This week is one of the most interesting of the year here at The Falkirk Herald ... and also one of the most difficult.
Monday marked the start of the final judging in this year’s Falkirk Herald Business Awards.
And, while it’s encouraging and inspiring to listen to the many success stories from across the district, it makes it extremely difficult to come to a decision on which firm is most deserving of the accolade.
We’ve already gone through the sifting process to come up with the shortlist – a difficult enough process on its own – but now we’re having to choose between the elite.
As you read this, we’re halfway through the process.
And, although the winners’ names won’t be revealed until the ceremony on November 20, I can confirm that each and every one deserves their award.
The calibre of entry gives me great encouragement for the years ahead.
