2015 Employee of the Year – Nicky Lott

Nicky Lott - Employee of the Year 2015

Reflecting on winning the Employee of the Year accolade at the 2015 Hub Awards, we asked Nicky Lott, a few questions ahead of 2016’s nominations and shortlisting.

Why did you enter the Hub Awards?

“I was nominated by my [Jarrang] colleagues to enter the Hub Awards – to be honest it was a total surprise! Having been to several of the Hub’s award events over the last few years it had always been a bit of a pipe dream to enter, but I never thought I would actually do it. I’m really pleased that the team gave me the push I needed!”

What have you achieved in the year since the Hub Awards?

“The last year has been a really exciting one. My personal development has accelerated and I’ve been lucky enough to take on more responsibility at work, both internally within the team, and taking on a new key client.”

What would you say to anyone considering entering the hub awards?

“Do it! I didn’t think I would win, but the application process encouraged me to reflect on my achievements and it gave me a real confidence boost.”

What’s your favourite aspect of being a part of Cornwall’s business community?

“The best part of the Cornish business community is the people – everyone is really friendly and we have so many inspiring business leaders to learn from.”

What is your top tip for achieving in business?

“My top tip is to work hard and have confidence in yourself. If you don’t know something, just ask – there will always be someone who is happy to help.”
