IN FOCUS: SPIRIT OF ENTERPRISE 2015By Nicole Kow
It’s that time of the year again, when the last annual issue rolls out and reflections of the past year begins. Another year is coming to a close, another blessed year that has seen its fair share of ups and down, an expanding network of satisfied clients whom have written touching testimonials and are now living in their very own Nic &Wes homes. It feels just like yesterday that we released our decade milestone book “In A Decade – Lifestyle Homes By Nic & Wes Builders” in hardcover. Three years later and now it is available as an E-book!
Another very touching milestone was founders Brian and Jude Kow receiving the honorary award for the Spirit Of Enterprise 2015. While the company has received other service excellence awards in the past, this one in particular holds a special place in the hearts of Nic & Wes. The Spirit Of Enterprise Award honours individuals from local small and medium enterprises, and above that aims to inspire the younger generation in the field of entrepreneurship. Unlike many awards that stemmed from being more of a marketing tool with high costs, this award expected no fees to participate just a nomination and a look through the background of the company for eligibility.
After receiving the unexpected nomination, the Spirit Of Enterprise team contacted us and the process began. The special icing on the cake was Brian and Jude being interviewed by two (Year 3) students from Singapore Polytechnic. The two students were among a team of interviewers sent to ask questions and learn more from their peers about embarking into the route of entrepreneurship. With curiosity and a listening ear, the two students asked away with both Brian and Jude in their element speaking about their passion of building a business from scratch.
On 20th October 2015, we attended the Gala Dinner held at Mandarin Orchard to celebrate the group of honouree award recipients. Each table setting encompassed a magazine customized with a solo image of the respective recipients. On the Nic & Wes table, alternate photos of Brian and Jude splashed on the cover of the magazine was proudly on display.
Not just a proud moment for the Nic & Wes team, the aura of seeing like-minded entrepreneurs sharing the spotlight and being honoured in their respective fields was truly awe inspiring.
Awards like the Spirit Of Enterprise are hard to come by with many companies creating awards that can seem more surficial than meaningful thus we are deeply grateful.
It is true that anyone can start a business but it takes a special few to sustain it. Call this an ode to the founders of Nic & Wes Builders; a deserving couple that believes in upright business practises and serving their clients (both potential and existing) to the best of their abilities with honesty and integrity minus the sugar-coating.
Nic & Wes will continue to strive to be a reliable team that you as a client can expect to depend on during and after your home build journey with us. On behalf of Nic & Wes we wish one and all Happy Holidays and you can expect our next issue in February 2016.
