always possible wins Gatwick Diamond Business Award

We were thrilled to have been chosen as a finalist in the Business of the Year up to £1m category at the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards 2022. Our CEO Richard Freeman, and Associate Emma Mills-Sheffield, donned their glad rags for the glittering Awards Ceremony at The Grand in Brighton last night.

The last two years have been incredibly difficult for businesses, especially around the Gatwick area. The ceremony was the first time the community has been able to get together, in-person, since 2019.

Now, we’re not brand new to awards nominations, having been finalists at the Brighton & Hove Independent Business Awards 2017, Brighton & Hove Business Awards 2019, and Sussex Business Awards 2021. But, we’re always the bridesmaid, never the bride. So we went along to the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards with no expectations, other than to meet other celebrated businesses and have a good time.

Competition in our category was stiff – we were up against two fantastic businesses: Cloud Voice & Data and MCA Consulting Engineers.

And then we heard, “the winner is… always possible“.
