"Well planned evening, great to have a live band, food and service brilliant and a dedicated bar person made drinks ordering simple. The venue was beautiful and nice that supporters were able to watch at home via the live stream. Really proud to be involved as finalists and a great platform to raise awareness of our charity".
"The Evas have gone from strength to strength and are clearly one of the top awards for women in business in the country. The whole Evas experience whether as an applicant or sponsor is excellent, the application and interview process gives entrants a brilliant opportunity to consider and review their progress and success.
As a sponsor I have received a great deal of publicity and promotion, if you’re thinking of getting involved in Evas 2015 just do it!"
"The venue and set up really had the WOW factor, which made it feel even more special. We had a wonderful evening and my family were able to watch the live stream in Dublin."
"Entering the Eva Awards has been a very enjoyable experience. I have met some lovely people and had an amazing night at the awards. The Evas have given me more motivation and confidence to develop my business further. I can’t wait until next years!"
"A thoroughly enjoyable experience, totally exceeded my expectations and my guests thought the whole event was simply superb."
"What a fabulous night we had. It was a great evening and fantastic for the Sally’s Cottages team to go out on a jolly together, a really good team building evening for us. We have decided we should do it more often. We loved all the outfits and the sheer splendour of it all. Thanks so much for the opportunity to be part of it. We’re already looking forward to the next one!"
Every stage of entering the EVA's has been fantastic for my business; I'm focused, implementing quickly, and really thinking about what I want and where I am going now. Winning Small Business of the Year has been such a wonderful affirmation for me, and has given my clients added confidence in choosing me as their photographer.
I won an EVA! Wow, what an accolade. I was thrilled to be recognised for the efforts I put into networking in the North West of England. Supporting members of my networks is important to me as an individual and to my team here at Ellison Printing. Our aim here is to help, to make lives easier - connecting good businesses via successful networking is one way in which we can do this.
Winning an Award is an achievement that has many benefits. Personally, it give you a boost, a pat on the back. For your business it raises your profile, gives you good PR via newspapers, radio, company literature, gets your customers and acquaintances talking. It's a 'feel good', it's EVA Fever!
The Awards Evening itself was flawless, well made plans well executed. A great opportunity to meet and network (I would say that!) with like minded people across the North West, all of whom are keen to continually improve themselves and their business(es). There's such a buzz in the room, so much excitement and it's so fantastic to be part of a winning community.
We were absolutely delighted to win an EVA Award for customer service at this year’s EVA Award ceremony. It meant a lot to us, as customer service is at the forefront of what we do at Barrica and it was enormously gratifying to have this recognised and voted for by our wonderful customers.
As Barrica is an all woman team, operating is a very male dominated industry, winning an EVA Award was extra special and it generated a lot of interest and valuable publicity. We were featured three times on Radio Lancashire that week and had some excellent write ups in the local press.
In short, it’s been a fantastic experience all round!
We were extremely proud to win Inspirational Woman award this year after being shortlisted as finalists in this category and Small Business. The Eva awards are a fantastic way of celebrating women in business in the North west and we were honoured to be finalists amongst such a high calibre of entrants. As a charity the awards means a great deal to us as it acts as a platform for raising the profile of Unique Kidz and Co and the barriers faced by parents of disabled children who want to return to work. The entry and judging process is a great way of reflecting on the achievements of your business and your future goals. I would encourage anyone thinking of entering to just go for it .The awards event itself is an amazing celebration and fantastic event to attend we were over the moon to be winners for a second year.
