Wiltshire Business Awards – ain't no mountain high enough!

It was a special start to a special year for the Wiltshire Business Awards, organised by Newsquest and sponsored by Thrings. Delivering a motivating speech to the many companies who turned up to learn about the awards was Wiltshire-born explorer Sir David Hempleman-Adams, who likened the road to business success to some of his toughest and most rewarding expeditions.

Speaking to the Swindon Advertiser, Thrings partner and awards judge Gemma Featonby said: “Every year we are bowled over by what the region has to offer and we welcome applications from all kinds of businesses to show off the wonderful things happening across the county.

“We visit some brilliant companies that we might never have heard of otherwise. All are really different, but they all have something special.”
