Service Business Support Lead wins top UK honour

March 13 2018

I’m delighted to have been selected as the winner of the legal category. To have been featured on the top 50 list of recognised business support leaders was already such an honour and this now is such a huge achievement. This is a very proud moment for me and the Service, as it shows just how well regarded our work is amongst those within the business sector.

John Berrisford, Business Support Lead

Enterprise Nation’s competition, which was powered by Experian, created the list of top Business Support Leads and set out to recognise those who provide support behind the scenes to ensure Britain's businesses get the best start and achieve their growth potential. 

John was selected from hundreds of entries from around the UK to be on the top 50 list and has now won the top spot in the Legal category. He was announced as his categories winner at ceremony in London on March 12 where he was presented with a certificate. 

John Berrisford, Business Support Lead, said: “I’m delighted to have been selected as the winner of the legal category. To have been featured on the top 50 list of recognised business support leaders was already such an honour and this now is such a huge achievement. This is a very proud moment for me and the Service, as it shows just how well regarded our work is amongst those within the business sector. 

“My role within the Service has involved me working closely with hundreds of businesses around the county, helping them understand and implement their fire safety responsibilities, providing them with guidance and support along the way. 

“We have put a lot of work in and to have it recognised by the public, who have voted, is a real honour.”
