On 7th May 2019, part of the Shire Leasing team attended the first Leasing World Customer Service and Operational Excellence Awards Evening.
“Aspire to new heights” – the strapline for the event was matched by the venue; the rooftop Sky Garden of the 38-storey ‘Walkie-Talkie’ building.
With canapés and drinks being enjoyed whilst overlooking panoramic views over the capital city, the night was set to be an exciting one from the offset. The team enjoyed a 4 course dinner whilst listening to guest speaker Jamie Chadwick, the first female to win a race in British F3. As the night progressed, the awards were announced and it was great to celebrate the achievements of the asset finance industry and our peers.
