National Award Recognition for Our Co-Director
Here at Make An Entrance we think that every single person who has contributed towards building our company is a superstar – and it seems we’re not the only ones!
Our very own co-director Samantha Burlton has been nominated as Northern England Business Woman of the Year at this year’s National Business Women’s Awards, and we couldn’t be more proud.
This is the third nomination that we’re celebrating this year. In October Sam was nominated for Business Person of the Year 2019. And Make An Entrance was also nominated in the Small Lincolnshire Business of the Year category at this year’s Lincolnshire Media Business Awards.
What are the National Business Women’s Awards?
Now in their third year, the National Business Women’s Awards honour business owners, leaders and inspirational business women across the UK who have achieved significant accomplishments over the past 12 months.
The 2019 awards are made up of 21 categories and this year’s awards ceremony will take place at the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in London on Thursday 12th December. Over 250 guests are expected to attend and on the night will be able to enjoy a drinks reception, as well as a three-course meal and entertainment.
Why has Sam been nominated?
Sam is an experienced and inspirational business leader who has always had an entrepreneurial flair. After leaving her previous job in 2004 to write her own business plan, Sam launched MakeAnEntrance.com in 2005. She has continued to build our company which has gone from strength to strength over the last 14 years.
Sam’s innovative ideas and determination to adapt in order to remain competitive have kept our business at the forefront of the flooring industry. We produce beautiful, traditional and high-quality doormats using time-honoured techniques.
What does it mean to be nominated?
It is an honour to have Sam shortlisted and recognised alongside the likes of businesswomen from Total Fitness, Crest Nicholson and Systematics International.
2019 has already been such a great year for our business; we opened our new Lincoln workshop and have taken on our first apprentices. It’s fantastic to be recognised for all the hard work that’s been put in to make the company a success.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us this week. We’ve got our party frocks ready and we’re looking forward to celebrating what should be a great night!
