Emma O’Brien, our founder of business transformation consultancy, Embridge Consulting, has been named ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at this year’s Growing Business Awards.
The awards, now in their 26th year, are the most credible and highly valued recognition of exceptional businesses and celebrate the strength, vision and resilience of fast-growing SMEs.
The biggest individual accolade, the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ category celebrates long-standing, established entrepreneurs with a track record of business success and excellence.
Emma, who founded Embridge Consulting in 2009, was recognised for her outstanding personal ambition and vision at a prestigious ceremony at Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, London on 29th November.
The achievement follows a period of sustained growth for Embridge, which has delivered 25 new digital change projects and secured eight new managed service clients, including, Surrey County Council and Islamic Relief over the last 12 months.
Emma O’Brien, founder and CEO of Embridge Consulting, commented: “I am absolutely honoured to be recognised with such a prestigious award, particularly in this category. I still pinch myself when I am referred to as being ‘an entrepreneur’! I feel like the luckiest girl in the world to get to do what I do.
None of this would be possible without the support of my fantastic team, who keep me motivated and in business with purpose every day. So, this award goes to my wonderful Embridge family. I thank them for their trust and commitment and for sharing my vision that we can deliver meaningful change for our customers with compassion. Also, I thank them for their innovative, passionate, and ambitious approach to providing our customers the best experience they can receive whilst simply being the most amazing team I could ever work with. The future is bright here at Embridge, and I am more motivated than ever to see what will come next.”
