Hi everyone! Still buzzing with excitement after the Entrepreneur Wales Awards last night sponsored by Business Wales.
Last month I had a wonderful surprise in my inbox, informing me that I'd been nominated in the Creative Industries Category along with an invite to the awards ceremony being held at the Millennium Stadium! Being nominated was honour enough and it was such a pleasure last night to be surrounded by such talented and ambitious men and women who've built some fantastic businesses from scratch! Everyone nominated should incredibly proud of themselves, such a great achievement!
The inaugural Entrepreneur Wales Awards, produced by the organisers of the Great British Entrepreneur Awards and the publishers of Fresh Business Thinking, is a national celebration of entrepreneurship and has welcomed over 230 applications from businesses and entrepreneurs across Wales. There were many categories but the Creative Industries Entrepreneur of the Year 2015 award looks for an entrepreneur with an inspiring track record in combining creative flair with entrepreneurial ability. Their business will be making a significant contribution to the creative Welsh economy.
First of all, huge congratulations to Lisa of [Tobia Design](http://www.tobiadesign.com/) who was the winner of the Creative category and many congratulations to all the other winners and nominees! I'm extremely pleased to take home the runner up trophy and truly honoured to rub shoulders with such fantastic people!
