Lubna Rafiq Academy: Small Business of the Year 2012 at HSBC English Asian Business Awards

On Tuesday 6th March, the English Asian Business Awards were held at the Midland Hotel in Manchester. The event recognised the outstanding business achievements of England’s Asian communities. Irfan Younis, Director for the event organisers, Oceanic Consulting, said “This is the first year we have held these awards and we have certainly set a high standard for ourselves to meet in the years to come. Tonight’s winners are fantastic examples of the innovation and dedication of England’s Asian business communities and I’m proud to have been able to highlight their achievements.”

Dalip Puri, Head of Multicultural Banking for title sponsor HSBC, said: “HSBC is proud to be supporting these awards and it was fantastic to see the achievements of England’s thriving Asian business community being recognised at tonight’s event.

“At HSBC we’re continuing to see innovative English businesses making strides and we’re well placed to help them realise their potential. I was impressed by the high calibre of nominees and the winners should all be very proud of their personal achievements and the spirit of entrepreneurship they are fuelling in England.”

Lubna Rafiq Academy is indeed proud to be winner of small business of the year 2012, and we share this success with all of our supporters, clients, fans and team.

At LRA, it is a pleasure to be a leader in shaping the success, skills and future for so many budding hair and makeup artists around the country, and the high level of service and professionalism demonstrated by our graduates is a testament to our continued success.
