MacRoberts Rupa Mooker hosts the Scottish Asian Business Awards
Rupa Mooker, Senior Associate at MacRoberts, hosted the 11th annual Scottish Asian Business Awards last night at a sparkling awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow.
The Scottish Asian Business Awards honour the determination, hard work and personal achievements of the Scottish Asian business community. Each year the competition has become more intense as the event has grown into a highly respected outlet where the best and brightest are honoured.
Last night’s main prize – The Chhokar Family Legacy Award – was presented to Glasgow’s Dixon Community Centre. The Chhokar Family Legacy Award recognises those who are ‘positively impacting lives and making a tangible difference.’ The awards official charity partner, The Well Foundation, also launched Oceanic Well at the ceremony, with all profits going towards water well projects around the world.
As well as hosting these awards for the fourth time, Rupa is also a regular host for other prestigious events including the Glasgow Mela, Scotland’s biggest multi-cultural outdoor event. On top of being a successful employment lawyer for 15 years she also presented Scotland’s first national Asian radio show ‘Asian Overground’ on BBC Radio Scotland and had her own weekly show on community radio for ten years.
Rupa said of the awards,
“I was delighted to once again host the Scottish Asian Business Awards. It is a fantastic event that celebrates the thriving Scottish Asian business community and all its successes.”
