Wow! I went along to the 373 Awards in the capacity of a finalist, and came home as an award winner!
It was a complete surprise to be named winner for Best Professional Service, and a real honour. Thank you to those who nominated me.
I was slightly concerned as two clients were finalists in the same category and I didn’t want to upset anyone… but I needn’t have worried. Chilcotts were awarded Highly Commended, which they were delighted about, and Rachel Buckley from The Family Law Company was named Top 373 Person. So everyone was happy.
Well done too, to Sarah Martin at Nourish, Highly Commended in the Start Up category and Rusty Pig, who although they didn’t win, were worthy finalists in the Rural category.
It was lovely to meet all the other finalists at the awards event held at Escot House. The 373 Awards celebrate lots of businesses that don’t always get recognition, so many of them I didn’t know of before.
I came home with a lovely hamper of goodies donated by local busineses, including a jar of award-winning raspberry jam from my client Otter Garden Centres! (I have to say the chocolate didn’t make it home, it was consumed immediately by Rachel, Donna Hart and me!).
