The Concierge Medical Business and Young Entrepreneur Awards returned this year bigger and better for the 2021 event after being cancelled last year due to COVID. Held at the Cotswold House Hotel and Spa in Chipping Campden on Tuesday 23rd November and brilliantly compared by Loyd Grossman CBE, author, journalist, and TV presenter who brought down the house with his charm and quick wit.
The Chipping Campden Business Forum’s annual event sponsored by Concierge Medical Practice has seen a tenfold growth in entrants in its returning year due to several changes made to the awards this year to further engage the community including being able to nominate others for the awards and welcoming a celebrity host for the first time.
Concierge Medical has been the headline sponsor of the annual events since 2017 and continues to support the event post covid with a three-year sponsorship deal. Simon Gillson, Medical Director opened the event with a speech referencing the resilience, diversification, passion and hard work businesses and organisations have had to demonstrate over the pandemic to survive and thrive. Simon adds, “We are proud to be headline sponsor of the awards that champion Cotswolds communities and businesses for their dedication and achievements. As a small, fast-growing business we understand the value and impact on business growth that entering and winning awards can have.”
The Awards are unique in their long-standing commitment to young entrepreneurs offering a platform for Chipping Campden School’s business enterprise scheme for secondary and Sixth form students. James Slattery, Chipping Campden School’s Head of Work-Related Learning provided an engaging and enthusiastic overview of the student nominations before The Campden BRI Young Entrepreneurs Awards 2021 winners were announced to be Brooke Rossney, Gracie King, Abigail Browning, Ceira Townsend.
Chipping Campden Business Forum Director and Co-Founder of the Awards, Nick West, explains: “The awards are the perfect opportunity to celebrate the 2021 nominees and winners after such a challenging year for businesses. We are passionate about creating and nurturing our business and entrepreneurial talent and this starts by showcasing the great work they do.”
