Carson McDowell crowned Brainiest Business

Carson McDowell crowned Brainiest Business

Over 40 companies came together on Thursday 28th February in Ten Square Hotel, Belfast to contest the title of Brainiest Business. The sold-out corporate quiz raised over £14,500 for Adsum Foundation’s work in Madagascar.

The phenomenal total would not have been achieved were it not for the support and generosity of the local business community. A variety of sectors were represented on the night which led to healthy competition.

Funds raised on the evening will go towards the building of a 3 room cyclone proof primary school in Sandrangato, Madagascar. This build project will allow 180 children to return to education, bringing the primary school population to over 400.

Congratulations to the worthy winners. First place was secured by Carson McDowell, second place by Ulster Bank and Mills Selig came third with TDK close behind them.


Thanks must also go to all those who sponsored ballot prizes and auction items, ensuring that not just the top quizzers went home with something! The drinks reception sponsored by Estrella Damm UK went down a treat with guests on arrival.
