Back in September we were told that we were finalists for a national award called Achievers Academy for Women ran by Jo Cameron. We were in the 'network of networks' category and were up against four other businesses. The others in our category were all brilliant and we knew we were up against some stiff competition and if we are honest we didn't think we had any chance of winning.
On Friday the 9th we were invited to the awards ceremony at Aston Villa Football Club to find out the winners of all the awards. So we dressed up in our cocktail dresses and arrived at the venue. The room was set out amazing and we each arrived to a glass of champagne and a goody bag full of goodies on our seat.
We sat down for Jo's opening speech and started off the lovely meal. We were told after the main course that our category was going to be announced straight after dessert so we had another wait. After the lovely pudding they started to announce the winner of our category and myself and stacey were to busy taking bets on who we thought was winners that we were absolutely shocked when we were announced as winners! We were over the moon and went onto stage in a daze to collect our trophy and have our picture taken. We got back to our seats still in total shock but just really really proud of what we have achieved this year.
Myself and Stacey both work extremely well together and that is why it works! We sat down in January this year and we wrote our goals down and by doing so we committed to them to make them work. It has been an amazing year and winning this award has topped it off for us. We now can't wait until 2013!
Thanks to everyone that has supported us along the way!
