WE are delighted to announce that our Managing Director Nicky Cooksley has won the Best Woman in Business Award at the Dorset Echo Industry Awards.

Friday night’s awards saw businesses from across the DT area join together at the HIX Academy in Weymouth College, for a celebration of “sparkling customer service, innovation and hard work.”

Mrs Cooksley was one of three finalists in the Best Woman in Business Award category, sponsored by Permanent Makeup by Claire Louise.

The success follows our recent 12th birthday celebrations – which saw us hand out cupcake platters to lucky clients to say thank you for their ongoing support.

Mrs Cooksley said she was “shocked and delighted” to have won the award, and thanked all Rely Ltd’s “wonderful” clients for their support across the years.

She said: “I feel rather shocked, but delighted to have won.

“It has been the icing on the cake to our recent birthday celebrations. It’s been lovely to have a chance to take stock and look back at how far the company has come in the last 12 years.

“I’m very proud of the way Rely has constantly grown, taken on new challenges and flourished.”

She added a huge thank you to her husband Jonathan, who “always had faith” and “always supported” her business, and to Rely Ltd’s loyal customers.

You can see a video of the night and read the coverage from the Dorset Echo here.

To continue our birthday celebrations, we have launched a competition offering businesses the chance to win one of the following prizes; a half day training workshop, a one year subscription to their HR Lifeline service or four HR Time Credits.
