Enable have been shortlisted for Business of the Year at the Pride of Stratford 2012 awards. Enable’s CEO, Denys Shortt, has been shortlisted for the Entrepreneur of the Year and Citizen of the Year awards.
Judges have praised the outstanding quality of entries received for the inaugural Touch FM Pride of Stratford Awards 2012 with DCS.
After hours of deliberation, the judging panel confirmed the nominees who are in the final reckoning for an award. The ceremony, created and hosted by Touch FM (Stratford’s local radio station), will be presented at a glittering event in Stratford upon Avon on 17th February 2012. The night will reflect and recognize the best that Stratford District has to offer.
The judges have selected just 39 finalists from hundreds of applications. Each of the 13 categories (which include Business of the Year, Citizen of the Year and the Stratford’s Pride Award) has three finalists.
The Judges are: Gina Fusco (Head of Strategy and Marketing, NFU Mutual), Richard Egginton (CEO, Stratford Town Trust), and Steve Orchard (CEO, Touch FM). Cllr Stephen Thirlwell (Deputy Leader, Stratford-on-Avon District Council) attended on behalf of Cllr Chris Saint (Leader, Stratford-on-Avon District Council).
Steve Orchard said: “I would like to congratulate everyone who has entered for making the Touch FM Pride of Stratford Awards a great contest to judge. The calibre of the entries from around our area is nothing short of outstanding”.
Cllr Chris Saint said: “It’s fantastic to see so many deserving businesses, individuals and organisations from across the district – the job of the judges was a real challenge because of the quality of the entries. I’m confident that the awards will reflect the absolute Pride of Stratford!”
