Entrepreneurship is a team sport
I am thrilled to have won these awards as a female entrepreneur. To quote the words of one of my mentors, entrepreneurship is a team sport. These awards recognize the fantastic work that my whole team, Team AO, does in serving our wonderful clients all around the world. Our company values include Being Helpful, Delivering Excellence and Making a Positive Difference. These awards show that we are living those values and of that I am immensely proud.
Winners were celebrated during a virtual awards ceremony on Thursday, January 13, 2022. Although we couldn’t celebrate in person in Las Vegas as originally planned, the Stevie Awards organisers did a great job recognizing everyone’s achievements with red carpet photos and interviews as well as recorded acceptance speeches.
