The PRO BIKE TOOL team scooped up GOLD and SILVER awards at the UK Business Awards in Central London, last Friday November 8th.
We reached the final round in two categories having gone through a rigorous and hotly contested initial selection process. On Friday, 8th November the finalists and judges gathered at Park Plaza Riverbank in London to compete for a coveted series of prizes and share the very best ideas from the world of business.
In the morning, husband and wife team Chris and Nicole impressed the judges with their presentation, condensing a complex range of working practises into a concise, engaging 15-minute pitch, then took questions from the panel – Dragon’s Den style.
The standard of competition was exceptionally high.
In a glamorous ceremony, we were given the Gold award for ‘Best SME’, and Silver for ‘Best Customer Centric Organisation: Digital Initiatives’. Hearing our name read out was an extremely special moment for us – recognition and confirmation that we have created a real and successful business from the ground up.
We were judged the top entrant in the prestigious ‘Best SME’ category from a shortlist of six businesses. We were pitched against Small and Medium Sized businesses from across the business spectrum, including international recruitment and HR organisations, an online fashion brand and a digital marketing agency – many of which boast central London offices and depth of resources and staff.
Thank you to Awards International for organising the event – it has given us great confidence and belief in our achievements.
