Natwest GBEA Winner | Orderwise

The NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards aim to celebrate the stories that have taken entrepreneurs in the UK to where they are today, regardless of the size or turnover of their business.

The 2019 Midlands regional final took place at the Glee Club in Birmingham on Wednesday 25th September, where over 93 finalists from across the region gathered to celebrate those that had been shortlisted in 12 different categories. David had been shortlisted in the Family Business Entrepreneur of the Year category and he was over-the-moon to hear his name read out as the overall category winner on the night.

David Hallam said: “I’m honoured to have been crowned as the Family Business Entrepreneur of the Year at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards! There were thousands of entries and to have even been shortlisted was a great achievement – but to have come away with an award is just phenomenal!

Having won the regional finals, David will now go to the national finals of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, which will take place in London in November. Fingers crossed for then!
