We’re absolutely delighted to have been shortlisted for three awards at the upcoming Amazing Wearside Awards!

The inaugural event was established last year by The Konect Group, who wanted to celebrate the efforts of nine Wearside businesses, individuals and community projects that are helping to put Sunderland on the map.

Following on from the success of last year’s event, the range of categories has been expanded for 2016 to recognise a wider range of local people and businesses. New categories include Medium Business of the Year, Online Business of the Year, Family Business of the Year, Independent Business of the Year and Young Entrepreneur of the Year.

Shine Interview are finalists in no less than three categories – Small Business of the Year, New Business of the Year, and for David, our CEO, Entrepreneur of the Year.

This recognition of our growing success is testament to the hard work and dedication of the whole team since launching in 2015 and shows just how much has been achieved within that time.

Shine is currently being used by a number of key customers within the North East where our HQ is based as well as by global businesses too, with interviews already being conducted across four different continents. The North East is home to many contact centres, a sector of significant growth for Shine.

This year’s Amazing Wearside Awards will be held on 29th September at The Point in Sunderland. The winners from each category will be announced during a gala dinner.
