Yorkshire Business Masters will celebrate business success

THE best entrepreneurs and businesses in Yorkshire will again be celebrated at TheBusinessDesk.com’s fourth annual Business Masters Awards which are launched today.

Last year’s winners included entrepreneur and former IoD chairman Margaret Wood and Fletchers Bakeries, whose inspiring story of fighting back from a fire and then flooding to become a major supplier to Britain’s major supermarkets won it the Yorkshire Grit Award.

The Masters awards will recognise success in innovation, international trade, grit, social responsibility and leadership, while new business success will also be celebrated in the Yorkshire Newcomer award.

The lunchtime event, to be held on Thursday June 27 at Aspire in Leeds, is a fresh alternative to other business awards events. With just six awards, the focus is on quality, not quantity and all shortlisted companies and individuals are interviewed at the event making the businesses the stars of the show.Yorkshire Masters 2013
