Contents Welcome to the Scottish Enterprise Awards 2020 SME News proudly presents the return of our Northern Enterprise Awards, allowing us to reward the hardworking individuals and firms hailing from the region for their innovation and excellence in their business practice as well as their outstanding overall performance. Boasting bustling ports, a vibrant culture for media & the arts and venues of incredible natural beauty, northern England has proven to be an attractive region for a variety of businesses from traditional industries to cutting-edge enterprises; and all are welcome to compete for the chance to be recognised as the best within their sector, market or industry. The impact of COVID-19 has wreaked unprecedented upheaval and many in the business community are still getting to grips with the biggest peace-time crisis they’ve ever had to deal with. It has however, offered business leaders an opportunity to innovate and bring about permanent positive change and this is an incredibly exciting time to be nominated and get noticed.
