Training awards winners


Preci Spark, Blue Flame (Cornwall) Ltd and Cornwall Council were among the winners at the 2012 Excellence in Business Training Awards.

The fifth annual Excellence in Business Training Awards, hosted by Cornwall College Business, recognise exceptional training and development in organisations across the south west, who develop their staff through training and who have seen exceptional business successes a result.

The awards ceremony, hosted at the Atlantic Hotel in Newquay, was a night to celebrate the achievements of both individuals and businesses.

This year saw the first individual scoop the Winner of Winners Award. Ben Moran from Pall Corporation was recognised as Apprentice of the Year and then went on to become the overall winner in a category usually awarded to a business.

Dave Linnell, CEO of Cornwall College, opened the evening and congratulated all nominees on their success. “The standard of nominations this year was exceptional,” he said.

“The winners deserve particular praise for being recognised as the best in their category. It’s been a wonderful night of entertainment and celebrations and I’ve been humbled to be part of it. Congratulations to all the shortlisted companies and individuals and to our winners tonight.”
