We’re incredibly proud to announce that we came away as the winner of the SME Business of the Year at Doncaster Chamber Business Awards held virtually last week. In our latest blog, ORB managing director Stewart Olsen, shares what it was like to win this sought-after accolade.
Doncaster Chamber Business Awards celebrates the brilliant achievements of local businesses and is always an evening to look forward to. Although it was a digital ceremony this year, it certainly didn’t disappoint! We were completely over the moon when ORB won SME Business of the Year at the 22nd awards of its kind.
It was a glittering virtual evening of celebration and a joy to interact with so many members of the Doncaster business community who were in their glad rags despite being at home. Winning this award really recognises how far we have come since being established in 2018, our year-on-year growth, our position as a leading agency in Yorkshire and our social value contributions to Doncaster’s community.
Also making the event extra special this year was the fact that not only were the businesses of Doncaster up for awards but so were the local NHS.
It was also an honour for us to sponsor four NHS Recognition Awards particularly after such a tumultuous year for our healthcare service and how staff have continued to support the community in such trying times.
Well done to Dr Ken Agwuh from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who picked up the award for Compassionate Care, Adam Tingle from Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust who was named the Unsung Hero, the Combined Planned & Unplanned Community Nursing Team from Rotherham and Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust who won Community Hero award and Team Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals for their Outstanding Contribution.
A huge round of applause must also go to the winner of the Excellence in People Development, Concorde BGW Group - another category we sponsored this year.
Congratulations to all of the winners across the awards which you can find here.
Well done to all of our friends, colleagues and inspirations in the Doncaster business community who were part of the awards and thank you to Doncaster Chamber for hosting such a fantastic evening for us all this year. We shall see you for the next one, where we’ll hopefully be able to raise a glass to each other in person!
