For me personally it was a great achievement, and I have been able to inform our customer base on twitter and facebook etc in regards to winning the award, unfortunately I wasnâ€™t able to gain any regional press activity around winning the award, which would have been ideal especially as Bristol has been voted Green Capital 2015, along with the fact that I manufacture environmentally friendly products all made in the UK.
Personally it was a great boost to receive recognition for all of the hard work I have put in to the business over the past 6 years, this was the first award that I have received that I felt gave recognition for my own personal work that I have put in to the business and not just for what my business actually does. I virtually never have the time to recognise what I have personally achieved as Iâ€™m always far to busy and consumed by my business! So a great Award and a great evening, thank you.
Venus Awards raised my profile in the business community and brought about some new clients which has led to an increase in profits.
I would highly recommend nominating yourself or a friend, if only for the experience of the Awards ceremony, being surrounded by and hearing the great stories from other like minded business women and seeing what they have also achieved, I found it very inspiring and personally it gave me a real boost, as so often all you feel is the hard slog of work!
