The MDHUB held its first ever Awards ceremony at the new MDHUB Leaders Lunch on October 23rd 2019 at the glorious venue of Hendall Manor Barns at Herons Ghyll in East Sussex.
MDHUB Directors Phil Green and Fiona Shafer luckily find themselves in the very privileged position of being asked along to Judge and Chair a number of business awards across the South East of England and this year they decided that it was about time that they utilised this wealth of experience to create their own awards for the very talented and varied Members of the MDHUB.
The MDHUB Awards were positioned as a clear acknowledgement and recognition of outstanding achievement by Members in their award category.
Our Award winners were chosen against the following criteria in their category :
Their individual impact in MDHUB Workgroups in regard to :
- Their contribution to others, their honesty and engagement
- Their companies impact in the wider environment and community
- The way that they conduct themselves as Leaders
The very worthy award recipients were nominated from within the MDHUB by the MDHUB Team of Facilitators and Phil and Fiona, who work day in and day out with Members.
We were absolutely delighted at the immediate response of the sponsors for these awards , all of whom were from within the MDHUB , demonstrating true peer to peer support.
Our heartfelt thanks to all of our sponsors : Cheesmur Building Contractors, Brightec, DMH Stallard, Swindells Chartered Accountants, Design Specific, E & S Heating and Ventilation, LMS Group, Extech Cloud, Plus Accounting and The French Bedroom Company.
