Well we got dolled up, drove to Maidstone and braced ourselves for a night of clapping for all the amazing women that were representing some fantastic companies across Kent, putting on brave faces. So you can imagine our surprise when we were awarded Runners-Up in the Marketing and PR category for Kent Women In Business!
It became apparent that this was a hotly contested category, with more than 40 entrants, so we were at that point pretty happy with having achieved Finalist status. As they read out the category and gave details on the other Finalists, we realised that we were keeping some amazing company and that we had done well to get that far, given that we haven’t even been trading for a year yet.
So when they read out that we’d been awarded Runner-up, you can imagine the surprise. And the shock. With dazed faces, we walked across to receive our award and be photographed.
It’s odd, we know that clients are happy with our work because they tell us and give us testimonials to share with others but, and perhaps it’s a peculiarly female thing, we never thought that we would achieve any kind of recognition from someone who didn’t know us at all. So it’s a fantastic confidence boost and a nice feather in our cap.
But, of course, we won’t be truly satisfied until we’ve got a ‘Winner’ award!
