Local enterprise and entrepreneurship was celebrated after a sweet year of success at the annual Enterprise Northern Ireland awards held in Belfast. The purpose of the awards is to showcase the work done by the Northern Ireland small business community and the efforts of the local enterprise agency network to support business development. Winners included the Exploring Enterprise Learner of the Year, Newry girl, Judith Watson, with the award being sponsored by The Open University. Judith participated in the Exploring Enterprise 2 Programme with Newry and Mourne Enterprise Agency earlier this year and shortly after established her foot health care business, Feet First. Hosted by broadcaster Sarah Travers, the keynote speaker was Junior Minister, Jonathan Bell, MLA and the event was supported by Legacy Wealth. Chief Executive of Enterprise NI, Gordon Gough, said, “Enterprise Northern Ireland is the voice of local entrepreneurship and we’re very pleased to celebrate great examples of local ingenuity and talent. “Helping to develop strong companies that create employment and export across the world is an important part of what we do. These awards are an excellent chance to recognise hard work and dedication of businesses and members of the ENI network,” he added. Exploring Enterprise Learner of the Year, Judith Watson, said, “I signed up for the Exploring Enterprise 2 course with Newry and Mourne Enterprise Agency and now my knowledge of running a business is much greater. The support offered to me through the Exploring Enterprise programme has been invaluable.”
