It's time to tell the world: you can thrive in Lincolnshire

Santander has sponsored Lincolnshire Business Week, the first of its kind in the county. The event highlighted the achievements of the county's best companies, and offered the opportunity for local firms to access networking possibilities, free workshops and the LEP Business Live conference. The main attraction for the week was the Lincolnshire Media Business Awards, which was attended by 450 people as gongs were handed out in 12 categories. The keynote speech at the awards was delivered by Siemens head of manufacturing Steve Middlebrough, who praised local companies and spoke of his pride at being a part of the Lincolnshire business community, but he warned that the region remains relatively unknown domestically and internationally. He urged local firms to broadcast themselves beyond local areas. Santander was celebrating the opening of a new commercial office in Cornhill, which gives the bank four outlets in the region, employing 50 people. Nick Pulley, regional director (East Midlands) for Santander, said: 'We are delighted to be involved. Lincoln and Lincolnshire feels like a vibrant place to be. 'Our research suggests East Midlands businesses are among the most positive in the UK.'
