Finalists For MKBAA 2022 – Entrepreneur of the Year

The esteemed judging panel for Milton Keynes Business Achievement Awards 2022 has announced the finalists for this year’s awards taking place on 24 March at Stadium MK.

The theme for this year’s awards is ‘MK – Leading the UK’s Green Recovery – Survive, Revive & Thrive’ and many of the businesses and organisations who entered this year focused their submissions around this subject.

Chair of the judging panel, Anita Nadkarni, commented

The judging panel had a really tough job this year. There were so many excellent submissions that really show the breadth and depth of the business community in Milton Keynes. It was also humbling to see how many businesses had taken on board the environmental theme of this year’s awards, giving us all a positive outlook for the future.

The glittering awards ceremony will be hosted by broadcaster Tony Dibbin and this year’s influential Guest Speaker will be Wayne Hemingway MBE. The event will bring together the wider Milton Keynes business community for the first time in over two years and promises to celebrate success stories from across the city.

The announcement was made public on 11 February and the nominations were informed. Scott Jones, CEO of 123 Internet Group said:

It was a lovely surprise to hear the news and I was happy to have been selected alongside some of the other amazing local entrepreneurs in Milton Keynes. The past few years have been tough for many businesses and I am proud that we have done everything we could to help support the community, our team and our clients during the pandemic. The continued success and growth of 123 is down to the hard work of my team. It is my belief that an entrepreneur can only be successful with the support and encouragement of the team they surround themselves with.
