Our Managing Director, Azeem Yaqoob, set up i3MEDIA in his spare room just 12 years ago, and while the nomination was flattering, he was far too modest to believe that he could win.
On the night, our team – usually found in hoodies and jeans – dusted off their finest and dressed to the nines in tuxedos and cocktail dresses; this was going to be a night to remember.
We are incredibly proud to announce that not only did we beat off the competition to take home the accolade of Peterborough’s Small Business of the Year 2016, but Azeem was also recognised for his efforts in steering i3MEDIA towards all the success we have achieved, receiving the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award personally.
A few words from the main man, himself:
“It’s great to gain local recognition for the work we are doing to improve the visibility of businesses within Peterborough and Cambridgeshire, but I am delighted that the team has been able to pick up two awards on the night. Being recognised in such a way gives the team - and myself - the motivation to continue supporting local businesses in the way that we do.
“Our focus has not always been just local; our work with national and international brands has given us the experience to help support business growth in Peterborough, allowing companies to avoid the mistakes which can be so costly at this stage of growth.”
“We are delighted that our commitment to support organisations such as Peterborough City Council and Opportunity Peterborough - along with online businesses in the city - has been so well received.”
Of course, it’s not all about the winning – but it’s the sheer calibre of the work that we do that got us to this point. A great night was had by all, and we were all back in the office on Monday morning, ready to deliver the same high-quality work we know and love.
