Last week the shortlist was unveiled for The Yorkshire Post Excellence in Business Awards 2015. The shortlist includes companies of all shapes and sizes. They include household names and young brands like IndiaCoco striving to grow with passion, determination and resilience. We are absolutely delighted to announce that IndiaCoco has been nominated for Young Business of the Year. To be amongst the nominations is a key success and positive recognition in itself. What all of the nominations share is a passionate enterprising spirit, combined with the traditional Yorkshire virtues of thrift, strong work ethic and common sense. Last week, a judging panel met at The Yorkshire Post's headquarters in Leeds to decide who will walk away with the trophies on the most prestigious night in the region's corporate calendar. Nicola Furbisher, managing editor of The Yorkshire Post chaired the judging session, which included representatives from DLA Piper, Yorkshire Bank, PWC and Bradford University School of Management. The awards programme is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and we are looking forward to meeting the special guest this year, Archbishop of York, Dr John Sentamu who will be speaking about the responsibility in business in his address. Many congratulations to all companies great and small who have been shortlisted this year and we are looking forward to attending the event on October 14.
