What a great evening!
The Young Enterprise Celebration of Achievement Dinner on Wednesday 5th May. The event was held at the Pro-star stadium, home of Shrewsbury Town Football Club.
It was a grand finale after nearly a year of hard work by so many young people aged 15-19-starting, forming and running their own business-with all the highs and lows that go with it.
Nineteen teams took part with fourteen awards on the night. The hands were sore from clapping and the eyes red from lack of sleep – at 11 pm we were still awarding the prizes-but it was all worth it.
Always Consult was delighted to sponsor an award. I am passionate about customer service, so our award had to be linked with customer service and the ability to interact with customers and judges. As such we came up with:
“The Always Consult Best Customer Interaction award.”
This was awarded to the team who not only interacted with passion and enthusiasm about their products with the judges, but with the customers who came to their stall at the fair trade events in Telford and Shrewsbury.
After careful consideration and much deliberation by all, it was decided that “SelfScribe” from Shrewsbury Sixth Form College would take the prize. Their business was – self scribing on colourful hoodies.
Always Consult look forward to sponsoring the event in 2011.
Very best wishes to you all,
