Business Excellence Awards 2022 – Best Virtual Assistant Services Provider – UK

business excellence awards

The Global Excellence Awards were launched by Acquisition International magazine in 2016 to showcase the companies and individuals that are committed to innovation, business growth, and providing the very best products and services to clients across a wide range of industries. We have been awarded “Best Virtual Assistant Services Provider 2022 – UK”.

The awards are selected by a team at Acquisition International who look at company performance over a given period of time, expertise within the industry, sector or region, previous accolades won and client testimonials. Recipients are selected through a merit-based system, via the research carried out rather than external nominations. The criteria requires that there is evidence of significant achievement and a clear commitment to innovation in a given field, for a company to pass the shortlisting stage and go on to be recognised.

Our accolade will be featured in Acquisition International which is a monthly magazine by AI Global Media Ltd for professionals, business advisers and service providers.

Influential Businesswoman Awards

What they say about this award: While there is still work to be done as far as gender equality goes, recognising influential women, especially in male-dominated fields, is a good step forward. The Influential Businesswoman Awards sole objective is to encourage and support women as they further participate in entrepreneurial endeavours as it is our belief that their participation is vital in ensuring a balanced and forward- thinking economy.

Awards Coordinator Jessie Wilson had this to say about the winners: “All of the Influential Businesswomen are not only doing innovative work in their respective fields, but also creating an equal-opportunity narrative for future businesswomen everywhere. To all our winners, I offer my sincere congratulations and we wish you luck for the future!”
