National Enterprise Network is pleased to announce the shortlist of entries for the 2018 National Enterprise Network awards – a programme established in 2007 to recognise excellence in the delivery of enterprise support, encouraging the exchange of good practice and the development of improved services and organisations.
The NEN Awards were established in 2007 to recognise excellence in the delivery of enterprise support, encouraging the exchange of good practice and the development of improved services and organisations.
Each year we make a call for our members to demonstrate how their organisations are excelling. This year it was once again very clear that there are some truly fantastic enterprise related initiatives and committed professionals working incredibly hard across the whole of England.
Selecting a shortlist is never easy, and this year was no different as the quality of entries was very high. The judging panel formed of NEN Chairman Graham Marley; Liz Smith, Head of Small Business – East, Barclays Business Banking and Peter Ibbetson, NEN Director together chose a number of NEN members that clearly showed us why they are award worthy.
