Today, I am excited to announce that We Clear Blockages is a nominee for the prestigious Northern Enterprise Awards 2023. As your local drainage company in Preston, we work throughout the Northwest. Therefore, this nomination comes as a great honour.
A Journey from Labourer to Business Owner
For over two decades, the drainage industry has been my home. Starting as a labourer, I went from assisting on multimillion-pound projects to becoming a business owner. This year marks the culmination of twenty-two years of hard work, experience, skill development, and education. With guidance from mentors, such as Lateef Badat MSc, “The Business Catalyst.” Furthermore, fuelled by invaluable advice from Robert Binns and Boost Lancashire.
What is The Northern Enterprise Awards?
The Northern Enterprise Awards is a celebration of the tenacity and dedication displayed by businesses based in the North. This region has a diverse economic landscape, with a strong presence in the service sector, manufacturing, and a thriving community of SMEs and startups. These businesses are the backbone of Northern England’s economy and, as such, deserve commendation and recognition for their outstanding contributions.
The Significance of SMEs in Northern England
Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are the lifeblood of Northern England’s economy, constituting a staggering 99% of all businesses in the region. These SMEs generate over half of the nation’s business turnover, making an incredible £2 trillion annual contribution to the UK economy. The importance of recognising the achievements of these entrepreneurial heroes and their dedicated employees cannot be overstated.
Honouring Resilience and Innovation
SME News is returning for the fifth year with the Northern Enterprise Awards 2023. In a time when the business community faces formidable financial challenges and concerns. SMEs have proven to be exceptionally resilient and pivotal to economic recovery, as demonstrated during the Global Financial Crisis of 2007-2009. SME News aims to underscore this resilience and provide the recognition it deserves.
