And the winner is…
Rory Bremner, Sir Ranulph Fiennes, Simon Pegg, Julie Walters, Dick van Dyke and Eddie Izzard â€“ itâ€™s not the cast of this yearâ€™s Celebrity Big Brother. In fact, it was the National Green Deal & ECO Awards 2015.
To cut a long story short, we were delighted with our evening. The headlines were two award wins for Data & Software Company of the Year and Installer Certification Body of the Year, as well as two further runners-up trophies in the Assessor Certification Body of the Year and Training Organisation of the Year categories.
Itâ€™s a privilege to get both awards and they represent areas of the business in which we’ve made a special effort to invest during the last year. Weâ€™re known as a leading assessor certification body and we used this track record and experience to inform the development of our installer schemes. Software provision has always been a high priority for the business â€“ itâ€™s one of the best ways to support you to perform your jobs compliantly and efficiently. Weâ€™re delighted that our work is paying off and hope our efforts are making your lives easier!
The trophies are being proudly displayed at Stroma HQ in Castleford alongside the award for Training Organisation of the Year which we brought home in 2014. One award in 2014, a brace in 2015 â€“ what odds on a hat-trick win next year? Thatâ€™s certainly what weâ€™ll be aiming for when the nominations are announced.
Our Sales Manager, Stuart Oakes was on hand to present the award for National Green Deal & ECO Advisor/Assessor of the Year. The lucky winner was Agnes Czako from the Sustainable Home Survey Company. Huge congratulations to Agnes for her achievement.
We were delighted to welcome some of our clients to join us on the evening including A&M, Tempo, Saint Gobain, WiseMove, Home Survey Reports, HelpLink and DWA. There were also many more clients and partners in attendance and nominated in other award categories. Weâ€™d like to congratulate all members who were nominated and collected awards of your own.
The Green Deal & ECO Awards are a hugely important event for the industry. Thatâ€™s why we sponsored categories in each regional awards show as well as the national ceremony. We wanted to support the extraordinary work youâ€™re all doing at a local level and meet as many assessors, installers and businesses face-to-face. We had a great time doing it and the national awards was the perfect evening to round off a great year. Thanks to Gary Braybrooke and his team at the Green Deal & ECO Awards for organising all the superb events.
A special thank you to all our members for your support and membership over the past year. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us develop our certification schemes, software and training courses. Weâ€™ll never stop improving and thereâ€™s lots to come from Stroma in the second half of the year so thank you once again for being with us.
