Norwood’s ‘Young Norwood’ Property Awards Dinner 2012

YN-Property-Awards-Dinner-2012Search Office Space is delighted to support this year’s Young Norwood Property Awards Dinner which will take place at the Hilton London Metropole on the 27th February 2012.

The YN Property Awards are a celebration of the brightest young stars of the property world and here at Search Office Space, we believe strongly in nurturing and rewarding young talent. As a leading office broker, Search Office Space deals with many clients in all aspects of the property market. We think the awards are a fantastic opportunity to showcase achievement and acknowledge the hard work of young people within the industry.

Established in 1785 by brothers Abraham and Benjamin Goldsmid, Norwood supports families and children with learning disabilities and has become one of the UK’s largest Jewish charities. Today, the Stanmore based charity currently provides a range of over 120 specialist services. These include registered and supported housing, special education, respite care, employment, adoption, fostering and leisure services, both in the UK and internationally.

Norwood’s Royal Patron, Her Majesty the Queen, is also joined by a number celebrity supporters, such as Sir Elton John, David Furnish, Simon Cowell, Sir Philip Green, Roger Daltery, Bernie Ecclestone, Tom Conti, Theo Pathitis and Piers Morgan.

Like most charities, there are a number of ways in which the public can help. In 1993, Norwood’s now Deputy Chairman, David Ereira, formed Young Norwood (YN) which aimed to get young professionals, aged between 21 to 35, recognised in the community.

Since 2006, Young Norwood has hosted property events and fundraisers. However, 2011 was the first time that the event had incorporated an award scheme. The YN Property Awards Dinner 2011 raised £57,000 for the Norwood charity, and this year hopes to raise even more!

The 2011 winners were as follows:

• Shamik Narotam (Morgan Stanley) for Young Deal of the Year

• Shaun Simons, Ricky Blair, Michael Raibin and Richard Silver (Hatton Real Estate) for Young Agency of the Year

• Ryan Springer (Franc-Warick) for Young Property Professional of the Year

This month is the YN Property Awards Dinner 2012, which will celebrate talented young property professionals in the following categories:

Young Deal of the Year

Young Developer of the Year

Young Entrepreneur of the Year

Young Residential Professional of the Year

Young Commercial Professional of the Year

Nominees will be shortlisted and invited to the award ceremony and dinner, which can be attended by the public. Ticket sales go towards the Norwood charity.

In the past, Young Norwood events have contributed approximately £100,000 to the charity each year, so it’s a great event to get involved with, especially for those with the real estate and serviced office industries.

Furthermore, Search Office Space is proud to announce that our very own Director, Daniel Howard, has been nominated for the ‘Young Deal of the Year’ award. We will be sure to keep you up to date on any further announcements surrounding the NY Property Awards Dinner 2012, so keep an eye on the Search Office Space blog for more information.
