Who wins when you win?

Company News

By Donna O’Toole

Who wins when you win?

I’ve always believed that success is far more enjoyable when you share it.

How great does it feel to know that you have made someone else smile?

How rewarding is it to know that you’ve done something to make someone’s life better?

And how amazing is it when you see that person grow and achieve their own success thanks to the little seed that you sewed?

Infinitely, that’s how much!

We’re all sharing our ‘little wins’ on a daily basis, as leaders sharing our success with our teams, customers and contacts to give them better outcomes, as parents sharing our successful experiences with our children to shape their lives, and as friends and partners sharing our success with our loved ones and enjoying the rewards together.

CELEBRATING YOUR SUCCESS

So I’ve always wanted to be able to share the success of our award-winning clients and celebrate in a way that really mattered. That wasn’t only to raise their profiles so that they could go on to do even more amazing things, but for us to tangibly create our own positive impact on the world too. And I’m delighted to have found the perfect way!

Now, by becoming part of the B1G1 movement, every time one of our clients wins an award we will be celebrating and sharing their success by providing 5 days of business training to a woman in Zimbabwe. This will give every woman we support the training and skills she needs to unlock new opportunities and work towards a better future.

As a female entrepreneur who started with nothing, I’ve depended on hard work, self-development and continued education to help reach my own goals, so this is a project really close to my heart. I am passionate about giving people the education and skills they need to create a better future for themselves and their families, and this project helps us to support the UN’s Global Goals for Quality Education, Decent Work and Economic Growth.

B1G1

I was introduced to the B1G1 movement by Daniel Priestley, co-founder of Dent Global and author of the inspirational Key Person of Influence book and high-impact accelerator programme for entrepreneurs. Daniel challenged me to think about what I truly cared about, and how I could use my business successes as a platform to help others. Going on that journey of discovery has been hugely positive for me, and was made even better when I signed up to B1G1 and received a call from their awesome Chairman Paul Dunn to say thank you for joining! 

This has been a great initiative for us all as a team, as not only are we even more incentivised than ever to make sure our clients win (and that’s saying something!) we are truly living our ethos, to help people to achieve their personal and professional dreams by winning the best awards in the world. And to know that when they do, they are already helping someone else to achieve their dream too.  

If you haven’t already found a way to share your joy and success in a way that can make someone else’s life a bit better I encourage you to take a look at the B1G1 website, read the stories and think about what truly connects to your heart and soul. If you could share your success in a way that would make a difference what would you do? 

And that leaves me with just one question…

Who wins, when you win?

Benefits of Winning The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise

Every year on The Queen’s Birthday, the Queen’s Awards for Enterprise award winners are announced.

Each winner will have had their own motivation for entering; recognition for an innovative product or service, to differentiate themselves from their competitors, recognition for their exporting success or simply for the prestige.

No matter the motivation for entering, every winner comes away knowing they are one of the best businesses in the UK.

WINNERS PERKS

Not only do you receive an invitation to Buckingham Palace, the Lord Lieutenant of your County will visit your office as a representative of The Queen. The representative will award the company with a Grant of Appointment and commemorative crystal bowl with the winner’s emblem.

This is a really fantastic opportunity to get all of your employees, stakeholders, family and friends involved for a real celebration and to be part of the presentation ceremony. You can also invite local journalists and photographers to document the event and get some valuable news coverage and PR, letting everyone know of your success!

Queen_s_Award_Ceremony-0086_seafront-reception

For the five years following the win, all winners are granted the use of the official Queen’s Awards for Enterprise winners emblem. The emblem represents prestige, notable achievement and is recognised globally. It’s a fantastic asset to use on your website, email signature, marketing materials and packaging.

Businesses who enter and unfortunately don’t win can still find the experience of entering beneficial. Unsuccessful entrants receive feedback, providing targets to work towards and outlining where they may need to focus to be successful next time around. This feedback isn’t just beneficial for re-entering but is often sound business advice to take forward and improve.

GROWING SUCCESS

Winners of The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise have reported improvements across the business;

  • 77% of winners have reported increased commercial value for the business
  • 73% of winning businesses have seen employee engagement increase
  • 73% of winners benefited from additional press coverage in local, national and industry press
  • 57% of International Trade winners received increased recognition from overseas

Most importantly, 85% of winners have said winning The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise have met or exceeded their expectations.

Like most awards, it’s how you respond and utilise a win that can determine how much success you achieve off the back of the win.

An award like The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise needs to be shouted about. It is a huge achievement and is a fantastic tool to win new customers, clients, contracts, stakeholders and for recruitment. It is also a great statement to say to your existing contacts ‘The Queen has recognised us as one of the best businesses in the UK!’

THE QUEEN’S AWARDS FOR ENTERPRISE

The Queens Award for Enterprise programme opens in May and deadlines in September.

If you think your business has what it takes to win The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise then get in touch! We will give you an impartial, honest consultation on your chances of winning and if you are eligible.
