Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2020 Launched at Hatfield House


TAGS: General Business Information

The Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards Launch took place on January 23rd at the beautiful and historic Hatfield House. With over 100 members, guests and sponsors in attendance, the evening was a fantastic way to officially open the 2020 Awards.

Delegates had the opportunity to speak with a number of the 2020 Category Sponsors during the networking and exhibition. During the evening, delegates heard from the sponsor of the Education in Employment Award; Penny Carey, Dean of Hertfordshire Law School. As well as past winners and sponsors: Silvia Vitiello, Moore Kingston Smith; Madeleine Lewis, Silent Sentinel; and Martin Barrett, Sonovision.

This year we are delighted to have dual Headline Sponsors for the Awards: Hillier Hopkins and SA Law. During the Launch we heard from Neil Cundale, Principal, Hillier Hopkins:

“We’re delighted to be a headline sponsor for the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards for a fourth year. The awards are free to enter, so there is no cost to your business other than your time – and with so many potential benefits, I would say to those thinking about entering – go for it! My tip would be to make sure you clearly demonstrate what sets your business apart, showcasing the innovative and unique contributions your business is making in the County.”
