The North East Entrepreneur Awards
We were lucky enough to attend the recent annual North East Entrepreneur Awards. The evening was the first to be held at the Newcastle Crown Plaza’s newly refurbished Boiler Shop and was hosted by TV comedian Jason Cook. We were joined by over 300 leaders of some of the most successful North East businesses as we came together to celebrate some of the greatest achievements in the region.
Our focus was on the Lifetime Achievement Award as we were honoured to be a sponsor for the deserved winner Mr John Fenwick. He is often regarded as the man behind the growth of the UK’s largest independent department store group and hailed as the genius behind the much heralded flagship Newcastle store’s Christmas window displays. Mr Fenwick said “Thank you North East Entrepreneurs for having presented me with the Lifetime Achievement Award. It would not have been possible without the wonderful team of staff I lead. I am flattered.”
