Every year the Guiding Star nominations are one of the highlights of the conference season. Anyone involved in Kids Bee Happy is very aware of all teamwork, support and generous sharing of knowledge within the company, and importantly cross team. But when you see it written down, time and time again, it makes a huge impression. What I love about the guiding star nominations is that as well as thanks and recognition for the big stuff, there is also a huge number of nominations of other consultants for the smaller stuff that happens much more often, the friendly words, the sharing of resources, helpful tips and guidance - and its this that makes Kids Bee Happy one big family, and so its a delight to present these awards each year.

Other Nominations that stand out:
This year we had over 200 nominations, and so we decided to share each nomination with the person who received it, so that you could see just how much you are appreciated (if you've not see any of these nomination emails, check out your spam filter because they are there!).
I would love to be able to share with you all of the nominations but unfortunately time doesn't permit, but here are a few that stood out to me:
Lyn Bunker: Lyn works two businesses, works part time, back at Uni part time, juggles family life. If she’s not at Uni or work you’ll find her busy doing either business, she keeps both businesses very separately, she is a real Ambassador for KBH, a real team player and can see a fantastic team leader in the making if she has any time left. Lyn your a real asset to the team full all helpful hints & tips without imposing your ways.
Warehouse Team: Would like to nominate Dylan and Paul from the KBH backoffice, warehouse. We always forget about the people behing the stage who works hard to make as shining with our success. He is very reliable, kind, polite, and you always can count on his help. Just massive THANK YOU to him for being part of our big family.
Maddi Rowley: Thank you for being a true team player and inspirational leader. The way you support your own team, and the wider team and team leaders is truly amazing. Thank you for setting up all the event groups, sharing your ideas and passing leads on throughout the whole company. You are a star. Most importantly thank you for being you, and becoming a wonderful friend to me."
Amanda McDiarmed: "Right now I cant be there at conference as Amanda McDiarmed my wonderful mum is there, she has had the most ups and downs, where most would just give up she just keeps on going. I truly believe that Kids bee happy saved her. She is working so hard to make a success of her business which has given her a sence of being. I am at home looking after my disabled sister, so mum can be there (she needs the break).Yes I am a consultant and love it, but mum whether she wins or not, deserves the recognition from all of us!! Her children, her adopted child, step children, foster children, and grandchildren.
Steph Terry:Steph didn’t have an easy start to her business, but with her patience and yes having to bite her tongue and keeping focused on building her business, even getting through a few Gazebos at some wet and wild festivals, working through the good events and the not so great event she in definitely a shining star, keep making those contacts with other businesses and organisers. Keep shining brightly
