Galway businesses scoop up prestigious Business All-Stars Awards

Galway businesses were among the winners at last week’s All-Stars competition at the All-Ireland Business Summit in Croke Park.

The 1,000-strong audience from across the 32 counties was captivated by the speakers at the summit, who revealed their top secrets that led to their business success.

The Business All-Stars competition final was one of the key elements of the summit and Galway businesses including TJ Hyland & Co Accountants and Farmyard in your Schoolyard were among the winners.

The Business All-Stars is an annual competition designed to identify, recognise and accredit Irish companies and individuals that have distinguished themselves in the conduct of their business over the last 12 months.

The Role of Honour of All-Star accreditees reflects the diverse stages of development and vertical specialisation of Irish enterprises.

It includes special categories for social enterprises, charities and rising stars.

Those included represent the highest current performance level in Irish business, and are presented as a standard or benchmark to be equaled or exceeded.

TJ Hyland & Co Accountants was accredited with the All-Star Lifetime Service-Galway Business Award.

Tom Hyland of TJ Hyland & Co Accountants, said: “On behalf of TJ Hyland & Co Accountants I would like to express our sincere thanks for being accredited the All Star Lifetime Service Award. Achieving All-Stars accreditation is a great source of pride for us and we look forward to continuing to meet and indeed exceed the standards set by the All-Star programme.

“The process which led to this accreditation truly stretched us, the structure of the competition required us to put our brand story on paper and gave us the opportunity to reflect on who we are, our growth strategy and above all the value we create for our target audience.

“The opportunity to hear first-hand feedback from our Judge-Mentor, our existing customers, partners and suppliers through the reference module combined with the results from the mystery shopper round was invaluable. We would like to thank all at the competition for making the effort to listen to our story, understand and accredit our business and above all help us to promote it.”

Also among the winners was Farmyard in your Schoolyard of Ahascragh, Co Galway, which was accredited with an All-Star Award for Agri Business.

 

Christina James of Farmyard in your Schoolyard said: “On behalf of the Farmyard in your Schoolyard team I would like to express our sincere thanks for being accredited with the All Star Award for Agri Business 2018-19. Achieving All-Star accreditation is a great source of pride for us and we look forward to continuing to meet and indeed exceed the standards set by the All-Star programme.
