright of Wright Care at Home – a home care service in Stamford and Bourne
