27 Sep Maidenhead and Windsor Business Awards 2017
Business people gathered for the first Maidenhead and Windsor Business Awards on Friday.
The event, organised by the Maidenhead & District Chamber of Commerce, was held at the Holiday Inn in Manor Lane. More than 250 people gathered for the glitzy awards ceremony to hear the winners of 12 awards announced.
Among them was the Maidenhead Advertiser, recognised for the best corporate responsibility programme. Goyals won the award for independent retailer, having been chosen via a public vote. Congratulations also went to Gardner Leader who won best SME and Pythagorus who won Business of the Year.
Compering the night was former Olympian Adrian Moorhouse, from management consultancy Lane4, while awards were presented by Royal Borough Deputy Mayor Cllr Dee Quick (Con, Clewer East). Chamber of commerce president Olu Odeniyi said:
“Everything worked smoothly and according to plan – nine months of meticulous planning and hard work has paid off and I saw my vision fulfilled. There was a sense of celebration for all businesses, and finalists who didn’t win an award said they celebrated as though they had done so.”
A message from Theresa May was read out on the night in which she said: “I know it takes hard work and dedication for a business to thrive and I am delighted to see these efforts being recognised. I would like to congratulate all those businesses who have won awards this evening.”
