Business award for Angelic Bridal

ANGELIC Bridal were named as the winners of the Banbridge Business Champion award at this year’s Get Up and Grow Business Conference.

Delivered by the SEED Consortium of Councils (Armagh, Banbridge, Craigavon and Newry and Mourne) businesses from Armagh, Banbridge, Craigavon and Newry & Mourne Council areas heard from a variety of speakers, including keynote speaker Dame Mary Peters, Olympic & Commonwealth Gold Medallist, with an inspirational message of what it takes to win in an incredibly competitive environment.

Commenting on the Business Awards, Elaine McAlinden Enterprise Development Officer at Banbridge District Council said, “We are delighted to see so many local businesses attend the conference and I have no doubt the calibre of speakers played a key role in the success of the conference. I would also like to congratulate Roisin McAleenan, whose business Angelic Bridal received the award as the ‘Banbridge Business Champion’.”

Commenting on the conference and awards Simon Devlin from organisers Full Circle Management Solutions explained, “This conference has been about celebrating business success in the SEED region. We had over 150 owner-managers of local businesses here today and I think that they certainly left inspired by listening to our guest speakers who are all leaders in the fields of business and of sport.”
