Award Ceremony

21st July 2011

Award Ceremony

With very successful business comes the invitation to a prestigious awards ceremony.
I hear you ask, what’s an award ceremony?
Admittedly it is a one off excuse to invest in that brand new designer dress you have had your eye on for months, a new pair of sky-scraping heels, alongside a clutch bag that probably cost more than the dress itself.
The awards ceremony that the Berries attended was based at Yeovilton Air Museum. Definitely a venue to be remembered.
Having managed to stagger through the exceptionally vast car park; Myself, Helen, Natalie and Luisa were in desperate need of a refreshing beverage to revitalise our energy levels. ( In other words to make us numb to the excruciating pain in our calf muscles!).
We were welcomed by a very friendly chap at the back door- VIP style.
After walking what felt like a five mile marathon we arrived out our allocated table shared with the very glamorous CCK girls. Sadly, after tottering slowly to the main room, all the free Pimms had gone. You can imagine our disappointment!?!
We were all as ready as one another to tuck in to our set meals. For starters we were served fresh melon, Tender pork with roast potatoes and a selection of vegetables for the main course and last but not least Profiteroles for dessert. Sadly, at this point my dress was bursting at the seams.
Red Berry Recruitment was up against some ripe competition. We were chosen as one of three shortlisted companies to be entered into the ‘Small Business Award’. Fingers crossed. Our managing director, Helen Lacey, was also nominated and shortlisted to be awarded as ‘Business Person of the year’. Fingers and toes crossed.
Watching the chosen candidates walk to the stage to collect their awards was uplifting. Big smiles and kind words spoken from each individual introduced me to a number of admirable, passionate and enthusiastic business people.
The laughs echoed against the Concorde we were sat directly under and the sound of applause of each achievement gave a warm feeling of success.
As proud as we are to be nominated and shortlisted for the two awards we did not come first. This far from dampened our spirit as every nominee was a winner in our eyes.
To conclude the evening we had a professional photographer get a few shots of us. This was probably the worst time to be required to pout and poise, with laughter lines in our makeup from the great humour of our company to the tight black dress that did me no justice after the generous meal). Nevertheless the photo’s looked great; I will thank Adobe Photoshop for my transformation.
All in all a good evening was had by all. Now time for a well-deserved sleep… No chance! The Berries decided to descend upon the local pub.
A night to remember!
