Cumbria’s Got Talent!

Dave Bewick of ShortForm is a yet another of Cumbria’s great creative talents. Since setting up ShortForm with fellow Cumbrian Ellie Hunt and the one and only Pedro a few years ago they have been rushed off their feet with projects for Windermere Lake Cruises, The Lowry, Manchester University, BBC and beyond. We sent them out on a mission for the Cumbria Family Business Awards to get to the heart of family businesses in our county. Travelling across the county, they interviewed some tip top family businesses along the way.  Our thanks go to Dave and the ShortForm team and all the brilliant businesses who threw themselves into the project.

There’s a shared business ethic and value set that we saw across the board. Everyone was lovely, and truly passionate about their business and what it means for them, their family and their local area. Family businesses have to adapt to their own community and locality, and having met so many across the county we could see the impact this has on Cumbria as a whole. – Dave

Family businesses are so ace, you don’t do things like the corporates, you do it your own way and that is what we want to celebrate. We will be sharing the full video with you on October 12th and individual interviews with you as time goes on.
