East Yorkshire People in Business Awards!

We are proud to announce that our Managing Director and MD of HiViz Safety, Cliff Dick, has been shortlisted for the 2019 Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards. 

The award will be for Innovator of the Year. Beating all the other competition to make the shortlist. It is amazing for Cliff to be recognised in this category. 

The Innovator of the Year award recognises someone who has continuously strived to change, improve and innovate operations. By actively keeping ahead in trends, finding solutions to problems and embracing changes or risks. Cliff is one of just three individuals to be shortlisted for the award! 

"I'm absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted for an award at the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards, especially in the category for innovation,"

"I knew I had something new, exciting and useful when I came up with and developed the idea of HiViz Safety but to be recognised for it in the form of an award nomination is something I never expected. I'm really looking forward to sharing the evening with my family and colleagues and to meeting fellow nominees from all the award categories."

Cliff has decades of experience as a Health and Safety Consultant. His experience has helped him in with the development of his innovative 'Do-It-Yourself' Health and Safety software.

Jo Flemming, the founder of the Hull and East Yorkshire People in Business Awards, has said: 

“There have been some outstanding entries from businesses of all shapes and sizes, and everyone who entered should be really proud of themselves.

Narrowing down the shortlist was a difficult task, but we believe that we’ve chosen the best of the best that have the potential to be worthy award winners.

Supporting talent in the workplace is essential, and the Hull & East Yorkshire People in Business Awards give both individuals and businesses as a whole the chance to gain recognition for their hard work.”

Now that Cliff has been shortlisted he will now be judged, along with the others shortlisted, by a panel of high-profile local business people. These judges have been selected because of their wealth of experience in their chosen industry.
