About the awards

The LincolnshireLive Business Awards, in partnership with the Lincolnshire Chamber of Commerce, returns for the 18th year to toast success, celebrate achievement and honour the innovative and resilient businesses doing great things right here in Lincolnshire.

It gives companies of all sizes, from pioneering start-ups to the powerhouses which drive the region’s economy – a chance to be recognised and proud of the work they do. The categories represent businesses from all sectors and industries, from technology and innovation to green energy and construction. And it’s not just businesses which are celebrated. The Business Awards also recognise individual talent, whether you are an entrepreneur who has launched a business and grown it successfully, or a star employee who has stood out from all others.

He now has over 2 million followers online, has gained 1 Billion views! and as a result has appeared on shows such as, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.
