"We're delighted to be a multi-award winner at the inaugural UK Business Awards. We won ‘Best Place to Work’ and took home a silver award for ‘Customer Centric Organisation’. Both awards recognise a lot of hard work put into creating and maintaining a great culture, where both our employees and customers come first. In both categories we were up against some of the most recognisable brands throughout the UK and Europe. A great day was had by all and we’re already looking forward to next year" Alexander Westrell, Group Head of Communications, Unibet

"Winning two UK Business Awards was a thunderbolt of pride, elation and awesomeness. Our main problem now is we have to buy a bigger trophy case. I would strongly urge anyone who's got an awesome business to enter... Because the thrill of victory is worth every minute you spend entering"
Parry Malm, CEO, Phrasee

"It was a great honour to represent our hometown of Port Talbot at the UK Business Awards in London. We hope the fantastic recognition we have received will be a source of inspiration to other businesses and budding entrepreneurs. If you put your mind to it, you really can take on the biggest brands in the world!"
Daniel Crossland, Operations Director, Solar Plants Ltd
