26th July '17
Suited and booted in our finest clothes, several members of the Source team recently headed over to the Telford International Centre to attend this year’s Shropshire Business Awards.
The awards ceremony is a firm favourite of ours and, as usual, a great night was had by all. We enjoyed a fun-filled evening to honour the numerous successful Shropshire-based businesses.
Many great local companies were nominated for a variety of categories and awards, including a few of our very own clients, namely Purition (nominated for ‘Best New Business’ and ‘Online Business of the Year’), Kadai (‘Online Business of the Year’), Qi Van Systems (‘Technology Enterprise & Innovation’ and ‘Manufacturing Transport & Logistics’) and Pave Aways Ltd (‘Business in the Community’).
After the first half of winners were announced, we were treated to a delicious meal, followed by the second half of awards. After which we were treated to a talk about business by Steve Smith, the south Shropshire businessman who founded Poundland.
Once the ceremony and awards were finished, the night’s fun was just beginning. Tensions were high and the competition was fierce as several inter-company table football matches took place. We then tried our luck at the after-dinner casino. Whilst James did win a small fortune, his joy was short-lived after discovering he’d been awarded Monopoly money.
Finally, it was time to get our groove on as we took to the dance floor. Unfortunately, none of us are blessed with skills such as the likes of Michael Jackson or Darcey Bussell and so there were quite a few questionable dance moves. The less said about those the better!
