We’ve had some great news at Trafalgar and JF Marquees in the last few weeks. Our Managing Director, James Morris, has been nominated as Young Director of the Year at the IoD (Institute of Directors) awards. Firstly, this means we get to attend a glitzy awards ceremony (well we’ve got to get our priorities straight!), but becoming a finalist in such prestigious awards means a whole heap of other positive things for our business too.
With the IoD awards there was a stringent application process which included a written entry and an interview. To become a finalist is great recognition for a job well done by our Managing Director, James and shows that the company is on the right track.
Well you are reading this blog, aren’t you? Becoming an awards finalist is a great good news story for us to share among our clients, suppliers and associates, and we’ve already had some lovely messages of congratulations. We think it also increases our client’s confidence that they have made a great choice in choosing us for their marquee requirements.
The announcement of James’ nomination was a great morale boost in the office and has really spurred us on to make 2017 a fantastic year at Trafalgar and JF Marquees. Knowing that your work is recognised as some of the best by an organisation like the IoD is a great accolade.
Taking part in any awards nomination process is a great way of reflecting on how far your business has come and where you want it to go next. It has helped us formulate ongoing plans for the business and reflect on some of the most positive things in our business, as a whole.
It is very easy to forget to celebrate the wins in our businesses, so an occasion like this is a great opportunity to recognise that. All that’s left to do now is make sure that tux is dry cleaned before the finals on the 17th May!
