Firms urged to enter Fenland Enterprise Business Awards

FENLAND’S best and brightest are urged to get their nominations in for the Fenland Enterprise Business Awards (FEBA).

After the runaway success of last year’s inaugural event, even more business leaders can give employees a motivational boost by putting their firms in for awards.

There are 10 categories up for grabs in total, with some of the most sought after awards including the coveted Employee of the Year, Business Person of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Amanda Carlin, winner of last year’s Women in Business Award, said FEBA made a huge difference to people’s confidence.

She said: “It was truly wonderful to be appreciated as a business leader and for my business model and vision to be appreciated by business experts.”

Andrew Sparrow, whose company Fenland Leisure Products (FLP) won the environment and community award and the overall Business of the Year prize, said: “It increased staff morale, the team’s enthusiasm to grow FLP and to continually make improvements.

“The awards have been fantastic for us. I feel every business in Fenland should make the most of the opportunity to enter this year and raise awareness of the brilliant work they do.”
