When things are moving at a faster pace and multiple challenges are being thrown your way all at the same time, it’s easy to overlook the positives in your life, especially if you have a goal set in your sights. Yet, at events like last night’s M.E.N’s Business of the Year Awards, you can’t fail to sit up and take note of the wonderful achievements – not just of your own company – but the businesses that work all around you.
To win the award in our category was a fantastic feeling although I doubt there will ever be a time when I won’t get a kick from seeing my team’s hard work recognised! When I heard the news, the fast pace I mentioned earlier slowed down just a little, as I took some time to sit by the window, looking out and smiling. It’s moments like this when I can reflect on just how far UKFast has come.
It’s funny to think we started out with a few servers in someone else’s data centre yet are now building our own facilities. Combine that with the move from City Tower to UKFast Campus and now the latest venture in Verbier, it seems fitting that the team responsible for winning this award will soon be able to come out and enjoy the snow.
Well done to all of you at UKFast, and to the other great North West businesses who took home awards last night. You deserve it!
