Lathwell presents business award

Our own Andrew Lathwell had the great pleasure and honour of presenting the Outstanding Award in Business Studies to Gabrielle Resende last night, at Petroc's annual awards ceremony.

Andrew was representing the Business Forum Mid Devon, which sponsored the award. He said, 'Everyone in business understands how important it is to nurture and attract young talent in order to grow business, but also to stabilise and enrich the local social and economic fabric of a district. '

With the arrival of the Met Office's supercomputer, the opening of Science Park, the expansion of the University of Exeter, along with the pending major construction projects at Hinkley, Taunton and Junction 27, Mid Devon is surrounded by unprecedented potential. So, we're very proud to be associated with a forward-thinking college which is working closely with the business sector to help its students put themselves in the best position to capitalise on these exciting opportunities.'
