Finalists for the 7th English Asian Business Awards 2018 have been announced after nominations have rolled in from across the country.
The English Asian Business Awards seek to acknowledge and honour the determination,
entrepreneurial spirit and hard work of English Asian businessmen and businesswomen at the
forefront of their industries and their significant contributions to their respective business sectors.
The event is run by Oceanic Consulting, the UK’s leading ethnic consulting and promotions
organisation in the UK, who were shortlisted at the Asian Media Awards 2017 for their work in the
Marketing & PR Sector, and are responsible for some of the most successful and well known events
in the country such as The English Curry Awards and the British Muslim Awards amongst others.
They are also responsible for the Scottish Asian Business Awards which is now in its 13th year as well
as launching the London Asian Business Awards last year which were a massive success.
Irfan Younis, CEO of Oceanic Consulting said: “The English Asian Business Awards continue to grow with more and more categories added every year showcasing just how notable the achievements of the Asian business community are in the current financial climate and this is exactly why we think it is so important to hold this awards ceremony and ensure deserving individuals and businesses are recognised.”
The evening also helped raise funds for Oceanic Well, a fundraising initiative by the Well Foundation.
The Well Foundation’s primary aim is to raise money in order to install hand pumps and deep bore
wells and establish health and sanitation programmes and ultimately provide safe, clean drinking
water for all.
