Commenting on the 2013 awards, awards judge, host and NEN Chairman Paul McEldon, said; “I am proud to have been able to recognise such outstanding achievements from National Enterprise Network members in this year’s National Enterprise Network Awards. The impact of these organisations is clear to see and, with over 225 delegates at today's conference, more enterprise support professionals than ever before were able to join us in congratulating the 2013 award winners for the successful projects and initiatives that have taken place over the last year. Well done and thank you to the hard working teams and individuals in the network membership for their dedication in supporting pre-start and start-up clients across the country.”
