VOW Awards – the season for giving

The shortlists for the categories have been announced for the VOW Awards taking place on December 5

Helen Wade, marketing director, said: “We believe that there are huge benefits to entering awards. Simply going through the process of putting submissions together can really bring home to people the amazing work that they have done and the advances that they have made. It’s great motivation and builds self-esteem and can go a long way in earning the appreciation of colleagues. To be shortlisted gives a great buzz and to win is just fantastic recognition. There’s loads of good PR to be had on social media, locally and throughout the industry and of course, when talking to customers, suppliers and prospects it’s great to point to the acknowledgement of excellence that has been given to you.”
VOW has had an outstanding year on the awards front with recognition for the company and various individuals at EOPA, The BOSS Industry Awards, ECMOD, The CRN Channel Awards, The Sheffield Business Awards, The Northern E-Commerce Awards and the Stationers Company Awards.
But now, with the season of goodwill upon us, it is the turn of the UK’s leading business supplies wholesaler to give rather than receive. At its forthcoming Green Light at the Chateau Impney, Bromsgrove on December 5th, VOW will be announcing the winners of its own awards, which are presented to dealers, suppliers and account managers.
