Winning an IAB Award is excellent recognition of your hard work and commitment and can also be a real benefit to your career. Alison Edward MIAB, winner of the Bookkeeper of the Year Award 2016, said: “I was thrilled to win IAB Bookkeeper of the Year, it was an honour and a surprise against stiff competition. It has really given me confidence to grow my business, and the recognition from your peers and clients makes all the hard work worthwhile. There was coverage in local press of my win and it got lots of attention on social media. I’m sure it has helped me gain clients in the last year as it gives me a little extra something over my competitors!
“The thing that makes these awards special is you can’t nominate yourself. I sent my clients an email telling them about the awards, which is totally out of character for me, but I thought I had nothing to lose. I was delighted that several took the time to send in nominations. I would highly recommend anyone takes the initiative and lets clients or employers know about the awards – like me, you never know what might happen.”
Natasha Penny FIAB AIAAP, winner of the Accountant of the Year Award 2016, added: “It had an amazing and positive impact on my business; we have had increased workload and are able to boast the title ‘Accountant of the Year’ on our own website, marketing material, etc., which makes me very proud. I even have it written on my business card. I would encourage all IAB members to enter, and to attend the prestigious awards ceremony if they are given the chance, as it is such a great experience to be part of both personally and for the reputation of any business.”
The evening will also celebrate the achievements of the winners of our top centre awards.
