On Thursday 25th June we attended the esteemed FSB Bedfordshire Business Awards gala evening held at the newly opened Center Parcs at Woburn Forest, “The Venue” which is their aptly named and very impressive conference center.
The usual protocol of champagne arrival with all attendees looking splendid in their best black tie and evening gown attire. A certain level of excitement and nervous anticipation was in the air amongst the FSB finalists.
Following the delectable 3 course meal, all nerves were a little more settled with the help of a few more glasses of bubbly! The grand venue stage was set and our hostess Vick Hope kicked off the awards – which bizarrely turned out to be a hoax first category that was hi-jacked by ‘waiters on call’ that took the acme-award and burst into “song” providing a rather amusing opera performance!
We are delighted to announce that our very own Marc Scott – Sales Director – took the “Young Business Person of the Year” award. Upon winning the award Marc commented “I’m thrilled to take this gong especially as it’s my last year of being able to enter the “young” business person category – of course one can not ignore the fact that this was not just a solo effort, and I would not be able to accept this award without acknowledging the whole of Team LB.”
We are also pleased to announce that Stuart Marquis finished runner-up in the “Employee of the Year” category. Stuart commented “It’s great to receive this sort of recognition and it shows that hard work does pay off. It’s also a get motivator for next year to go one better.”
We would like to thank FSB Bedfordshire for hosting a fantastic event along with the headline sponsors – Everline, Basepoint Business Centers, Cross Pens, Center Parcs, Wenta, S.M.B Awards and Merchandise and Business2Business.
Well done to all the finalists and congratulations to all the winners.
