Behind any good event there is a team of sponsors who bring credibility, prestige and support to the events they work with. This year’s Nottingham Post Business Awards, which is set to take place on 29 May, is no different and has a fantastic network of sponsors to its name.
Headlining the event is business energy specialists, Yü Energy, who supply businesses in the retail, food, leisure, industrial, offices and healthcare sectors with gas, electricity and soon water.
Bobby Kalar is the CEO, of Yü Energy and was the driving force behind their headline sponsorship.
Explaining their reasoning for headlining this year’s awards, Bobby said: “Apart from the pride that being a Headline Sponsor brings, we felt that this provided a great opportunity to recognise the success of all businesses across the Nottingham area rather than just focusing on one particular sector. As a headline sponsor, it gives us a brilliant platform, both to showcase how we help businesses with their energy needs, but more importantly to be part of this celebration of Nottingham’s business excellence.”
The Nottingham Post Business Awards has seen significant growth over the years both in the number of businesses entering into the categories, and the calibre of those sponsoring. Bringing a boost to the region’s business community is just one of the key benefits the awards bring to Nottingham.
Bobby identified some others: “We believe these awards serve to highlight the array of business talent that the region has to offer, helping to drive inward investment and attract business talent into the region. They also provide a source of inspiration for other aspiring businesses and entrepreneurs to continue striving to deliver excellence in their own field, further enhancing the economic reputation of the region.”
He continued: “They help to galvanise the business community across the region providing networking opportunities that can only serve to strengthen the region’s business community. This helps in fostering links between businesses and sharing ideas and best practice across the area.”
Despite being an established and crucial part of the region’s business community, Yü Energy recognise the importance of supporting other businesses on their endeavour to success, as Bobby discussed: “It takes an enormous amount of dedication, hard work and perseverance to develop the kinds of successful enterprises on show at the Nottingham Post Business Awards. In order to encourage businesses to continue striving to deliver the next set of business success stories, it’s important that we take the time to acknowledge and recognise these fantastic achievements. This serves to recognise both the companies and the individuals that have been a part of this. In celebrating, these business success stories, we can all learn a lot from the success of others that we can then apply to our own businesses in the future.”
