Broadland Wineries was the winner of the inaugural Top 100 Accelerator Award in 2015.

1. Why have you chosen to support the EDP Business Awards and in particular your chosen category?

We really value the opportunity to work in the local business community through sponsorship of the Top 100 programme. The EDP Business Awards are a firm fixture in the calendar and celebrate the best of Norfolk and Suffolk enterprise. The awards recognise the achievements and the important contribution that local businesses are making to the UK economy.

The Top 100 Accelerator award celebrates innovation and leadership - key attributes required for businesses to grow and adapt to changing customer needs. We know that growth is at the top of many CEOs agendas too. The UK findings from the PwC 2016 global CEO survey showed that more than eight in 10 (84%) of UK CEOs are confident in their own company’s prospects for revenue growth in the year ahead, with one-third of them saying they are very confident.

2. What makes a stand out entrant?

One that can demonstrate agility and has adapted quickly to meet new challenges. It’s not necessarily about big changes, sometimes it is a small action or adaptation that can make all the difference in a growth journey.

3. How does this category contribute to the Norfolk growth story?

The Accelerator award is drawn exclusively from the Top 100 which has seen a number of new entrants this year. While this demonstrates that the market is recovering, it also points to those companies that are responding most quickly to market opportunities and accelerating both revenues and profitability.
