The Queen’s Award For Enterprise – Buckingham Palace Reception
Having been formally presented with our Queen’s Award on June 17th by Dame Jane Trotter, the final piece of the jigsaw was the visit to the Palace.
On July 14th, Steve Bull (Owner & CEO of Floortex) together with James Bull (Financial Director) attended Her Majesty The Queen’s Reception at Buckingham Palace.
The reception was an opportunity for all 2015 award winners to meet and be formally congratulated by members of the Royal family.
The reception was hosted by HM The Queen Elizabeth II and HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and also attended by The Duke of York, accompanied by Princess Eugenie of York, The Princess Royal, The Duke of Gloucester, The Duke of Kent, Princess Michael of Kent and Princess Alexandra, the Hon Lady Ogilvy.
Steve commented "It was a great honour to be a winner of such a renowned award and to be invited to this prestigious reception. Meeting the Queen and other members of the royal family was a great end to the whole awards process and a day we will never forget”.
With 3.2 million companies registered in the UK there were just 141 winners of the award in 2015 with only 20% of those entering being successful.
Steve concludes, "The announcement of our award has resulted in an amazing response from both customers and distribution partners located around the world, who have been delighted to hear of the accolade. Key markets such as the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan have a great affiliation with the Royal Family and the award is sure to increase our profile and help us with further expansion in the coming years.”
