The awards ceremony, held at the Somerset County Cricket Ground in Taunton, was attended by nearly 300 people and was a sell-out event.
Michael Turner the ambitious teenager who built his first website at just 11, left Kings of Wessex school in Cheddar at 16 with eight GCSE’s, to start his own business. TurnKey I.T Solutions is an IT support and consultancy company, working with clients of all sizes both regionally and nationally, to ensure their IT systems are optimised and yet still cost efficient.
Michael said “I’m very pleased and feel honoured to be presented with this award. It just shows that young people can achieve their goal in life, with enthusiasm and hard work. I think it’s brilliant that the Somerset Chamber of Commerce run this event and reward those that have the dedication and commitment to move their businesses forward despite the current economic challenges”
Michael hopes that with this prestigious endorsement TurnKey I.T Solutions will continue to grow. Michael recently launched Staff Guardian which allows business owners and managers to ensure their lone workers safety (www.StaffGuardian.com).
Michael has recently been selected from a list of over 500 entrepreneurs to speak at this year’s inaugural “Entrepreneur’s Exhibition”(www.thee2live.com) where 80 of the country’s top entrepreneurs will speak to an audience in excess of 10,000 fledgling enterprises and ensure the British SME sector remains one of the world’s strongest and most innovative.
