On Friday 9th March,we put on our glad rags and spent our evening at St David’s Hotel at Cardiff Bay to celebrate local businesses. The night was a celebration of the pioneers of local business and brought together entrepreneurs, decision-makers and influencers in the business community in South Wales.
We were nominated for five awards, but in the end our Marketing Manager, Alice, was the deserving winner of the ‘Employee Of The Year’ Award; an award that recognises the hard work and determination that employees put into their work. Alice has been Local Link Magazine’s Marketing Manager, and Gemma’s right hand woman for two years. She is the backbone of the business, and from design to our digital platforms, Alice keeps our brand presented in the best way.
When asked how she felt about winning the award, Alice said ‘I feel very honoured and proud to be recognised for my hard work. I of course would like to thank the other half of the dream team – Gemma, for all the support she gives me.’
On the daily, Alice does her absolute best to keep the running of Local Link in ship-shape, whether that’s creating designs for our magazine, doing invoices for our clients. In the office, she keeps spirits high and supports the rest of the team with her hardworking and positive attitude. We couldn’t think of a more deserving winner than Alice, and we’re chuffed that she has been rightly commended for the hard work she does for us. We missed out on the win for our other nominations, but there was a lot of deserving winners on the night. A big well done to all the winners!
