One Good Turn...The Winners!

We are pleased to announce the winners of the hgkc/DISCsimple One Good Turn... business plan competition for 2021!

Survive and Thrive winner – Vicky Gardner, ZiaBia

Supercharge Your Team winner – Michael and Jennifer Potts, Mrs Potts Chocolate House

    Both winners submitted inspiring and innovative entries which in the view of the panel are “doable” and exciting, and at hgkc and DiscSimple we are very excited to be able to help them on their way.

    After rigorous scoring, the following were also shortlisted:

    The Judges said “It is inspiring to see that despite all the challenges the world has faced of late that there are so many incredible businesses who are adapting and creating new ideas for the future and having the courage to enter a competition to implement their innovation. People who are prepared to dare to dream and confident enough to seek the help to make those plans come to life. 

    There is a clear message here - that even on days when a business might feel they are just having too many challenges thrown at them, somewhere within all of us is a spark of genius! And there is hope, because if only half the entrants to the One Good Turn... annual competition achieve what they are aiming for, the business world will be significantly impacted. Talent is everywhere and we are so pleased to recognise and reward businesses who strive to achieve more and won’t be beaten, by anything!”

    Our winners said:

    "Very excited and humbled to be one of the winners in the One Good Turn competition. Just wanted to say I think it is a brilliant idea to offer this competition in such a difficult time and very much looking forward to working with hgkc in 2021 to help propel Mrs Potts Chocolate House to even greater heights”, Michael Potts

    “I couldn’t speak, so shocked and now so happy”, Vicky Gardner

    To ensure a fair outcome, each entrant was scored on the 5 dimensions set out in the competition guidelines, and then judged independently. Scorers were allocated entries from applicants they did not previously know.

    hgkc was born from the realisation that together our combined practical experience and knowledge can offer our clients a broader, deeper and richer experience that will deliver better results faster.
