Leicestershire business celebrates national award success

A business from Countesthorpe is celebrating success after winning at the Business Success Recognition Awards, at the weekend.

Paragon Sales Solutions scooped the Business Growth category and were among 13 winners selected from hundreds of nominations across the UK.

The glittering ceremony returned for its second year to The Eastside Rooms in Birmingham on Saturday (June 3rd) and hosted by award-winning MC Dave Sharpe.

Founded in 2018 by sales trainer and author Rob Spence, Paragon Sales Solutions provides an affordable and effective outsourced sales and marketing solution to businesses of all sizes, and from all sectors.

Rob said of his award win:

“It was a truly tough category with some excellent businesses listed for the awards and in my eyes we are all winners!

“Since our inception, especially over the last 12-18 months, we have worked really hard as a team to grow our business and to support more and more businesses. Our motivations and ambitions as a business are more focused around our team, the clients we represent and the results we generate for them. We believe that it is these elements that have led us to grow so rapidly.

“Looking back on our journey, it has been a fast-paced five years of business. From starting the business on my own on a desk in the corner of my bedroom with just £300 to my name, we now employ nine people, occupy fantastic office space in the Leicestershire countryside and are once again pushing on for another record-breaking financial year.

“My congratulations and thanks go to everyone involved in the awards. Running a business is never easy and is full of hurdles, challenges and, at times, frustration, yet I believe these awards were able to bring together business owners and entrepreneurs from all walks of life and allowed a celebration of success, reminding us all that business is done better, together.”

Awards judges were Ian Dickson, an international motivational speaker and award-winning business executive coach and mentor; Sam Bearfoot, the CEO Creativity Mentor to some of the most successful people in the online space and William Seymour, Earl of Yarmouth, co-owner of multi-international award-winning St Maur elderflower liqueur, handcrafted in Alcester.

The evening was organised by Stacey Calder, from Leamington Spa, the founder, leader and editor of the Business Success Network and Magazine.

Stacey said:

“What an amazing night of support, fun and recognition. A huge congratulations to not just the winners, but to all the finalists in the room. It takes courage to put yourself out there and to make the finals from over 350 nominations is an incredible achievement.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank the incredible team I have around me, national awards like this don’t just happen and I’m proud to use small businesses within the network to form such a great events team.

“I created these awards because every business owner has a story to share and awards are a great opportunity for business owners to create more visibility as well as gain the recognition they deserve. When you are self-employed it can be a lonely place working on your own and I’m a firm believer in finding your cheerleaders. The Business Success Recognition Awards helps you find them in abundance.”

Planning is already under way for next year’s awards for which nominations open on January 1st.
