Following a record number of high-caliber entries, the Prescient team was delighted to attend the Greater Birmingham Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Awards (GBCC Awards) and Dinner as finalists, having been shortlisted as nominees in the category of Excellence in International Business.
The glittering black-tie event, hosted by Heart presenter, Ed James, was held at the ICC on Thursday 11th April 2019 in front of over 1200 people from across the region who came to celebrate the achievements of local business.
On the night, a highlight of the business year, awards were bestowed to deserving winners across 10 categories, presided over by Saqib Bhatti, GBCC President, Chief Executive, Paul Faulkner, and the Mayor of the West Midlands, Andy Street CBE.
This year’s ceremony had special significance for Prescient who first attended the awards in 2018 as guests. Just over 12 months later, having founded a successful consultancy business, they were attending the 2019 event as award nominees in a category with strong competition from established businesses.
Although Prescient may not have picked up the award on the night (congratulations to AFL Architects who were the worthy winners), the event provided a fantastic opportunity to celebrate their achievements, with the Chamber offering the platform to showcase their talent, success stories, and outstanding performance to a wider audience – locally, nationally and internationally.
David Thomson, Founder, and Partner – Strategy & Leadership said “I’m overwhelmed and incredibly proud of the team for all the creative vision and hard work they have delivered which has made a huge difference to our clients and undoubtedly contributed to receiving this nomination. To be shortlisted for Excellence in International Business is fantastic recognition for the team and has exceeded our expectations. Our first year in business (2018) has been a tremendous success, we continue to grow with more exciting plans, and 2019 is already turning out to be our biggest and best year yet”.
