A brand-new business awards is celebrating local talent in a bid to raise the profile of hardworking and dynamic individuals in the area.
Encouraging young professionals and businesses to stay and grow in the city, the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards (HEYPIBAs) acknowledge and reward both individuals and teams in all areas of work, across all industry sectors.
Sponsored by Wilberforce Sixth Form College and compered by BBC Apprentice winner Lee McQueen, the awards evening will see local businesses come together to celebrate their achievements.
Jo Fleming, Entrepreneur and Founder of the HEYPIBAs, says: “As a business woman that has operated in East Yorkshire for many years, I am truly passionate about not only recognising businesses, but also rewarding the people within the business itself. Without people, there is no business.”
“Hull is an ever-growing hub of activity, and it’s important to retain local talent and keep the skills that we have nurtured within the city. I hope that the HEYPIBAs can help contribute to this.”
The HEYPIBAs take place on 12 July at the DoubleTree by Hilton, from 6:30pm – 1am.
Nominations are now open, closing on 26 April. The shortlist will be announced on 10 May.
