Celebration Time!!

What a brilliant month October was and what a cracking month November is shaping up to be!  Its celebration time all round!!

Firstly, October saw me presenting the “Sporting Achievement of the Year Award” with Derek Redmond at the County Durham Sports Awards!  What a fantastic speaker that guy is!  Just what the achievers needed to hear – an inspiring half an hour of wisdom from a World Class winner!  And the winner was Alex Houston, a local gymnast who is winning awards at world-class level, so we quite proudly presented him with the Award!


Then, in November I’ve been at the Mumandworking Awards and did a short presentation about What’s On 4 Me.  Little did I know that my slot was between Sarah Beeny, TV Celeb, and Antonia Chitty, world-renowned writer on Flexible working, so I felt quite the Celeb too!

The Mumandworking Awards celebrated Flexible Working providers and my sponsored Award “Franchisor of the Year” was won by Claire O’Connor, owner of Baby Ballet.  Claire now has 23 franchises operational across the UK for Baby Ballet and is on the verge of Internationalising – so well done to Claire!  As it happens, she also went to win the “Business Parent of the Year” Award, so she was a double winner on the day!

The other major happening in November was our new What’s On 4 Me Franchise coming on board!  Diane Francis is now leading the way in the Southern regions with the Somerset and Bristol Franchise!  Well done to Diane already for creating a site which is shaping up to be quite inspirational – in fact I’ll have to get my skates on or else she’ll be putting County Durham to shame!!

Lastly, besides presenting a variety of Awards, I am also in the running for two Awards!  Next week is the final for the East Durham Celebration of Enterprise Awards at an Awards Dinner on Wednesday evening.  So, I’ll dust off my posh frock again and find my dancing shoes, as fingers crossed, I could be on the receiving end of an Award myself this time! 

I’ll keep you posted!!
