NEWS - National, regional and local business award acknowledgment for Alchemy VA
Posted on 28th September 2020 at 11:36
The Alchemy VA family are celebrating again this week as we reach the finals in the fourth business awards programme this year.
No stranger to awards recognition, our founder, Suzy Sanders, has been recognised in the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards 2020 as a finalist in the Businesswoman of the Year category - sponsored by BHIB Insurance Brokers.
Also this month, Suzy received national acknowledgement and beat off over 2,600 applicants to become a regional finalist in the Great British Entrepreneur Awards - Family Business Entrepreneur of the Year. In August she experienced more local credit after being named a finalist at the Northamptonshire SME Business Awards, and the whole Alchemy VA team are up for ‘Best New Franchise’ in the UK-wide Approved Franchise Association Awards.
“It’s not often that I’m left speechless but today I am. The whole team at Alchemy VA have been working relentlessly to support our clients and each other this year. I recognise and celebrate the attitude, mindset and astounding talent we have within our growing family business, and to be acknowledged by such a prestigious awards programme in my home county really is phenomenal.
“After all the pains and challenges 2020 has brought, I’m absolutely delighted to have this opportunity to pause, reflect and celebrate all our achievements together with our growing virtual assistant team.” – Suzy Sanders
Alchemy VA’s virtual home is in Northamptonshire, with Hubs open across the county and more recently in the North West.
We have been proud finalists in the Northamptonshire Business Excellence Awards before – in the Innovation Award category (for our Virtual Assistant franchise model) last year.
“They don’t come along every day, but every so often the business community gains individuals who carve out a legacy that influences, evolves or sometimes even defines an industry. A person with vision who can lead and inspire others to deliver on their dreams and business objectives. This award will celebrate the business leaders of Northamptonshire, who show passion and have made substantial impacts in their fields.”
“I’m amazed by Alchemy’s recent achievements, but I’m not surprised! I started my Alchemy VA franchise in January and the efforts Suzy and Paul go to in strengthening the business from all angles is phenomenal. They’ve been pivotal to my success in becoming a proud and fulfilled Virtual Assistant business owner. I’m keeping everything crossed for the finals!”
– Sarah Damani, Senior Alchemy VA Hub Manager
