Alison’s Awards Experience

What being a finalist did for me


Why should you nominate?

“the ability to refer to being a finalist on social media and within business profiles has been important to help in nominations for other awards. But I would say the contacts I made and friendships formed with the other finalists has been the real business value for me.”
