Total Guide to and Team Get Nominated for South West Business & Community Awards
We’re excited announce that Total Guide to has been nominated for three separate awards in the South West Business & Community Awards, and that our MD, Liz Ledger and Digital Marketing Administrator, Katie Cooke, have also been nominated.
The South West Business & Community Awards is organised by The Great British Expos Ltd to recognise businesses charities and individuals that have made an outstanding contribution to their region.
We’re proud to announce nomination in the following categories:
- Female Entrepreneur of the Year – Liz Ledger
- Leisure & Tourism Award – Total Guide to
- Business of the Year – Total Guide to
- Apprentice of the Year – Katie Cooke
After nominating Katie for the Apprentice of the Year Award in secret, the shiny envelope to the office was a complete surprise. Ever modest, Katie said “I was just really surprised that I was nominated. It was a bit of a shock but I feel proud and very happy.”
"Katie works very hard and is an absolutely vital member of the Team." said Toby Kirk, Marketing Communications Exec, who works closely with Katie.
"The way Katie keeps up her high standards of work for Total, as well as balancing her studies is phenomenal. Nothing is ever too much for her to handle, she's a joy to have in the office and we're lucky to have her. The nomination is the least we could do!"
The Awards Ceremony will take place in January at DoubleTree by Hilton Swindon and will be judged by a panel of business experts. Paul Waite, CEO of Aspen White, the Award sponsor, respected entrepreneur Anita Jaynes, BBC Apprentice Finalist Richard Woods, Award-winning businesswoman and best-selling author Michelle Mills-Porter, James Phipps, Chairman of Excalibur Communications and serial entrepreneur and Business Leader of 2016 and 2017 Dragon’s Den star Juliane Ponan.
The evening itself will be hosted by ‘The Entrepreneur’s Godmother’ Alison Edgar and will feature live musical performances. As fantastic as these award ceremonies are, there is a more serious side; all the money raised from the evening will go to Prostate Cancer UK.
As we get closer to the South West Business & Community Awards, well keep you updated as to how we get on. Wish us luck!
