“To be shortlisted by the prestigious NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards is so exciting, especially in the highly contested Entrepreneur of the Year category, and then to hear that I have been selected from a huge international pool of applicants for The Big 5 to speak about how to win construction bids is just incredible – it is such an achievement for Purpol Marketing that our expertise is now internationally recognised,” said Denise.
