We won ! We Won ! It might only have been a balloon, but we did actually win something.
In the words of Britney Spears ……. “oops we’ve done it again” …well almost!…
But yes, its official for the third year running, yes three years in a row we have come home with one of the top three awards at the Made in Bury Business Awards receiving the “COMMENDED” award in the “Best in Class – Motoring” category.
The Motoring category is open to not just driving schools, but any business with a Motoring angle eg Car Sales, Car Repairs, Chauffer’s, Taxi Companies, Mini Buses etc. There is also no limit to the size of business, for example two of the previous winners have been RRG-Group and Cartime. Other winners on the night in various categories this year were Milliken, AFG Law, Lavender Hotel Group, so for a driving school as small as we are it is a fantastic achievement to be rubbing shoulders with the big players in town.
Why do I think three years is a good thing, when we haven’t actually ever won the damned thing?…….
Let me tell you more ………..
Firstly the winners of the last three years in the Motoring category have failed to appear in the final three in each subsequent year. Why I don’t know maybe resting on their laurels, or happy to have and won and moved on. What I do know is, here at Get Driving Today we have showed consistency in the delivery of our driving lessons and business practices to be happy to enter the awards knowing we have a fantastic chance of winning something if not the ultimate winners trophy e.g. for the last three years coming home with two COMMENDED and one HIGHLY COMMENDED award on each occasion.
To be part of the evening and mixing with some of the big business players in Bury is always a highlight of our year even if I don’t show it on the night (I’m sure some reading this will know what I mean).
As I didnt get chance to mention anyone in the winners speach….I must give a special mention to all the guys at The Best of Bury (Kathryn, Cheryl, Debi and Phil) without who’s continued support and guidance, we probably wouldn’t even be entering never mind winning.
Will it be four years in a row in 2018 ? Who knows, Thanks for reading
