Winter Awards Flurry

Buzz, November 17, 2015

The snow might not be falling just yet, but there’s been a flurry of award nominations at Plan Bee Ltd this week.

Plan Bee has been nominated for the prestigious ‘Excellence in Enterprise Mentoring Awards’ by the Mentorsme network, which is an online gateway for small and medium sized companies looking for guidance through the choppy waters of the first few years of trading. The Motherwell-based company was nominated in the busy Export & Innovation category.

The awards bring together businesses and mentors from across the UK to showcase their achievements and celebrate the power of enterprise. Plan Bee, was mentored by Mike Lees, the former managing Director of Tennents Caledonian Breweries.

The company has received great support and advice from many of its partnership businesses in beehive management. These range from small family run businesses to global household names the likes of Highland Spring, Kellogg’s and L’Oreal. Plan Bee has also received great support from Scottish Enterprise and the Scottish Chambers of Commerce (SCC).

Liz Cameron, Chief Executive of SCC said:

“Plan Bee is buzzing with excitement, enthusiasm and energy. Their novel approach to business not only aims to grow a profitable and ethical business, but also works to increase awareness of the importance of bees to the world’s ecosystem. I’m proud Business Mentoring was added to Plan Bee’s “magic formula,” enabling further growth for the business. I know they are paving a strong and successful future in their entrepreneurial journey.”

Plan Bee has also received a plethora of award nominations from the Free2Network Business Awards, with nomination in the categories of Corporate Social Responsibility, Green Business of the Year and Businessman of the Year.

“It’s great to receive all these nominations, but we’re not ones to rest on our laurels here at Plan Bee. Most importantly these awards help to raise awareness on our work, they help to promote our efforts to protect and preserve dwindling honeybee numbers; and most importantly to talk to other like-minded businesses so that we can develop important sustainability networks. We are honoured to receive these nominations and are crossing our fingers ahead of the awards night.”
