International success for Elixir


Young entrepreneurs from 37 different countries competed in the JA-YE Company of the Year Competition in Berlin earlier this year, among them ‘Elixir’, a Bridson and Horrox sponsored company. Elixir won the Isle of Man Junior Achievement Company of the Year Award in March and subsequently went on to represent the island at the prestigious awards in July.

Rhian O’Leary, of QE2 High School, was one of just 11 students from across Europe to receive an Alumni Leadership Award at the JA-YE competition, picked from a shortlist of 40 strong competitors.

It’s no secret that we like to support Manx businesses but this was an exceptional opportunity to encourage younger local talent and we predict a bright future from Rhian and her colleagues in the business world.
