Join us for Bicester Business Lunch Club on Tuesday 22 March, where we will be joined by Zeta Specialist Lighting CEO Phil Shadbolt. Phil will give a potted history of how he started Zeta, his trials and tribulations, successes and failures of the last 26 years of Zeta leading to his award of an OBE in this year’s New Year honours. Under Phil's stewardship, Zeta has received a number of prestigious awards recognising its success in innovation, including five DTI SMART Awards. In its silver anniversary year, the company picked up The Integration Technology Export Award at the 2014 Cherwell Valley Business Awards, and a Silver Scoot Headline Award, which recognises and rewards the successes and achievements of British businesses, large and small. The company has a portfolio of patented product innovations one of which – the Zeta Bespoke Solar Signage Kit, a custom-made solution for lighting outdoor totems and monoliths, was named Sign Product of the Year at the 2014 British Sign Awards. In 2010, the company won funding from the Technology Strategy Board and Defra through the Small Business Research Initiative and is also involved in a three-year project with Plessey Semi-Conductors which will lead to more advanced LED technology becoming available. In addition to his work at Zeta, Phil sits on four Boards; OxLEP, Bicester Vision, Bicester Technology Studio, Activate Learning Education Trust and he is a Governor at Oxford Brookes University.
