Celebrating the top SME Businesses in Scotland

Mon, 2017-03-13 12:37

With fierce competition in Scotland’s SME Businesses, top finalists for the inaugural Scottish SME Business Awards presented by Suj Legha Action Coach are announced.

The Crowne Plaza Hotel in Glasgow will play host to the inaugural Scottish SME Business Awards presented by Suj Legha Action Coach which endeavours to show appreciation for those within the Scottish SME industry.

Michael Harkins, Founder & CEO of Turtle Pack has been shortlisted in the ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year’ category.  Michael will find out if he has been named winner at the glamorous ceremony being held on March 13 in Glasgow.


“It is a great honour to be shortlisted for the Young Entrepreneur of the Year award. Scotland is bursting with so much innovation and I am very proud that my work with Turtle Pack has been recognised nationally.”


“Turtle Pack is a multi-award winning flotation device designed to help children learn to swim effectively. As the child’s confidence and coordination improves in the water the buoyancy can be easily reduced.”


“As a swimming advocate and budding entrepreneur I desire to integrate Turtle Pack into swimming lessons all across the country and one day the world. I want to emphasise that swimming is so much more than a sport, but a lifelong skill which could inspire a nation to a healthier and safer future.”


The inaugural Scottish SME Business Awards aim to recognise a wide range of achievements that SME enterprises have offered in this country. The awards attracted hundreds of nominations from the Scottish public, who recognised the achievements of Scottish individuals and businesses.

Irfan Younis event organisers of Creative Oceanic said: “We are delighted by the support we have had from the Scottish public who have voted for their favourites to show them the appreciation they deserve.  The awards aim to celebrate individuals and businesses that contribute in the Scottish SME industry. We wish all the finalists the best of luck.”

In addition, the awards support the Well Foundation to fundraise for a worthwhile cause and for another time people will be able to respond with generosity to the calls of help.
