During the last few months we have been presenting at High Schools and Colleges, being interviewed on the local radio station, visiting new businesses at their offices and meeting some fantastic individuals to upload pre-career opportunities. All this culminating in being selected and winning two fantastic awards namely Small Business Saturday UK 100 and the Enterprise Vision Award 2016 for the Internet Industry UK.
The EVAs (Enterprise Vision Awards) recognise women in business across the North West. It gives individuals the opportunity to reflect on their achievements, alongside growing in confidence, an opportunity to network and provides winners the accolade of being an EVA award winner!
We were both honoured and proud to be amongst some really inspirational ladies and fantastic applicants, and equally delighted to receive our award from category Judge Ian Rolfe, of World Pay who were the sponsors of the Internet Category.
After our submission were we overjoyed to be selected to move onto the 2nd part of the process – the interview. On a sunny day in July we embarked on our road trip to Blackpool Football Club to meet our judges. After a gruelling but enjoyable 25 minutes we emerged triumphant that we had come through the final process more or less unscathed. A few weeks of anticipation later and we were on our way to Blackpool again only this time it was to the EVAs Awards evening at the infamous Winter Gardens. The venue was a sight to behold and the excitement and atmosphere of the evening captured all the essence and ambience of the fabulous event. When the Internet finalists were announced later in the evening we could hardly contain our excitement and when Ian…. said ‘Savvy Guest’ we really couldn’t quite believe it. What a fabulous end to a perfect evening.
