Sewell Group proud sponsor of business awards celebrating the regions business champions

The Hull Daily Mail / Hull Live Business Awards have launched for 2020, back for a 21st year and underlining the very best Hull and East Yorkshire has to offer. Now, more than ever, we need to celebrate our business champions.

Sewell Group is proud sponsors of Hull Daily Mail Business Awards for another year, celebrating the regions business champions.

We will again be sponsoring the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ award which recognises those who have had a big impact, either running their own business or working as part of a business.

The awards ceremony will take place on November 19 and will be hosted at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel in Hull City Centre. A total of 15 awards will be handed out at the glittering ceremony.

BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin will be the guest host for the awards for the second consecutive year and there will be a keynote speech from Jo Farley, the founder of chocolate firm Green & Blacks.

It has been a difficult start to the year with companies across the UK facing the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

But amid this crisis, like in the darkest times that followed the 2008 crash, entrepreneurial spirit, hard work and dedication rises up.

With a focus on food, ports, logistics and energy, Hull and the East Riding have been awash with key workers, keeping the lights on, shelves stacked and country moving.

Entries will be accepted until Friday, September 18, with finalists announced in October. For more details, and to enter, click here.
