INSPIRE AWARDS 2015
Inspire Awards 2015. Dresses and suits were purchased/borrowed/dusted off, as The Typeface Group team descended on The De Vere Highfield Park Hotel in Heckfield on Thursday night.
Having won in 2014 and experienced a superb evening of glitz and bubbles, we were excited to attend in a different capacity; official social media partner, and proudly representing four finalists!
The Inspire Business Awards celebrate the success of local businesses in north Hampshire, from Andover in the west to Farnborough in the east and everywhere in between. The awards are open to those from across the region and will ensure leading local businesses (both large and small) gain the recognition they deserve for themselves and most importantly for the dedication and commitment of their staff.
A roundup of Inspire Awards 2015
After ‘appearances’ on television shows such as The X Factor and TOWIE, and outstanding development of the business since its birth, it’s no surprise that TFG client Bubblegum Balloons deservedly snatched the first award of the night. They were crowned ‘New Business Of The Year’. We were thrilled for the ladies, and cannot wait to see where this accolade will take them now.
Arguably, one of the toughest categories was ‘Small Business Of The Year’. For which TFG client iWaste had conquered a record number of other entries, to become a finalist. It wasn’t their night this year, but they were recognised and praised for their finalist status and encouraged to re-enter in 2016.
Both Jay Archer, Jay Archer Floral Design and Gordon Stott from The Sun Inn were finalists in the ‘Young Business Person Of The Year’ and were thrilled with the confidence and experience that Inspire Awards 2015 had given them.
Overseeing the Twitter ‘wall’ and Tweeting using #inspireawards15 was a fast-paced task, but one that gained so much momentum. The large screens displaying the evenings’ tweets almost ground to a halt! We weren’t successful in getting the hashtag trending worldwide, but the quantity of interest in tweeting about the night was huge! And likewise, the novelty of seeing a glamorous selfie up on the big screens was infectious!
An evening of varied musical entertainment, including a brass band and superb live singer Natasha Watts, delicious food, raucous photo booth shenanigans with unique fancy dress opportunities, inspiring speeches, business networking, selfies, mega tweeting, dancing, clapping, cheering and plenty of laughs.
See you next year!
