Talint Partners strive to continually educate and connect professionals involved in the talent and staffing industries. The Talint Awards programme aims to set a new standard of excellence for the recruitment sector’s highest achievements.
In the Entrepreneur of the Year category, TIARA judges were impressed with Danny’s inspirational story, overcoming a significant number of obstacles to lead a strong business and energising his team to drive growth.
‘I am beyond delighted to have been named Recruitment Entrepreneur of the Year 2019. Talint and the TIARAs are a benchmark of quality in the staffing industry internationally, and the history and prestige of sponsors Mishcon de Reya add another level of global recognition.
