AN air of excitement filled corporate boardrooms in Lisburn this week as RTE camera crews rolled in to town to film this year's installment of the 'Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year — Meet the Finalists' series...

This ever-popular, annual celebration of entrepreneurship will feature two of Lisburn's most successful and inspiring entrepreneurs as they bring viewers on a virtual tour of their thriving workplace to demonstrate the unparalleled degree of dedication and commitment it takes to lead and grow a successful business on the global stage.

Stuart and Russell Dickson, of Decora Blind Systems in Lisburn, spent a number of days filming the entertaining and enlightening episode with Series Presenter and Chairperson of the Judging Panel, Padraig O'Ceidigh.

The airline executive, winner of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year title in 2002, spoke with these inspirational innovators about their exciting enterprises and the immeasurable level of tenacity, technical ability and ground-breaking innovation' required to reach the fmal stages of this prestigious, annual business awards programme.

However, as the saying goes, 'all work and no play makes for a dull life' and the team from RTE spent a fascinating day in the company of this year's Lisburn-based finalists.

Brothers and business partners, Stuart and Russell Dickson, who share a serious passion for golf, brought Padraig out for a relaxing round on of their favourite courses at Malone Golf Club in Belfast.
