Nominations for the Exeter Power 50 2013 have opened. The new awards aim to recognise the city’s individuals who are dedicated to Exeter through their work in the business, community, creative arts or sports sectors. Nominations are invited from colleagues, clients and communities. With over 80 nominations already received, the nomination window closes on 15 October 2013.
The Exeter Power 50 will celebrate the exploits, innovation and entrepreneurship of those individuals who have helped to power the reputation, economic, social and cultural success of the city.
From nominations across five categories, 50 people will be identified as having in some way, influenced or made contributions to the greater well being of the city. There will be five category winners, with one person being awarded the Power 50 ‘City’s Most Influential Award’ for their extensive efforts.
