Give and Take for Gary
Co-Director of Congleton-based Prism Total IT Solutions, Gary Smith has been shortlisted in the North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards in the Young Entrepreneur of the Year category in the year that celebrates Prism’s tenth year in business.
The judging panel for the awards is chaired by EN Magazine editor Stuart Anderson and includes the newest dragon in the den, Hilary Devey along with Gerald Ratner, Joe Morris and Tony Wilson. Hilary Devey is the guest speaker at the awards evening at Mere Golf and Country Club on the 27th October, with Christine and Neil Hamilton co-hosting the event.
News of Gary’s shortlist success came as Prism committed to sponsorship of the Business of the Year Award for Cheshire Silk 106.9’s Local Hero Awards this year. As Prism was last year’s winner of the award Gary was keen to give something back by sponsoring the award for another local business to be rewarded for their contribution to the community.
The Local Hero Awards are now in their thirtieth year and will once again be held at Macclesfield Town FC on November 18th. The awards celebrate the good work that local people do for the community and 11 awards are presented during a fantastic evening of entertainment. Nominations can be made via the website www.silk106.9.com from the launch date of Monday 3rd October.
Commenting on the announcement of his place in the awards shortlist Gary said “I’m very pleased to be recognised at a regional level and wish all the finalists in the North West Entrepreneur of the Year Awards the best of luck.”
