A host of Marketing Derby Bondholders have been shortlisted for awards, organised by East Midlands Chamber, which recognise the region’s young talent.

The nominations for the Generation Next Awards 2022 have recently been announced, with a number of Bondholders featuring on the shortlists.

Held in conjunction with headline partner the University of Derby, the awards recognise young professionals and business leaders aged under 35, as well as organisations led by people in this demographic.

Among the nominees for the Future Leader Award is Matilda Swanson, from Loates HR and Dan Heffernan, from the D2N2 Local Enterprise Partnership.

Alphageek is shortlisted for the Breakthrough Award and is also nominated for the Entrepreneur of the Year title, where it is joined by Adam Bamford, of Colleague Box.

In the Customer Service Award category Arran Gessey, of Bam Boom Cloud receives a nomination, as does Ruby Birks, of Purpose Media, in the Apprentice of the Year category.

Meanwhile, Fred Gough, from the University of Derby, is a finalist for the Diversity & Inclusion Award.

Finally, Jack Hall, of Scenariio, is up for two awards – the Excellence in Innovation and Technology Award and the Sustainability Award.

A virtual judging day will now take place in which finalists will be interviewed by members of the chamber’s senior management team, the Generation Next board and a representative of the sponsor.

The winners will then be crowned at a ceremony to be held at Bustler Market, in Derby, on 14 July.

Lucy Robinson, East Midlands Chamber’s director of resources and Generation Next lead, said: “The Generation Next Awards are a celebration of the rising stars of business who make outstanding contributions to their communities.

“We received some brilliant applications from a diverse breadth of individuals, and our shortlist of finalists offers a glimpse into the amazing young talent that exists here in the East Midlands.”
