"TUC is a leading utility broker that specialise in utility cost reduction & billing consultation for SME’s across the UK. We have helped our users save thousands of pounds on utility renewals, making them financially stronger.”

Irfan Younis, CEO of Oceanic Consulting said: “The English Asian Business Awards, now in their 8th year, are always a brilliant night that bring together some of the best and most accomplished people from the English business community for a night of reward and recognition.

"All finalists should feel immensely proud of themselves as they beat out some brilliant competition to get shortlisted. I’m looking forward to a fantastic night at a ceremony which acts as a platform to thank those who work hard to deliver exceptional services and products to their clients and inspire other Asians to thrive in their fields.
