drp walked away with the “High Growth Business of the Year 2016” on Thursday evening at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s’ Business Awards, held at the University of Worcester Arena, 9th June. Now in their 15th year, the Awards celebrate the success, innovation and hard work of businesses in the two counties and provide the opportunity for local, regional and national recognition. We were also shortlisted for Commitment to People Development, and having won an award we will automatically be entered into the British Chamber of Commerce Awards, which will happen later on in the year.
Over 500 business people gathered to celebrate the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce’s Business Awards, with 12 categories, ranging from Entrepreneur of the Year, Commitment to People Development and High Growth Business of the Year. The evening consisted of a networking drinks reception, three course dinner and raising money for four local charities through a raffle and games. A key highlight of the evening was hearing from Keynote speaker Colin Jackson, Olympic silver medallist, world record holder and TV personality.
