Once again The Entrepreneurial Exchange Annual Dinner and Awards returned to the Glasgow Hilton to honour entrepreneurs who are helping to reshape the culture of Scotland through the success of their businesses.
Just over 700 entrepreneurs and supporters squeezed into the ballroom to enjoy fabulous food and entertainment provided by the inimitable John Morgan, the chairman for the evening, Clive James and a special 'Only a Banking Excuse' video featuring some of Jonathan Watson's well known football personalities and one or two new faces from the world of The Entrepreneurial Exchange.
The Entrepreneurial Exchange Entrepreneur of the Year awards entered their sixth year and the high standard set in previous years was maintained. The winners were:
- Entrepreneur of the Year - Sam Russell MBE of Simclar International Holdings
- Emerging Entrepreneur of the Year - Professor Sir David Lane of Cyclacel
- Entrepreneurial Supporter of the Year - Nelson Gray of Gap Fund Managers
The Entrepreneurial Exchange Award for Exceptional Achievement was presented to Ann Gloag.
Our thanks as ever go to Bank of Scotland Corporate Banking, the evening's main sponsor, to PricewaterhouseCoopers and The Herald, sponsors of the Entrepreneur of the Year awards and to Hilton Glasgow for providing the perfect setting for the highlight of the Scottish business calendar.
