Gifts From Hand Picked Receives Business of the Year Award!
Tuesday, 8 October 2013 | Admin
Though we've been keeping it under our hats lately, you may or may not be aware that Gifts from Handpicked made it on to the shortlist for Best Online Business award at the Mumpreneur Awards 2013. We had high hopes of taking the prize but did not want to make too much noise until we had a result to report! Well, the dream has now become a reality and Gifts from Handpicked has been given the supreme honour of WINNING the accolade, taking away the gold prize.
The grand announcement was made at Mumpreneur's annual conference in Birmingham at the end of September, an event which has been put together to highlight and draw focus on the number of highly respected businesses that have thrived from humble beginnings. From over 1500 amazing participants, getting to just be nominated was a thrill in itself for the business, which has now been running since 2008.
To come this far in only five years is a fantastic moment for the team, and an esteemed organisation to be involved with.
Mumpreneur itself has been running since 2009, specialising in helping small businesses blossom on to bigger things. As the catchy title denotes, the group provide a blossoming support network for mums starting out their own businesses, giving them a leg up the ladder, and an army of determined mothers to give advice.
Now, Natalie, the founder of Gifts from Handpicked can certainly say she has prime placing in that army!
Going alongside some of Gifts from Handpick's other accolades such as design awards, TV spots, a dazzling selection of testimonials and a glowing reputation, to win an award based on business is a new turning point for Gifts from Handpicked, with the gold award taking pride and placement on the front of the website.
A company spokesman said of the news that "receiving an award from the very people who understand our business the most is one of the best compliments to ever receive".
