SME Business of the Year, Sponsored by Esprit Group



" Esprit are proud to sponsor the GMCC Business Awards, in particular the award for SME Business of the Year. As a small business owner myself, who’s built the company from scratch and grown it over 24 years, I fully understand the challenges entrepreneurs face, from small daily decisions to massive life & game-changing decisions. So reading about & helping to recognise fellow successful entrepreneurs is a very rewarding process for me.

Being an active member of GMCC has introduced me to numerous avenues of support, including advice, information & contacts whilst attending events, through to insights into government policy which may affect my business decisions and also provides the ability to feedback information to government policy makers. Being one of the sponsors for these awards is a small opportunity to repay the benefits we reap from our membership and the members. " - Graham Dixon, Managing Director

At Salford Professional Development (SPD), we specialise in providing training programmes to enhance professional skills for middle management through to senior executives from commercial, governmental, and not-for-profit organisations, delivering training to over 9,000 clients each year.

With a whole host of courses on offer in areas including Leadership and Management, Director Level, Coaching & Mentoring, Healthcare, Marketing and Digital we are committed to helping delegates learn new skills to keep up with the changing demands of the workplace and gain valuable qualifications.
