You will know from recent blog posts that we have been having an exceptional year by winning many new contracts throughout Scotland. However, it’s not only new contract awards that we are celebrating, we’ve also been nominated for several major awards. Naturally, we are always delighted to be shortlisted for one award, but to be considered for seven is exceptional.
Last month, we were delighted to be named the Scottish Regional Winner of the British Chamber Awards in the “Excellence in Customer Service” category. As regional winners, Spectrum now go on to represent Scotland in the UK finals at a Gala Awards Dinner on Thursday 30th November at the Brewery, London.
We were also delighted to be finalists in another prestigious UK Award – The RBS Great British Entrepreneur Awards, this time in the “Family Business of the Year”. The finals took place at a glittering ceremony at the RBS Headquarters in Edinburgh when we were delighted to be named runner-up in the UK wide competition.
“Excellence in Customer Service” is our finalist category in yet another long-established awards night – The Herald Scottish Family Business Awards. The winners will be announced at their formal dinner and awards presentation on the 6th December at the Radisson Blu Hotel in Glasgow.
However, it is this week that has us really excited. We have been named in three separate categories for the ROCCO Awards which are hosted annually by the Renfrewshire Chamber of Commerce. Hosted in our home town, these awards are particularly close to our hearts, so we were delighted to see the Spectrum name appear, not three times, but four in total on the awards programme! We have been shortlisted in the following categories:
- ROCCO Award for Excellence in Customer Services
- ROCCO Award for Family Business of the Year
- ROCCO Award for Outstanding Business >25 staff
We are honoured to be finalists in these three categories, however we are doubly delighted that our Managing Director, Sara Speirs has been named a finalist in the “ROCCO Award for Business Leader of the Year”.
Speaking about the recent nominations, Sara Speirs said, “I am overwhelmed at the number of nominations we’ve received this year and that we have been named as finalists in so many major awards. These successes don’t happen by accident, it is testament to the hard work applied by every member of the team at Spectrum. Whether we are ultimately named as winners or not, we are already proud to be taking part in the final stages of so many awards nights.”
