A week later I was told that we were one of two businesses up for the award. I bought the tickets for the awards gala, enjoyed an outstanding meal with Michelle at The Butchart Gardens, and… received the Honourable Mention. Although I would have preferred to have taken home the Crystal Award, I was proud that IdeaZone was getting some recognition for the community service work that we have been doing.
A couple of weeks ago I was informed that we were nominated for another business award. This time it is through the Victoria Chamber of Commerce. I am still unclear as to who nominated us but I am looking forward to finding out how this will play out. Getting the recognition in Victoria is fantastic and we are looking forward to the win this time.
Wish us luck.
