The New Media Company, which creates videos, animations and graphics as a marketing tool for businesses.

Mark aimed to create a video which incorporated humour and stood out from its competitors, with the intention of prompting people to share the video to help it go viral.

Within weeks of launching the video, Mark won over £10,000 of work and has recently completed videos for companies in France and Canada.

The award ceremony was part of the two day National Entrepreneur’s Convention on September 27 and 28, organised by Nigel Botterill’s Entrepreneur’s Circle, the UK’s largest membership organisation dedicated to the growth of small businesses.

Speaking about the awards Mark said: “Quitting my corporate job was the most frightening experience of my life so far, especially when everyone was telling me I was making the wrong decision.

“To receive a top national award especially when we were up against hundreds of other nominees was phenomenal.”

“It’s made me believe that anything is possible and the future for The New Media Company is very bright indeed.”
