Taking South Wales under their wing, Ouma have certainly made an impression across the country as they proudly announce their nominations as an award finalist in two categories at Bierkeller’s first ever business awards in Cardiff this month.
Cardiff Bierkeller business awards in partnership with Indaba Corporate Events, will be a night to celebrate local businesses and business people in South Wales. The first category, and one of the most competitive awards Ouma has been nominated for is Best Integrated Marketing Company. Ouma faces three other companies in the final line-up for the award which will be judged on their work over the past year.

Ross Jones, CEO of Ouma Group said: “I’m thrilled Ouma has been nominated for one award let alone two awards. It was a shock as it’s our first ever award nomination since starting Ouma Group, so to make it into the final few to potentially win an award is brilliant. We strive to always be at the top of our game, so I am excited to have been nominated in both categories.”
Ouma Group’s second nomination for an award is for Entrepreneur of the Year. Entrepreneurs influence change in the market place, they create jobs, bring new innovative products and concepts to the market and encourage creativity and competition. Ross has certainly done this in the last few months with Ouma, using his outsourced marketing team to create a customer base for brands such as Amazon, Hermes, DPD and Ernest and Young, outsourcing marketing allows smaller businesses the skills and resource of a complete marketing team, without the intimidating cost.
The awards are set to take place on Thursday, June 14, where radio presenter, Polly Jones from Capital FM will be presenting the 14 awards up for grabs. Guests and nominees will also be able to practice striking a pose as the red carpet will be rolled out for all those attending, they will be greeted with canapes and drinks and served a hog roast with all the trimmings for dinner. After the awards ceremony there will be an after-party DJ who will keep the celebrations going until the early hours at Bierkeller Cardiff.
Guests attending the awards ceremony will also be able to try their luck and buy themselves a ticket for a charity raffle in aid of Ty Hafan, a welsh children’s hospice which aims to meet all the needs of life-limited children, young people and their families, at every step of their difficult journey by providing a wide range of care and support at the hospice in the Vale of Glamorgan and in the homes of the families and their communities.
“We are up against some outstanding companies who are all experts in their field and I wish everyone the best of luck,” said Ross Jones.
