the Event

Making employees feel recognised and appreciated is one of the best ways to boost morale and keep your workplace environment positive and productive. There are approximately 25,000 businesses in the Humber Region providing over 400,000 jobs, and we would like to celebrate the most exceptional young employees locally.

The Top 30 Under 30 event gives companies in the Humber region the opportunity to celebrate their emerging talent by nominating top employees under 30 years of age.

Organisations based locally now have the opportunity to nominate young, talented professionals within their business.

What does winning a
Top 30 Under 30 award
mean for your

Winners of our Top 30 Under 30 Award will leave our event with more than a trophy and certificate.

To continue the celebration of their achievements and give them the chance to socialise with like minded dynamic young business people, all winners will be invited to a variety of entertaining activities held throughout the year.

All Top 30 nominees shortlisted for awards are welcome to attend our congratulatory drinks reception in February to meet their fellow nominees ahead of the awards evening. This will be an informal event for nominees to learn more about the main awards event and get involved with some pre-event activities.

Winners will be invited to an informative communications training afternoon to hone their skills and improve their performance in the workplace.

We will also host an exciting fundraising activity across the summer months for everyone to get involved, have fun and raise money for charity. The activities will vary each year and could include everything from abseiling to fun runs.

Our winners from previous years will be given exclusive access to exciting new Top 30 events and the chance to offer mentoring and advice to new members, helping to improve the knowledge of the best young business minds in the Hull and Humber area, and the opportunity to continue to network with a continually growing number of high achieving business men and women.


The process is simple; to give your colleague the chance to win our Top 30 Under 30 award, all you need to do is explain to us why they deserve to win.
