December in the South of France and we seem to have been busy with nominations and awards, particularly for me – what a wonderful start to the festive season.
Woman of the Month – I am delighted to be the Riviera Woman of the Month for December. Anna Fill, the Editor of this wonderful website interviewed me and managed to send me a desert island and find out what makes me smile. You can read more of the interview here
Finalist – Riviera Business Person of the Year – I was delighted to have been nominated for the Riviera Business Club, Business Person of the Year 2013. As a finalist I was asked to prepare a presentation concentrating on my business goals, vision and strategy. It really focused my mind on what I need to be doing to ensure that I continue to deliver a unique and free service to my clients buying property here on the French Riviera. Sometimes we are so close to our business that we don’t have the time to step back and take a look at the bigger picture and see where we can make changes to add that extra ‘something’ for our clients. The company that finally won the award, a local villa rental company, really deserved the prize as they are expanding rapidly.
It’s now mid December and the round of Christmas parties and networking is in full swing. I am always so pleased to be recognised by the International business community here and look forward to seeing many of you at these Christmas events.
