e're really pleased to announce that Prosper has been awarded the New Company Award at the Essex Business Awards. We submitted our application in the summer of this year, and were of course thrilled to be informed that we'd been selected as a finalist. Sponsored by Systematics International Ltd the award was the first of the evening to be announced after our fantastic awards dinner and brilliant entertainment by Michael J Fitch
Thank you to all the judges and sponsors for hosting a brilliant evening. Everyone who was there on Friday has done so well to be part of the evening and recognised for their commitment to business excellence in Essex.
From the Essex Business Awards website is some information about the history of the awards:
The glittering Newsquest Business Awards ceremonies have grown into huge impressive social events since their humble beginnings 20 years ago. The first event of its kind was started in 1994 in Basildon at the local Holiday Inn with a small gathering of 100 people.
It was a far cry from the glamorous, black-tie, light-show extravaganzas held today, where hundreds of glammed-up people pack venues such as the Cliffs Pavilion in Westcliff, the Towngate Theatre in Basildon and Charter Hall in Colchester. The awards were originally put on as an off-shoot to a business supplement then put out by Newsquest, to help develop a healthy local economy and raise company awareness, as well as provide networking opportunities.
