THE principal of Mansfield’s West Notts College says she is backing Chad’s Business Awards to support the entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
The college is sponsoring the Young Business Person of the Year category in the awards, which aim to find and reward the best performing individuals and companies in the area.
Principal and chief executive Asha Khemka said this week it is important to celebrate the contribution that individuals and business make to our area’s economic prosperity.
“As a major provider of employer-related training and apprenticeships, we are encouraged by the number of dynamic young people who are working hard to drive their businesses forward across Mansfield and Ashfield,” she said.
“The college is committed to nurturing young talent through our academic and vocational courses, while our student enterprise programme is already supporting the business people of tomorrow.
“Later this year we will launch our own entrepreneurial exchange to develop students’ entrepreneurial flair and support those who wish to start-up their own business.
“Young people are the job-creators of the future, which is why we are delighted to once again sponsor the Young Business Person of the Year category.”
There are some top prizes up for grabs again at the awards, ranging from Business Idea of the Year and Young Business Person of the Year to Community Contribution of the Year and Most Innovative Property/Building Development.
The ceremony will be held on Thursday 22nd November with a glittering event at the John Fretwell Sporting Complex at Sookholme, where the best of the area’s business community will be showcased.
The black tie event will see guests enjoy a champagne reception, four-course meal and ceremony.
