Driven International won International business of the year in the year prior. Making it to the finalists once again for 2018!
2018 has been a record year with the highest number of Inspire Business Award entries received since the awards began nearly 15 years ago! This made for a huge amount of reading and some great discussion and debate amongst the judging panel. The panel comprising of business leaders and experts from across the region, have now judged all of the entries received across the 13 categories and have shortlisted finalists in each category.
Visits to each of the finalists will be taking place over the next few weeks and the all-important winners will be revealed at the glittering gala dinner taking place on Thursday 22 November, where over 500 esteemed guests will gather in anticipation of the announcement.
The organisers would like to thank all those that have taken the time to enter this year, some very difficult decisions had to be made by the judges. If you entered and were not shortlisted please do not let it deter you from entering again next year.
Felicity Edwards, Managing Director of Destination Basingstoke, the organiser of the annual Inspire Awards programme “It’s always interesting to see the business behind the nomination and meet the real people that drive these north Hampshire businesses with such enthusiasm that leads to great successes!”
