Those of us who were fortunate enough to hear the moving speech by Gulf War Veteran, Allen Parton, founder of the charity “Hounds for Heroes”, at the inaugural ACS Pacesetters Achievement Awards Luncheon last year are ever likely to forget it. It was, quite simply, the best talking to the best and it brought a hugely successful Awards Luncheon at Windsor Racecourse to a conclusion.
Since last year, The ACS Pacesetters have consolidated their position as the first port of call for a growing number of clients, who wish to go out to tender for their manned services guarding contract; in tandem with that, so too has the membership of The Pacesetters grown as more and more ACS companies, eligible as a result of their score in the top 15% of the annual ACS Inspection, come to realise the benefits of our intense marketing campaign on their behalf.
This year’s annual Awards Luncheon will take place, as before, in the Castle Suite at The Royal Windsor Racecourse on Wednesday, 20th May 2015. It is open to all ACS Pacesetters who are members, as at 1st May 2015. Each member company which attends the function will be presented with a personally engraved award showing that they are a member company in 2015. This award has proved to be an excellent marketing tool for winning future business in the year ahead.
As happened last year, we will be obtaining sponsors who will be expected to play a very active role throughout the proceedings. We are inviting a total of 30 end-users as our personal guests in order that they can meet representatives of The ACS Pacesetters in attendance at the function and, finally, again producing the highly successful 16 page Commemorative Brochure.
Details regarding an opportunity to advertise in the Commemorative Brochure, together with information regarding Application Forms for the “Security Officer of Distinction“ Awards—increased in 2015 from 10 to 12 awards—will be sent out to all Pacesetters in mid-February.
The individual cost of the lunch will be £65 and if you would like to attend, as a representative of your company to collect the engraved award, then the overall cost is £125 + VAT (£65 for the lunch and £60 for the engraved award). Where more than one representative is attending from a company, then the cost of each lunch remains at £65 + VAT.
Official photographers have been appointed for the event and the photographs will all be available for you to download free of charge.
We have been fortunate in acquiring a larger dining area than last year, but would strongly recommend that you reserve places at the event at the earliest opportunity.
