How did it all start?
We first handed in our applications back in July, we were hoping that we would get shortlisted for one of the categories we had entered. Little did we know that we would be nominated for all 3 we had entered! We were over the moon, and soon preparations were in place to make sure we had the best chance of winning one of the coveted awards.
Were we nominated for: Let’s Talk Apprenticeships, Corporate Social Responsibility and Young Business Person.
We were all nervous for the Awards Ceremony, and it got all the more real when an entire camera crew turned up at our doorstep. The had come to take footage of our everyday work life and interview a couple of us, the video would be played at the awards ceremony later in the year.
The dress code for the event was really posh, so the ladies in the business had been panicking for weeks about what they were to wear. We were able to leave early on the day of the awards to get ready for 6:30 where we all met in The Coach House in Chester. We then made our way the the Chester Cathedral where the awards were going to be held. We waited for the awards to be announced, and we got more and more anxious as we found that the categories we had been shortlisted for had been given to other companies. The last category we were entered in started to be announced – The Young Business Person of The Year which Nathan had been nominated for. We couldn’t believe it, he won!
We all had a great night thanks to the event being so well organised. So thank you to Events North West.
