Awards season 2021 has been non stop with nominations for clients. In fact, I can’t remember when I’ve worked on quite so many.
Now the shortlist announcements and awards events are in full swing.
Four clients were finalists at the recent Exeter Living Awards:
- Winners: The Recycled Candle Company (Retailer) and The Family Law Company (Legal & Financial)
- Finalists: Burrington Estates (Property) and Griffin Chartered Accountants (Legal & Financial)
- The Outdoors Group won Education, with their own nomination
The Family Law Company is a finalist in the upcoming Family Law Awards (Wellbeing), Law Society Awards (Excellence in Practice Management), DASLS Awards (seven categories!), Paralegal Awards. They were finalists earlier in the year for the Legal Aid Awards and we have also entered the Wellness Awards.
The Recycled Candle Company has won a Green Apple Environmental Award and – all being well – will visit the Houses of Parliament to collect the award in November. We’re trying to get a Queens Award nomination ready but there’s so much detail this one may have to wait a year.
My newest client, SunGift Solar, is a finalist in the Western Morning News Awards in both categories we entered, SME and Environmental. We wait to hear with bated breath about the Solar & Storage Awards.
And I have recently submitted a nomination for London client Diespeker & Co in the South East Manufacturing Awards.
More to come with the Exeter Property Awards and then I guess we start all over again!
There is definitely a skill to writing a successful nomination. And whilst data and evidence is of paramount importance, it is also crucial to be honest, and to give heart to a nomination.
It’s all part of the service!
