The firm, which is one of the UK’s leading, independently-owned accountancy, investment management, tax and financial advisory groups with around 200 people based at its office in central Bristol, has a dedicated technology and media team working closely with businesses of all sizes and at different stages of development.
Partner Jon Talbot said: “We have been associated with the Bristol Business Awards for several years and are delighted to have an opportunity to show our support for the technology and creative sectors in 2017. Bristol has developed an enviable reputation for its creativity, innovation and technological advances and we hope the awards will help to uncover more success stories.”
Jon continued: “With so many local businesses doing such interesting and important work, there is likely to be strong competition for this award. The judges are looking for an outstanding business that has developed a new and innovative product, service or design. They will be looking out for a clever business strategy, a determined leader and a motivated team. We know there are many businesses out there that fit the bill so we just hope they will take time out from their busy schedules to enter and enjoy the recognition they deserve.”
