Supporting the ‘business oscars’

The National Business Awards, which open for entry next month, is recognised as the premier platform for recognising and rewarding success, innovation and best practise in business and have been dubbed ‘The Business Oscars’ by Prime Minister Gordon Brown. The programme culminates in a glittering awards ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on 13 November.
Andy Raynor, Chief Executive of Tenon, commented, “I was very impressed with the entrepreneurial drive and determination shown by all the finalists last year and, in particular, our winner Summit Media. I am very much looking forward to identifying this year’s finalists and rewarding dynamic companies with creative, entrepreneurial flair.”
The 2007 Tenon Award for Entrepreneurial Spirit was won by Summit Media, one of the UK’s leading internet marketing and e-commerce specialists.
Hedley Aylott, its Managing Director, said, “When we entered this award, then in its first year, we thought the criteria fitted Summit Media to a tee. They were looking for dynamic companies with creative, entrepreneurial drive, skilled at adapting to market changes quickly and succinctly and a record of identifying and exploiting market opportunities.”
Mike Faulkner, Director of the Awards said, “The sponsors do so much more than provide the funding essential to this independent programme’s existence. Tenon has committed to providing encouragement and support to finalists that includes many hours spent judging and analysing the entry forms. We are absolutely delighted that they have extended their valued sponsorship to 2008.”
