I completed the August Awards Accelerator training in November and wanted to Thank Donna for delivering such an insightful and inspiring day! Prior to the training I had no clue where to start, and no confidence that entering awards would be time well spent for the company. Within 5 minutes of commencing the training, Donna had blown all my misconceptions about business awards out of the water! The Accelerator training covered everything I needed to know, from how to build our awards strategy, right through to how to use awards for marketing our business. I'm looking forward to sharing my ideas with the rest of the company so we can get cracking on our entries for awards in 2021. Thank you August 🙂

I had a fantastic experience with Donna and her team. Right from the start she was great at tailoring her awards service to me and my personality (I hate forms!), she was highly professional in interviewing my nomination case studies - and I won a Gold Stevie Award - first time around! fantastic investment in me and my business.

I found the training extremely useful as this is something that can be carried forward and used on a day-to-day basis.”

With the confidence and learning points I took from the day, we have successfully submitted and been awarded the Patient Partnership Quality Mark (PPQM) from The Royal College of Chiropractors, for our clinics in Canary Wharf and London Bridge. It really feels fantastic to gain an award, so thank you again for everything.”
