ABN celebrates local business successes with awards event

Aberdeen networking firm ABN has celebrated another year of business success in the region with its 7th annual awards ceremony.

The ABN Business Awards 2019 honoured achievements of the organisation’s members over the past 12 months.

Boasting more than 7,000 members in its ranks, ABN gives local companies a platform to connect with each other through its ABNCommunity online resource and through more than 20 face-to-face networking events each year in the city. Companies linked through the firm’s website have won more than £20 million worth of business.

Tess Day, of Mindblox, picked up the Best Overall Member prize at the event which was held at the 8848 Nepalese restaurant on Aberdeen’s Union Street.

Kayleigh Paterson, of the Gathimba Edwards Foundation, was named the Best Charity Member and Adam Bell, of The Moment Agencies, received the award for Best Online Member, while psychologist Gordon Charlton was named Best Offline Member.

Around 40 people attended the event and saw Mark Thouless and James Allan, both of Fluxtastic, named as the Best Contact Builder and the Best Ten Groups Member, respectively.

ABNCommunity director Andrew Smith said: “The annual awards event allows us all the opportunity to reflect on just how much we have all achieved in the past 12 months. It is a delight to bring together so many great people and businesses through the power of networking.”
