FSB Herts ‘Training & Development Award Winner 2012’, Ashbourne Insurance was delighted to present the much competed ‘2013 FSB Training & Development Award’ to Crane & Staples Solicitors of Welwyn
It was presented on Thursday June 13th at a Gala Dinner at Shendish Manor, Hemel Hempstead in front of an audience of 280 finalists, judges and distinguished guests.
Independent insurance broker, Ashbourne decided to sponsor the event after amassing five business award titles (local, regional and national) in 2012. The 30+ year old family-run business has firsthand experience about the positive impact of winning awards and decided to become an ambassador to encourage Herts SMEs to enter awards in 2013 and beyond.
About the FSB Herts Business Awards and specifically as sponsor of the Training & Development Award, Peter explained: “We had the great honour of winning at last year’s awards and it most certainly helped raise Ashbourne’s profile with Herts residents and businesses; not only locally but in the whole of the county. The third hand party endorsement of our business that is achieved with publicity through prestigious awards is invaluable. As a judge and sponsor this year, we were looking for a business who displayed a clear strategy to enable their staff to be well trained and evidence of how this impacted their business commercially. Congratulations to Crane & Staples Solicitors for winning.”
Under Peter guidance in 2012, Ashbourne has won many prestigious business awards, including:
2013: The Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce: Small-Medium BUSINESS OF THE YEAR
2012: The FSB Herts Business Awards: Training & Development
2012: The Inspiring Hertfordshire Business Awards, Sarah Smits: Entrepreneur of the Year
2012: The British Chamber of Commerce Regional Awards Training & Development
2012: The Red Ribbon Family Awards: Customer First & Family Ambassador (National)
