The South’s biggest radio station, Wave 105, was proud to take part in the development of emerging young business talent, by sponsoring the Sales Person of the Year Award 2015, at the Enterprise Challenge Celebrations organised by the Enterprise and Skills Company.

The Sales Person of the Year Award, which commends selling skills and talent, was presented to India Doyle by Jon Brooks, commercial director at Wave 105. The awards were held at the Life Centre in Bournemouth.

Jon said: “We couldn’t have been more delighted to award India with Sales Person of the Year. Her work both as an individual and as part of her team was inspiring, and demonstrated a true dedication to the art of pitching, selling and creating a buzz towards her teams’ products.”

He added: “The event was superb. With the quality of work and pitching skills of each shortlisted team, competition was tense, but there was a great sense of team spirit too.”

The annual Enterprise Challenge Celebrations, sponsored by Bournemouth University, and hosted by the Enterprise and Skills Company, aim to encourage and promote entrepreneurship and business skills within young people across Dorset.

Students were tasked with selling their own goods, and learning about the complexities of running a small business, from the boardroom to the selling stand.
