The NEN Awards were established in 2007 to recognise excellence in the delivery of business support, encouraging the exchange of good practice and the development of improved services.
MENTA who work with established businesses and start-ups based in Suffolk and Norfolk were recognised for their entrepreneurial approach to networking events, business skills masterclasses and workshops. They were praised for their marketing communications and the high standard of customer service to their clients and stakeholders.
Alistair Ponder, Chair of MENTA said, “On Behalf of the Board I’d like to salute the work of our Chief Executive, AlexTill and his team at MENTA. It’s due to their energy, creative thought processes and the sound delivery of business advice and training that MENTA has been recognised nationally as an innovative business support agency. MENTA may be a not for profit organisation however, it is run on sound business principles which has ensured the growth and ongoing success of this 34-year-old social enterprise.”
Alex Till commented, “This is a wonderful accolade which we simply didn’t expect. My team are delighted, we work hard helping and supporting the business community with subsidised business skills training, advice, events and networking opportunities and to be acknowledged as a market leader in our field is fantastic.
“We’re extremely grateful to our Patrons and Stakeholders whose continued financial support has made a huge difference to the varied services we now provide.
“We have further plans to enhance the services we deliver during 2019 and the award is a great boost.”
