The launch of the Thames Gateway Business Awards 2016, which will showcase the best in business across East London, was held on Friday.

“The guest speakers covered everything from advice on how to set up a new business to the impact Brexit could have on the country and wider Europe.

“I’m sure the tips on how to make your awards entry count will really help you get the best out of the awards.”
