Well what can I say, what a glamorous event and it was a real honour to hear about the finalists who have enjoyed great success with their businesses, it was really uplifting and motivating to hear about the likes of Solidor, Moddershall Oaks, Holdcroft Heating and EffeTech to name a few of the winners!
