Last Friday saw IBP Recruitment attend the Wiltshire Business Awards, hosted by Center Parcs, Longleat along with other finalists from all across the county. There was a real buzz as business men and women from all over Wiltshire approached the red carpet in their Tuxedos and Dresses, as they readied themselves for photos and a glass of Bubbly.It was a great event for businesses from all sectors, to not only celebrate their successes and achievements over the year. But also, to meet other like-minded people from industries of all varieties in order to connect.
The evening began with a wonderful three course meal as everyone got to know their fellow diners and finalists. The drinks were flowing and all were in high spirits as they awaited the evenings compere, Graham Rogers of BBC Wiltshire, to take the stage and begin proceedings.
IBP were in the Start-Up Business of the year category, and the team were on tenterhooks as the winners were read out, as they readied for the top three places to be announced. In such a strong, diverse category it was going to be close.
Russel Frith, from “The Enterprise Network,” were responsible for judging this highly competitive category. Our table erupted when IBP were announced winning 3rd place, such an achievement for a small team who 18 Months ago, consisted of one person in a serviced office.Managing Director, Craig Roberts commented, “It was a fantastic evening, and it was really satisfying to spend the night with my team, as we reflected on our development as a company. We were thrilled to win 3rd place, and can’t wait to take part next year.”
For now, it’s back to the office to work on placing candidates, helping clients, and as always, being Inspired by People.
