After postponing last year’s event due to COVID-19, the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards (HEYPIBA) is back and will be taking place on Friday 9 July.
Filmed at Bridlington Spa, the awards will take place virtually with all the excitement and anticipation of the incredible inaugural sold-out event in 2019.
Jo Fleming, entrepreneur and awards founder said;
“I’m pleased to bring HEYPIBA back for another year. We had an amazing sell out the first event that celebrated a wide range of talented individuals within our region and we hope to celebrate them once more on an even larger scale this year.”
HEYPIBA recognises and rewards individuals and team talent in all industries across Hull, East Yorkshire and East Riding, giving the region’s biggest and brightest the chance to support and raise the profile of talented, hardworking and dynamic individuals.
Jo continued: “We are placing a huge emphasis on the people in the area who continue to innovate and drive the business forward, something that’s even more important during these testing times.
“With a brand new ‘Judges Award’ – celebrating a team or individual that has shown exceptional leadership skills, empathy and forward-thinking during the pandemic – we feel it’s a time to thank and reward people during such an incredibly difficult environment.
“HEYPIBA 2021 will be screened via an immersive, engaging platform where we can celebrate and appreciate those achievements. I look forward to virtually celebrating with the winners once again!”
Emma Waudby of Cobus Communications – one of the event sponsors – said: “We are delighted to continue our support during these unprecedented times, following what was a fantastic inaugural event in 2019.
“We once again have chosen the Team Impact award as we believe generating the right culture with the right team is a vital part of being successful.
“We are looking forward to celebrating the achievements of local businesses and those who have really made a difference in what has been a challenging year.”
Award categories range from innovator and rising star to the inspiring contribution, mentor and team impact. To nominate visit: www.heypibawards.com. Nominations are due to close on 21 May.
