Chris Dowling Business Mentor achieves Runner Up in this years’ Uckfield Business Awards

I was delighted to be amongst the finalists at last Thursday’s Uckfield Business Awards gala evening.

Chris Dowling, Uckfield Business Award finalist

The bi-annual event was held at the East Sussex National Hotel, Uckfield with over 300 guests attending.

There were 15 different categories,  covering a wide range of business sizes, types and people. I was pleased to be one of the three finalists in the ‘Business Person of the Year- Male’ category. It was great to be nominated back in the summer and then to be short-listed a few weeks ago as a finalist for the award.

The recognition for me,  my business and the business mentoring and support services I offer was great – quite literally in the spotlight in front of local businesses.

Unfortunately, although I didn’t win – that honour went to Kevin Markwick, owner of Uckfield’s well known and independent cinema, The Picture House – I am very pleased to be a runner-up and to receive a certificate.

It was an enjoyable evening and a great advert, showcasing Uckfield businesses and their diversity and success stories.

Thanks to the organisers for a glittering and enjoyable evening: Uckfield Chamber of Commerce, Uckfield FM and The Marketing Eye.
