We got to be Guests at Football Brisbane's 2016 Gala Awards Night!
Everything has a circle of life, even a trophy, according to a very reliable source, of course. We’ve all seen the Lion King...
An award begins its life as an idea. A dream. A whisper of future achievement, sitting quietly behind a tonne of hard work. It isn’t a conscious thought – most award winners live and breathe what they’re good at with an intrinsic motivation – an inner passion that burns like fire and propels them to achieve.
While those people are working hard, studying hard, or playing hard, the team at AwardsandTrophies.com.au are preparing for the outcomes of their efforts.
And so the life of the trophy begins.
We, like proud parents, are there from the beginning – ordering the best quality products from our suppliers, receiving them from their couriers with a smile, unpacking them with a sense of order, distributing them carefully to the production team where they get to meet their engravers. In the meantime, we set up engraving graphics with creative flair, proof-read the words with an eagle-eye, and match-make the right award with the right engraving.
The dispatch team uses gentle hands to put them all together and we all wave encouragingly with misty-eyed pride as our trophies leave the nest en route to their deserving recipients who will one day, stand in some sort of ceremony, to receive their amazing award and accolades for their achievements.
We are very rarely there to witness this final part of the union, and love receiving photographs and words of gratitude after the fact.
Earlier this week, our General Manager, Andre and our Sales Manager, Jeremy, were invited to attend a fantastic awards presentation for Football Brisbane 2016 players. AwardsandTrophies.com.au were proud sponsors and suppliers of all of their season’s medals, trophies and awards and as a thank you, they asked us to witness the end result to see the joy and smiles at the end of a very busy year, which, of course, gave us all joy and smiles as well.
Andre and Jeremy were fortunate enough to be seated with the President of Football Brisbane, the CEO of Football Qld, Brisbane Roar’s Golden Boot recipient and other valued sponsors.
We’d like to congratulate all of Football Brisbane’s winners and players, coaches and refs, managers and administrators, for a fantastic 2016 season, and a wonderful awards night! Thank you for having us!
We look forward to another amazing year in 2017 and hope you enjoy a well-deserved rest in the off-season.
