The Scarborough News Business Awards Evening. PA1547-BusAwards-52 BBC Presenter Clare Frisby presents the Award Winners:

This year’s awards features a brand-new headline sponsor, with University of Hull lending its prestigious weight to the night.

The superb event, at Scarborough Spa, includes three new categories this year – women in business, a Bridlington/Driffield outstanding business and an overall winner.

The categories also cover employers, entrepreneurs and exporters.

Don’t miss this excellent opportunity to spotlight your business, your colleagues or your achievements.

Editor Ed Asquith said: “Our business awards are now an essential part of the business calendar. The new categories provide another fresh dimension and we can’t wait to again recognise the marketing, industrial, digital, manufacturing and engineering companies of all sizes and types that are vital for our prosperity.”

On Monday April 25 a special launch breakfast will be taking place at the University of Hull’s Filey Road campus for past winners and attendees.

Guest speakers include Tina Boden who runs several micro-businesses.

Tina has always worked in the micro-business sector (self-employed, freelancers, businesses with less than 10 employees) and now runs Enterprise Rockers, which is a community designed to help support people who want to start their own businesses.

Also speaking at the free event is Laura Cotter. Laura is a director of BStreamlined, a business consultancy service for “forward-thinking organisations”.

She is a former Yorkshire Coast College student and has an engineering background.
