Thursday 21st September was an exciting day for the Virtalent team. Virtalent had been nominated for a VA of the Year award 2017 for the Midlands region.
Co-Founder, Ellie Bekalo, attended the awards which featured as part of Business Growth show at Edgbaston Stadium.
Aside from the awards ceremony, it was a great opportunity to network with other small business owners, talk to the CEO of BeMyVa, John Palmer, and listen to great advice from many of the speakers at the event.
When the ceremony started, there were a tense few minutes of hearing feedback from the judges before hearing the outcome. The results were in, and we are delighted to say that Virtalent was named VA of the Year 2017 for the Midlands.
Ellie Bekalo said: “It was a lovely surprise to be named VA of the Year for the Midlands! Over the past 3 years, we have worked hard as a company to gain some recognition for the success we
have achieved. To be given this accolade by BeMyVA is the highest praise. I am very much looking forward to attending the national final in London.”
As winner of the Midlands region, Virtalent now goes forward to compete to win the VA of the Year Award 2017 for England, which takes place at The Mayfair Hotel in London.
