VA of the Year-Scotland-Official Runner Up!
VAVelocity has been awarded runner up at the VA of the year-Scotland awards!
Well after a night of very little sleep and a long journey down to Glasgow, being judged as runner up at the VA of the Year Awards - Scotland came as a huge surprise. To say I am over the moon would be an understatement.
Initially, to be shortlisted for this award was such a huge achievement for a fledgling business such as mine. Two and a half years in I am very proud to have made VAVelocity what it is. This has been achieved through dedication, hard work and, of course, my amazing clients. I was also honoured to be shortlisted amongst such industry veterans such as Lyndsey Gilchrist of ASAP Admin and Michelle Smith of Value Add Business Solutions
The announcement was made at the Business Women Scotland Conference at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow on Thursday October 2nd which included speakers such as Nicky Hambleton-Jones and Vanessa Collingridge. After an afternoon of industry experts imparting their knowledge to help us succeed in business it was then onto the awards. I can truly say that my nerves were jangling at this point and it came as a huge surprise to hear my name read out as runner up. It was with sheer delight that I accepted this award, even whilst I am writing this I am still pleased as punch.
The awards were sponsored by BeMyVA whose role within the industry is to raise awareness of the role of a Virtual Assistant and to provide a register of VA’s to enable businesses’ and VA’s to connect and work together.
