Sparq team wins Yorkshire business of the year!

Leading Business media site The Business Deck, hosted their annual Yorkshire Business Master awards last week. The black-tie event saw 245 guests gather at the Queens Hotel in Leeds to celebrate an evening of some of Yorkshire's finest businesses.

Up against five other local businesses, Sparq scooped the award for Yorkshire's Medium-sized business of the year igniting an evening of celebration for the team.

Ben Ormsby, Yorkshire editor at said: "It’s been a fantastic evening celebrating the successes of Yorkshire’s business community, particularly after the challenges of the last 18 months."

"Myself and this year’s independent judging panel were really impressed by the quality of entries and in particular the commitment by businesses across the region to champion sustainability in every sector. Against the uncertain backdrop of the pandemic, it has been fantastic to see true Yorkshire grit on display alongside a real sense of community, with businesses from all sectors supporting each other in these unprecedented times."

"As we begin to see a new year on the horizon I’m pleased to hear that many Yorkshire businesses remain optimistic and are focused on not just surviving, but thriving through adaptability and innovation. Thanks to everybody who joined us this evening and from everyone at, we wish you all every success for the coming 12 months."

Our Head of Sparq, Elliott Moores led the celebrations: “The events industry has been hit hard by the pandemic and it was incredible to see how the team pivoted at immense speed to enable our client’s events to continue throughout last year. This is an amazing result and a fantastic cause – truly well deserved everyone!”

The night raised money for The Business Deck’s chosen charity of the year, Grimm & Co which supports under-resourced children and young people aged 7 to 18 with their confidence and skills around creativity and writing.
