Open Study College are delighted to have had an incredibly successful evening at the Solihull Chamber of Commerce awards. We are over the moon to say that we managed to scoop up not one, not two, but three awards!
Outstanding Business Person
To kick things off, our COO, Samantha Rutter, was named Outstanding Business Person of the Year. The award celebrates Samantha’s hard work at Open Study College in transforming the face of distance learning, as well as her new venture, Wiggles and Giggles Day Nursery based on Birmingham Business Park.
Next up for us was the hotly contested Outstanding Small Business of the Year category… which Open Study College won! After winning this category, we were then shortlisted for the Outstanding Business of the Year category. We are extremely proud to say that we scooped up this award too!
To have won these three accolades at the Solihull Chamber of Commerce awards is a momentous achievement for Open Study College, and we are incredibly proud of the team and all their hard work.
Our COO, Samantha Rutter said:
“We’re absolutely thrilled to not only be recognised as winners in one category, but in three! The team at Open Study College work tirelessly to make it a success, and we’re so pleased that all of their hard work has been recognised in this way.”
