November 7 promises to be a night of suprises and delight for the finalists of this year's EDP Business Awards as the winners are unveiled.

And there is also an extra surprise in store on the night as the winner of the Denise Anderson Award for outstanding achievement is revealed.

Sponsored by Anglian Water, the award was created in memory of the former director of Business Link who died tragically in 2003.

Last year's winner was Peter Wilson, chief executive of Norwich Theatre Royal in recognition of a 20 year career during which he has overseen the transformation of the venue from a nearly derelict building into a centre piece for theatre and the arts.

Previous winners have included Bill Jordan, Robert Carter, Mike Kimberley, and Delia Smith.

Peter Simpson, managing director of Anglian Water, said: 'Anglian Water is delighted to be sponsoring the Business Awards once again. These may be difficult economic times, but the success recognised by the EDP Business Awards is a welcome reminder that we live and work in a creative, vibrant and high-achieving region. It's vital that we recognise this success, as it inspires us all to achieve more, contributing to the sustainable growth we need to deliver while economic recovery remains fragile.

'Awards like this also allow us to share new ideas across the business network in our region, providing invaluable support for start-ups and established enterprises alike. We want this region to be a national leader in areas such as developing the green economy, and providing practical solutions in the development of low-carbon and environmental goods and services. These awards showcase the very best our region has to offer, and we should be proud of what they have come to symbolise over more than two decades.'
