We are delighted to announce that on Friday night at the Copthorne Hotel, Managing Director and Owner of Klick Business Solutions, Andrea Childs, was awarded the Mike Holder Award for Business of the Year at Dudley Council’s annual Mayor’s Ball and Civic Awards.
The whole Klick team was in attendance to celebrate this fantastic achievement and Andrea was keen to immediately recognise the continued hard work and talent of her staff as a catalyst for this success.
Klick Business Solutions has been operating since Andrea created the company in 2007 and under her guidance it has developed into a thriving small business with a strong number of valuable clients across multiple industries. The intense dedication and many weekends of tender writing put in over the past nine years has recently been receiving the recognition it deserves following Friday night’s achievement and Klick’s Customer Service Award at the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Awards 2015.
The night itself was a hugely enjoyable one with a significant amount of money raised for The Mayor of Dudley’s five superb chosen charities all with great causes within the Dudley Borough. These charities were West Midlands Lupus Group, The Hope Centre, Leukaemia Unit Appeal Fund for Russell’s Hall Hospital, More Mascots Please and The What? Centre.
Of course, there were a number of other worthy winners on the night who had their hard work and contribution within the Dudley area commended. The winners for each award were as follows:
The Duncan Edwards Award for Sport – Zara-Jade Turton
The Cedric Hardwicke Award for Arts – The Fizzogs (www.thefizzogs.com)
The Frank Foley Award for Community Spirit – Rachael Gardener (welovecarers.org)
The Thomas Attwood Award for Education – Linda Perkins (Head Teacher at St Mary’s CE Primary School)
The William Shenstone Award for Environment – Roy Burgess
The Mayor’s ‘Pride of Dudley Award’ – Raj Kaur (uniquefitness4ladiesonly.co.uk)
The Mike Holder Award for Business of the Year is a prestigious one that Andrea feels humbled to be presented given the range of fantastic local businesses in contention for this honour. It feels particularly special for Andrea given that Mike Holder was actually her first Klick Business Solutions client. Mr Holder joint owned Cougar Monitoring and showed great faith in Andrea by giving her Klick’s first break in the tender writing world and also spread the word about the valuable work we do. For that Andrea is eternally grateful and we really do wish that Mike could have seen the prosperous Wordsley business we have become.
It may be cliché but it is true to say that the work we do at Klick Business Solutions is a huge team effort and led from the front by Andrea Childs and Office Manager Lyn Kimpton, every member of staff gets the support they need from the team to produce the best quality work they can.
It is this tireless commitment to high standards that has led to the recent commendations that have come our way and we have no intention of stopping there! The hard work continues week by week as we look to further enhance our reputation and quality of tender writing services.
We believe passionately that our clients feel the benefit of the close working partnerships we form and the standards of service we deliver as a result. So if your company are struggling to win bids for the contracts you desire, or if you simply don’t have time to manage the process, please do not hesitate to contact us via any of the methods detailed in the ‘Contact’ tab of our website for more information or a quote.
From Andrea herself and everyone at Klick Business Solutions, we would like to thank the Mayor of Dudley, Councillor Steve Waltho, for a fantastically organised and enjoyable event and we are very proud to now be able to call ourselves ‘Double Award Winning’ tender writers.
