Business Awards Finalist: Exeter Living Awards and Express and Echo Business Awards 2018
We are in a particularly sunny mood here at Five Zero, partly because of the glorious weather last week, but mostly owing to our recent business award nominations!
Last Thursday we attended the glittering Exeter Living Awards night – having made it to the finals of the Business Services Category. It was a fantastic evening spent with friends at Exeter University’s Great Hall, enjoying some fine dining and entertainment, and hearing from the many inspiring local companies.
It was lovely to celebrate the achievements of fellow Exeter businesses who are each doing impressive work in their categories, from Education to Food and Drink, Retail to Creative and Technology and Innovation. The awards are an opportunity to support the business community and encourage budding brands to grow and evolve.
We were up against some pretty tough competition, and although we didn’t win the category (congratulations IT Champions!), we came away feeling more motivated and passionate than ever to continue growing in our sector.
Next up in our lively social calendar is the Express and Echo Business Awards! We are extremely proud to be a finalist in the Business Growth of the Year (one-25 employees) category which looks for triumphs in the development of innovative products or services, expansion into new markets or areas of business activity or a proven track record of commercial success and growth. Five Zero will come under the scrutiny of an impressive judging panel which encompasses experts from across the business, hospitality and automotive industries.
The pressure is certainly on, however 2017 was truly a landmark year for our agency. We won exciting new clients from across the South West, Europe and North America, and welcomed two additional team members to the Five Zero family. Most recently, our incredible Anna Boyce has been promoted to Account Director after only one year in the business, playing an integral role in supporting client accounts and new business.
With all this growth and business awards nominations under our belt, we cannot wait for what the year ahead brings.
