Wow! So proud of the whole Salpo team – we just won the award for Business Innovation at the Gloucestershire Business Awards 2018! The awards evening took place on Thursday, 11 October, at Cheltenham Racecourse’s Centaur building. And what a night it was. We’re still recovering from the shock.
Collectively, the team didn’t expect to win. You know how these things go, right? And we were just very glad to have been shortlisted, for the second year in a row. But as the drinks flowed, and the announcement got nearer, I think we all got ‘that feeling’ – why not us? One of us was convinced we’d win from the start (I’m looking at you, Yasmin) perhaps thanks to the optimism of youth. Turns out she was right. And now we’ve officially won, we’re very pleased, naturally.
Aside from our own success, we’d like to congratulate our fellow winners and nominees, along with the judges who recognised our ongoing commitment to business innovation.
Our CEO, Paul Lawrence, offered his congratulations to the team: “This award goes to us all, in recognition of the hard work and effort that we all have put in to get to this point. The awards evening was a wonderful showcase of Gloucestershire business talent, and we’re honoured to be part of such a thriving and successful business community.
