The sun was shining, the stage was lit and the champagne was at the ready! All that was left was to sit and wait for the moment that the winner was announced, and it didn’t let us down! Our very own Caron Vetter, MD of The Belmore Centre and Whitethorn Fields MediClinic in Stoke Mandeville won the prestigious Thomas International Business Leader of the Year award at the Buckinghamshire Business Awards 2014 which took place last night (Thursday 15th May).
Caron was competing against extremely high competition, with other successful and reputable businesses within Buckinghamshire short-listed as finalists. Even after accepting this prestigious award Caron appeared to be in shock that she was even put through as a finalist, let alone to have won the award! Speaking with Caron after the event she told us what it meant to her, ‘I think I am still in shock! It was an honour to even be nominated, but to win is incredible. To me, being a leader is separate to simply being the boss. It is about being able to communicate well with your team, to know them on a personal level and be able to lead with experience. Equally I pride myself in being a good listener and taking on board opinions and suggestions from my staff’.
All we can say is Well Done Caron. It comes as no surprise to us here that you are the recipient of this award. Your hard work, determination and ability to lead is clear for us all to see within the day to day running of the businesses. Your individuality and unique business mind will continue to drive your work force to new heights and is a what puts you in front of all the rest.
Congratulations from all at Whitethorn Fields MediClinic and The Belmore Centre.
Caron Vetter – inspiring a generation of hard working business minded individuals, determined to succeed
