Last night saw the hotly anticipated Lancashire Business Awards take over the elegant Stanley House Hotel, for a night of celebration, networking and entertainment. Arranged by Downtown Lancashire in Business, the annual awards dinner highlighted the best businesses and personalities of Lancashire in 2014.
We were proud to be there and happy to see so many local businesses being celebrated. The event was a sell out and everyone was in good spirit, which ensured there was a special atmosphere on the night. It was a lovely opportunity to catch up with old friends, as well as making a few new ones along the way.
It was even better to see so many friends of Magma Digital winning awards. Our neighbours on Winckley Square, Freshfield, won the ‘Best PR & Marketing Agency’ award and 3ManFactory took home the ‘Best Digital Agency’ award. Garratts Insurance were the recipients of the ‘Best Use of Social Media’ award and Preston’s College were recognised as ‘Best Employer of the Year.’
The individual award winners were Jeff Taylor from Hays, who received the Chief Executive’s award; Rob Binns from Cotton Court was crowned best ‘Business Personality’ and Ruth Connor from Marketing Lancashire took home the ‘Contribution to Lancashire’ award. We believe they were all worthy winners! You can find the full list of award winners on the Downtown website.
Congratulations to every award winner and well done to everyone that was nominated for their contributions to Lancashire. Furthermore, we would like to say a very big thank you to Downtown Lancashire in Business for hosting with such finesse and aplomb!
