The Blue Ribbon Awards, sponsored by the London East
Training & Enterprise Council (LETEC), were held at the London Arena in Docklands on
March 26, and attended by 1,200 guests in penguin suits and evening gowns. Now in their
8th year, the awards recognise businesses that are outstanding in the competitive arena.
We were delighted that our Internet strategy and skill in
building expertise helped us win the award for Best New Company. It was also
exciting to have the intranet site we built for the Redbridge Education Authority
recognised in the award for Business & Education in Partnership, along with all of the
volunteer work and IT training hours our dedicated staff puts in.
So, we thought you'd want to know: your ISP, LEOnet, is a
winner. Well chosen, you!
