What excites you about the Suffolk economy?

The sheer diversity of businesses in Suffolk is very exciting. From the coast to the rural areas, historic market towns to innovation centres, and everything in between. We are well located with transport links to London, Cambridge and the rest of the UK, and of course there are the opportunities which Felixstowe provides with Europe. Businesses are working closely with education providers to promote the opportunities in the region, and to make sure our future workforce have the skills we need to continue to promote and grow Suffolk.

What does success look like to you?

Success is about working to achieve your goals, and inspiring others to do the same. To be successful you need to have a plan, which is measurable, and constantly under review. A successful business is one where the stakeholders have a plan and are focused on achieving their goals, developing their staff, and embracing the opportunities going forwards.

How does this award recognise the value of people within Suffolk businesses?

East Anglia has a broad economic base of successful family businesses and that’s why this category resonates with Larking 
Gowen. We’re proud to be an East Anglian firm with a rich history of working with precisely these sorts of businesses.
