Back to France June 2019

Saturday 8 June 2019

Yesterday I found myself heading off for a flight to Paris, just three days after returning from my daughter’s wedding in the south near Carcassonne. This time my destination was just outside Paris at St Germain-en-Laye.

I had a slight feeling of trepidation as it was the first time that I was meeting the communications team for YRSA Communications, part of the newly formed business established by my client of two years, Yves Romestan. So it helped that having had breakfast at the very civilised Fortnum & Mason’s champagne bar at Heathrow’s T5 my lovely waiter slipped me a truffle I’d been eyeing with my bill.

GTM wins best big business award

Toast of Surrey Award
Toast of Surrey Award

“Yet again Carol Miller’s support as our PR consultant has proved to be a worthwhile investment. Having ensured she understands the many facets of our business, she was able to combine that with her PR skills to evaluate the award criteria and then write entries that were relevant and made an impact. As a result we won the Best Big Business award and were shortlisted in the two other categories we entered.”

Congratulations to Carol Miller Media client Global Travel Management who won the 2016 Toast of Surrey Award for best business with a turnover above £5m.
Knowing the company’s high quality service and incredible enthusiasm, motivated by the very dynamic leadership of @GlobalTravelMgt Managing Director Scott Pawley, I believe GTM’s success was well deserved.
Entering business awards such as @TOSawards demands time and energy but they can bring high internal and external rewards, while the experience of winning is an incredible morale boost and has been a key part of the GTM PR programme.
Scott says: “Winning the award shows that, as a company, what we have is something special because winning this accolade was a team effort. For me personally, it was the most rewarding night of my life.
In addition, this year’s award success will be something of a kitemark on our business credentials within the trade as well as for stakeholders and clients.“
