Yes, that's right, we won!!
Thursday evening saw The Derbyshire Times Business Awards 2018 held in Chesterfield, a black tie event held at the impressive college, catered for by their excellent students.
We nearly didn't make it though. Mrs Rev and I left in plenty of time, hotel booked suit pressed and ready to go, well nearly. The suit didn't make it to the car and this wasn't noticed until we arrived at the hotel in Chesterfield!!
Now i am not one to point the finger of blame at anyone and always take full responsibility for any mistakes made, however, it was totally Mrs Rev's fault. Mrs Rev actually had it in her hand as we were leaving the house.
So after a search of the internet and a mad dash across Chesterfield we bought a suit. We must have looked a sight as we burst into the shop bought a suit, shirt, tie and belt in approximately 45 seconds.
But we made it and we were so glad we did. We could have burst with pride as the nominations were read out. Five companies had been shortlisted in our award and host, Jessica Cunningham (Apprentice 2017) read a little background on each one. Just hearing our name was enough for us.
And the winner of 2018 New Business of the Year is..........REVILO IMAGES.
We couldn't quite believe it, this little business that we started less than a year ago had only gone and won! We were up on stage for photographs with the host and sponsor and whisked away for a video interview in the back room.
All in all a wonderful evening (despite the bad start) and Mrs Rev and i had a great time, obviously the icing on the cake being a trophy to take home.
Once again we have to thank our wonderful team here at Revilo and heres to 2019 as the next chapter in our journey begins.
