Have you met our Rising Stars?

The ceda Rising Star Award is a highlight of the ceda Conference.

Any member of a ceda Member’s staff with less than five years’ experience in their current role can be nominated by their employer for the Award.

The objective is to recognise and reward an individual’s outstanding achievement and contribution to the development of a ceda Member company.

The awards are independently judged and from the entries received, they shortlisted five young people who have made a significant impact on a Members’ business.

Justin Ring, Team Leader at Gratte Brothers Catering Equipment Limited, was the eventual winner and was crowned at the ceda Grand Prix Awards and Gala Dinner on Thursday 8th June.

We took some time to meet each of those shortlisted and find out their thoughts on the ceda Conference and the Future of the Industry…

N.B. Rosie Neary, Project Administrator / Office Manager at Catering Design Group was originally shortlisted for the 2023 ceda Rising Star Award. Due to unforeseen circumstances, Rosie was unable to attend the ceda Conference and her interview with the judges and so she has automatically been put on to the shortlist for the 2024 Award.
