Having now participated in a number of these events including the IWFM and IIRSM conferences and respective awards evenings (to name but two), they all went very well, particularly with the amount of re-organising each must have entailed, although the networking could not be really replicated and the dining was greatly missed!
The final gala of the year for me was the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards, at which we were also a finalist in the Business of the Year (over £1,000,000 turnover) category. With the introduction that “the winner is driven by a strong set of values that underpins how they operate internally and externally, with continuous support for their clients, employees and the community”, it was announced that we had won the award!
If you're brave enough to watch us a few of us win the award - you can view it below.
Even without the networking and dining (although a glass or two in celebration was raised), it was very rewarding the get the recognition especially this year.
Let’s hope in 2021 we can bring back the experiences in full effect.
