A gateway to growth: SUMS sponsors high-profile regional award

Sheffield University Management School is pleased to announce its sponsorship of a major regional business award.

The Sheffield City Region Business Awards celebrate the importance of business across the city region in 14 award categories, and the ceremony brings together the winners from the region’s four Chambers – Doncaster, Sheffield, Rotherham & Barnsley and Derbyshire – plus the Derbyshire Times Business Awards.

The Management School is sponsoring the Young Business Person of the Year Award. As Head of External Relations Ian Proctor explains, it was a natural choice: “The Sheffield City Region Business Awards are a great opportunity to unify the business community across the region, and to celebrate excellence and improvement. The Management School is proud to be associated with this particular award, as it resonates strongly with our of objective of helping produce the business leaders of the future.”

Sheffield Chamber’s executive director Richard Wright echoes this view, saying: “The Awards are not about comparing the region’s towns, but to make sure the best companies we have got in the area go forward and can compete nationally.”

The Sheffield City Region Business Awards will take place on 2 July 2015 at Ponds Forge, Sheffield. Find out more here:
