Finalists revealed for EDP Business Awards 2014

Staff Ben WoodsI am delighted to reveal the 36 finalists of this year’s EDP Business Awards.

For more than two decades, the EDP Business Awards have celebrated the very best in our business community, honouring the achievements of our leading companies and showcasing the region’s strength and depth.

And with unemployment falling and strength returning to the UK economy, there are signs that this year’s celebration could be the precursor to a more prosperous year for all.

With support from our lead sponsor Anglian Water, this year’s winners will be announced during a gala dinner at the Norfolk Showground Arena on Thursday November 6.

The first award to be presented on the night will be the Denise Anderson Award for Outstanding Achievement in association with Anglian Water, while the ceremony culminates with the presentation of the Barclays Business of the Year Award – with the winning business being drawn from our 36 finalists.

The awards ceremony on November 6 will also begin with a pre-dinner reception in association with Marsh and drinks partner Adnams, and following a three-course meal, the ceremony will be hosted by BBC Look East presenter Stewart White.

The programme also includes an address from Dr Steve Bull who served as the headquarters psychologist for Team GB at three Olympic Games, and is the principal leadership coach for the England and Wales Cricket Board, working closely with the squad who succeeded in regaining The Ashes from Australia.

This year’s awards have generated more than 200 entries, and there is no doubt the quality of the businesses which have made it through to the final.

Once again the awards show that we have plenty to celebrate in our region and the ceremony promises to be an unforgettable night.

I would like to thank all those who entered this year’s awards and also congratulate those successful businesses which have made it to our finals.
