Phil Bates wins Entrepreneur of the Year at Halifax Courier Business Awards

On Friday evening Phil Bates, of Hebden Bridge-based Zikodrive Motor Controllers, was awarded the Entrepreneur of the Year at the Halifax Courier Business Awards.

The 12th annual awards were held at the fantastically decorated The Venue in Barkisland, Halifax and hosted by BBC Look North newsreader, Harry Gration.

Phil saw off fierce competition in the category from Hayley Jennings of Northern Hair Loss Clinic and Razan Alsous of Yorkshire Dama Cheese.

All the evening’s winners, along with a full write up and pictures, can be found in a dedicated supplement in this Friday’s Halifax Courier.

As sponsors of the Entrepreneur of the Year category, Vizulate Digital was in attendance at the black-tie event along with our clients, Elland-based The Flood Company, VergoUK based in Sowerby Bridge, and Ventas Sales of Huddersfield.

It was great to see and hear about so many Calderdale businesses being recognised for their hard work, particularly businesses right on our doorstep in Brighouse.
