Argos to move out of town centre

Have your say

A YOUNG entrepreneur from Petersfield has been named as one of three finalists in her category for the Inspire Business Awards 2012.

Helen McCusker, 29, founder of Petersfield-based agency Booked PR, is hoping to win Young Business Person of the Year.

Helen set up her book publicity agency in 2008 from her home in Waterlooville and has seen the business flourish during the recession.

She said: ‘Winning an Inspire Business Award would of course be incredible, but reaching the final is already a huge achievement for me and my company.’

The Inspire Business Awards highlight successful companies in north Hampshire, allowing business people to gain the recognition they deserve.

The Young Business Person of the Year category is sponsored by Hampshire County Council and will reward a business person under 30 years of age who has used their initiative to successfully operate in business and demonstrate entrepreneurial skills.

The winner will be revealed in November.
