Penny Weston shortlisted for the 2019 Staffordshire Chambers’ Business Awards

 It has just been announced that Midlands based Penny Weston of Moddershall Oaks and Welcome to MADE has been shortlisted for the 2019 Staffordshire Chambers’ Business Awards in the Entrepreneur of the Year category.

Penny Weston beat off some tough competition in order to make the regional shortlist, with hundreds of entries across the categories, resulting in a difficult task for the judging panel. Penny is the Director of Moddershall Oaks and last year opened a new wellness business called MADE offering memberships, classes, workshops, treatments, healthy food & gifts.

Staffordshire Chambers Chief Executive, Sara Williams, said: “It is great to see how the entries have developed and by far exceeded previous year’s in terms of quality. We see this as a testimony to the healthy state and award-winning potential of businesses within Staffordshire. I would like to thank the judges for their dedication to the task and the businesses who took the time to enter. Many congratulations to all of our finalists and commended businesses.”

The Steering Committee has now met to review all the entries with the objective of identifying a small number of shortlisted finalists for each category. This proved incredibly difficult, but after a full day of deliberation, the finalists were identified and can now be announced (see below). In addition, a large number of entries were commended by the committee, and all of these will receive framed certificates.

All finalists will be visited by the judging panels, with the winners announced at a gala awards evening at the Staffordshire County Showground on Thursday 4 July 2019. Over four hundred guests from across the county are anticipated, where they will enjoy a delicious meal and celebrate the achievements of the Staffordshire finalists.

‘I am so excited to have been selected as a finalist for my new business venture MADE. I was keen to bring a new wellness experience to the county, teaming up with the best fitness experts and offering a positive & accessible approach to healthy eating & exercise. I’m delighted to have been shortlisted for such a special award. I’ve been extremely proud of my work at Moddershall Oaks over the last 17 years from receptionist to Director, so starting this new chapter with the creation of my new business MADE is very exciting.’

The Staffordshire Business Awards celebrate successful entrepreneurs and businesses across the country and the 2019 winners will be announced at a gala awards evening at the Staffordshire Country Showground on 4thJuly.
