Enterprise support organisations uniquely recognised for the ninth year

National Enterprise Network (NEN) today announced the winners of its annual awards, at the NatWest sponsored National Enterprise Network Annual Conference. Winners of the nine categories were announced by National Enterprise Network Chairman Chris Pichon and facilitator Declan Curry at the event held at the RBS, London.

Awards were presented to Network members to recognise excellence in the delivery of enterprise support and encourage the exchange of good practice in categories for: Enterprise Communicator of the Year, Client Engagement Award, Future of Enterprise Support, Enterprise Coach/Mentor of the Year, Enterprise Team of the Year, Unsung Hero of the Year and Enterprise Support Organisation of the Year.

The organisation received high quality entries from their network of members across each award category – testament to the excellence and achievements across the Network. Amanda Hurford, Assistant Director, Enterprise Directorate at the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills joined Chris Pichon in judging each entry and choosing the eventual winners.

National Enterprise Network is the only membership body in England for organisations working in the enterprise support sector.

The Client Engagement Award sponsored by Sage, asked for nominations from NEN member organisations that have used creative methods to connect to their clients. NEN were looking for nominations that could demonstrate innovative, interactive and engaging approaches and compelling new ways or places to connect.

The Client Engagement Award was awarded to Centa, who are based in London. Centa focused on the jewellery sector in Hatton Garden and set up a creative hub to provide affordable space for 35 independent jewellery businesses. They impressed the judging panel with their understanding of the unique nuances of this sector, and the strong links they formed with the London School of Fashion. It was great to see that Centa was instrumental in the introduction of new and innovative techniques to its clients, which included 3D printing, computer-aided design and laser cutting.
