Ready 4 Business (Sept 2013)

Following on from the Mobile Vets win in the Regional awards for best start up business to consumer business of 2013 Kirsty and I travelled to the Houses of Parliament for the National Finals where we competed against other Regional finalists for the best National start up business to consumer business of 2013 and were announced winners!

Obviously we are shocked and excited. The Mobile Vet has only been in action for 6 months now and to even be recognised and nominated for an award is mind blowing. Award winners are decided by business persons from various different business backgrounds who assess each business on their own merits.  We feel blessed already to have had such a great reception from the Island residents since providing this service, this really is the icing on the cake and hopefully reflects our willingness to continue to strive to provide the best service that we can for our clients.

We can not thank everyone enough fortheir support in helping us to achieve this recognition.

The award is dedicated to all you people out there and we are extremely proud to have done the Isle of Wight proud at the National Awards Ceremony.

Everline Future 50 (Feb 2014)

An invitation to a party night in London with comedian Seann Walsh hosting was the result of the Mobile Vet being announced one of Everline's Future 50 businesses in February 2014. 

The final 50 was announced at a party in Old Street - the heart of London's startup scene.

The 2014 entries were as diverse as they were brilliant, showcasing businesses poised to revolutionise the way we do just about everything. Having the guts and determination to get a groundbreaking new business up and running is no mean feat so a huge congratulations to everyone on the list. There was serious competition to make the 50 this year so our judges had a very tough job.

Russell Gould, managing director of Everline, said: “We had hundreds of high-calibre entries to this year’s Future 50, showing that small businesses are continuing to find innovative ways to drive the UK economy."

"The UK continues to prove itself as a hub of innovation and we’re really proud to support and celebrate the achievements of these businesses and wish them every.

Our greatest achievment to date without a doubt, read on for press release...

As the Mobile Vet approaches its third year since launch, husband & wife team of Dan & Kirsty Forster are very proud to have had bestowed upon them a queens award for enterprise in innovation. 
The Queen's Awards for Enterprise is an awards programme for British businesses and other organizations who excel at innovation. They are the highest official UK awards for British businesses. 
Kirsty & Dan recently received correspondance informing them of the achievement:

"I am delighted to inform you that Her Majesty The Queen has been graciously pleased to approve the Prime Minister's recommendation that your organisation should receive a Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation this year."

Her majesty announced the business win on her 90th birthday on 21st April. Kirsty & Dan have been invited to Buckingham Palace in July for an official reception & to meet the Queen

Dan said "we have been fortunate enough to receive excellent feedback from our clients & enjoy an immense amount of job satisfaction with the way we work. A nod from her majesty is truly the crowning glory for our business. It just goes to show what can be achieved with exceptional hard work and effort, the love & support of family/friends & a formidable staff. This award is for all these people that help to make our business great!"

"We are very much looking forward to meeting the queen & can't quite get our heads round it. Kirsty has spent hours looking for a dress & i am brushing up on my royal etiquette!"

After an exciting few years, we have recently employed an additional vet & consequently we no longer have a waiting list & have reopened the books. You can register online or by calling reception.
