Blue Orchid Business Advisor Presented with a Special Achievement Award
Following his recent retirement one of Blue Orchids most respected and well-loved advisors Marcus Cole has been presented with a special achievement award at an event held to celebrate the Greater Birmingham & Solihull Enterprise for Success programme on Tuesday 24th September at the new Princes Trust
To an audience which included a number of past clients who Marcus had supported and mentored in starting their own successful business, Fran Hall of Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council presenting the award, read out a small number of the many glowing tributes that both the programme and Blue Orchid have received praising his efforts, such as that from Gary Jakeman of Pied Piper Pest & Wildlife Management who told us ‘Without Marcus’s help I honestly don’t think we would be where we are today.
He has the passion and determination to ensure you succeed and through his excellent advice and knowledge we as a company have grown and now work with some of the largest Blue-Chip Companies not only in England but around the UK’.
Fran herself told the audience ‘Even though Marcus retired in 2017 I am regularly asked if he is still working with the programme’.
As a result of some mild subterfuge from his former colleagues Marcus himself knew nothing of the award and despite being retired had accepted the invite to the event solely to come and along and support the programme and so was taken by surprise in finding himself honoured in this way.
Peter Daniel, Area Manager for the Midlands summed up the thoughts of the entire Blue Orchid team to the award, ‘Marcus we all aspire to be as respected and supportive as you and I am proud to have worked with you.’
