Google Premier Partner Awards 2016
Being an apprentice for 6 months now I was lucky enough to go to Dublin for the Google Premier Partner Awards as biddible. had been shortlisted for two awards, Best Shopping and Best Search. I had a fantastic time! Me and Katy landed in Dublin on the Sunday ready for the awards and a trip to Google on Monday. We arrived early so we had the chance to go around Temple Bar and see a little bit of Dublin which was great.
On Sunday night, we had a networking night with all the companies who were shortlisted like biddible. for an award. This took place in the Clayton Hotel Burlington Road bar which was beautiful and all the food was delicious! In the bar, there was amazing entertainment on and people teaching us how to play the bodhran.
After the networking night finished, we had to get up early for the trip to Google which was my first time at Google so I was very excited. After the most delicious breakfast, we went on the coach to take us to Google and when we arrived there was hot drinks and cold drinks there for everyone to have. When we went to sit down ready to learn lots of exciting new stuff we had a Google book and a pen on our seats waiting for us to write down lots of notes! I really enjoyed listening to what everyone had to say and I learnt so much.
When we got back to the hotel from a great day at Google, it was finally time to get ready for the awards. The coach picked us up at half 6 and everyone looked very smart! We arrived at the Mansion House and the building was stunning. Before the awards started, everyone sat down at their table and we all had an amazing 3 course meal which was delicious.
Finally, the awards started and everyone was ready to find out who won the awards! biddible. didn’t win the awards we were shortlisted for but being shortlisted for two Google Premier Partner Awards is an amazing achievement. The team should be very proud of being shortlisted as biddible. work very hard and hopefully next time we will win.
I would like to thank Google for an amazing two days at Google and the awards, I got to meet some lovely people when I was there and I will remember this trip forever. Thank you to the biddible. team for letting me go to Dublin, I had the best time and I will be forever thankful for the opportunities I am getting as an apprentice.
