Dupree Creative, a full service brand development agency based in Castle Bytham, Lincolnshire, has won Employer of the Year in the FSB Celebrating Small Business Awards 2018 for the East Midlands area.

This area final held by the Federation of Small Businesses provides an opportunity for businesses to achieve the accolade, endorsement of success and credibility and standing amongst their peers on a local and national level. All the area finalists met at the Doubletree Hilton, Nottingham on 8th February and despite the tough competition from Orderwise and One to One Support Services, Dupree Creative won the category.


Established nearly 20 years ago, Dupree Creative offers a full range of marketing skills to deliver growth and development for clients across an assortment of sectors and on a local to international scale. A significant value of Dupree Creative is ‘understanding’ and this value is not just applied for a successful brand development agency but it is the foundation of the company culture and team-spirit.


This award is a testament to Martin and Julie who instil their beliefs of being approachable, committed, self-motivated, accountable and making it happen into the team. One doesn’t happen without the other and as a company, each individual’s skill set complements the other to make a well-rounded team.


Dave Allen, Business Development Director of Dupree Creative, spoke to the FSB team about what the award means to the company: “Its really important because it goes back to our core values as a business of understanding, like our team, being understanding of our clients and this award is recognition of that hard work and the relevance that brings.”


Dupree Creative will now represent the East Midlands and have the opportunity to win a national award for Employer of the Year. The grand final will take place in a glittering ceremony staged at the Westminster Park Plaza in London on 3 May 2018.
