Nominations open for second Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards

Nominations for the 2020 Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards have opened.

This year’s ceremony in July was a sell-out, with 400 tickets snapped-up and more than 100 nominations made. And next year there are more chances to recognise the region’s talent with five brand-new categories available to enter.

Taking place on Friday, 3rd July at the Bonus Arena in Hull, the awards evening is expected to be a key event on the area’s annual business events calendar.

There will be 15 categories to enter, including the five brand-new awards. These include Customer Hero of the Year – recognising team members that provide a standout service, alongside the new Mentor award.

The Team Impact award has also split into two categories to incorporate all business sizes, and the First-Class Service award is now a team category.

BBC Radio Humberside’s Lucy Clark will compere for the evening and the guest speaker will be comedian and former Head of Social at drinks brand Innocent, Helena Langton.

In addition, Wilberforce Sixth Form College has once again kindly committed to support the awards as headline sponsor. The aim is to promote talent retention and development in the area, with a vision to raise the profile of talented and hardworking individuals.

Welcoming businesses from all sectors, the awards evening recognises and rewards both individual and team talent.

Entrepreneur, innovator and founder of the awards, Jo Fleming, said: “I’m delighted to bring the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards back for another year.

“Whether businesses are from the public or private sector, a large PLC or SME, we welcome any local business with a talented workforce, and hope to celebrate them on an even larger scale in 2020.

“I’m looking forward to finding out all about this year’s nominees and rewarding 15 deserving winners.”

Additional sponsors for the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards 2020 include HiViz Safety, Cranswick Country Foods Poultry, P&O Ferries, Hull City Council, Sewell Group, Cobus Communications, Bonus Arena and Federation of Small Businesses.
