The annual Surrey Business Awards took place on November 21st at Epsom Downs Racecourse in front of 400 leading business people from across the region.

The Awards, back for the second year, brought together the best in the county’s business community to celebrate their success.

The celebrations began with a sparkling drinks reception, kindly sponsored by Charles Russell Speechlys, followed by a three-course dinner and presentation of the awards by television comedian, Mark Dolan, who brought the house down.

Louise Punter, CEO at Surrey Chambers of Commerce, said: “The awards evening is always a fantastic opportunity to celebrate business in Surrey and recognise all of the achievements from companies of all sizes, that are doing outstanding work, helping others and giving something back to the community.”

This year saw a record-breaking number of nominations for each category, with representatives from 23 towns across the county making the shortlist of 56 finalists. Judges had an enormously difficult task, as the entries were of such a high standard.

Entries were judged by a panel of leading business experts from companies such as Heathrow Airport, NatWest, Mazars, The Ken Blanchard Companies, Surrey Business School, Partridge Muir & Warren, projectfive, Hart Brown Solicitors, Moore Kingston Smith, Sandown Mercedes-Benz of Guildford, Global, Surrey Business Magazine, Surrey Chambers of Commerce and Harrods Corporate Services.
