Friday 20th November was a huge night for us all at Heaven Scent and Heavens Above as we were double winners at the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce Business Star Awards 2015, held at a glittering ceremony at Crieff Hydro.
The judges of the “Excellence in Business Innovation” award were hugely impressed by Andrew Scott’s vision and ambition in opening Heavens Above, a unique dining and events space above Heaven Scent artisan coffee shop in Milnathort, just eight months ago. They remarked on how Andrew had been able to make such a success of a city style venue in a rural location, and highlighted his ongoing efforts to improve, engage and innovate.
Andrew said “We are absolutely delighted to be recognised in this way. These awards are testament to our quirky approach to continual improvement and expanding our range of services. We pride ourselves in being creative and always thinking of new initiatives, from being one of the very few Scottish companies to take part in ‘Silver Sunday’ which celebrates the contribution older people make to our community, running a weekly Supper Club and inviting local children to design a ‘Terrifying Tea’ for Hallowe’en.”
Our success in business innovation is also a reflection of our amazing team headed up by Hollie Millar, who herself won the ‘Employee of the Year‘ accolade, beating off stiff competition from high calibre finalists from across Perthshire.
As if running Scott Hospitality doesn’t keep him busy enough, Andrew has also established Victus Catering Consultancy which offers help, advice and guidance to small to medium businesses in the hospitality sector whose problems and challenges require a different perspective. Furthermore, as a highly sought after keynote speaker and MC, Andrew is often invited to conferences, workshops and events across the UK.
