This time next week we’ll be in our tuxedos hoping to win Family Business of the Year at the Scottish Business Awards.

Leonardo DiCaprio has somewhat stolen our thunder by flying in as keynote speaker and sending women and men alike into a frenzy. Last year we had the pleasure of meeting Mr George Clooney when he headlined, so perhaps we’ll add an Oscar winner to our hall of fame photo gallery.

In all seriousness, we are honestly delighted to be nominated. We’re a young business and we’ve still got a way to go in achieving our dreams, so to find ourselves in such esteemed company already is a real honour. The category means a lot to us, as a father and son founding team, we see all our colleagues as an extended family. We include our customers in that ethos - we regard everyone who buys a car from us as friends of the business. Family values run through everything we do, so to win would be unbelievable.

Even if we’re pipped to the post, it’s always a fantastic night, a great chance to network, catch up with friends and listen to inspiring speakers.

If you’re heading to the EICC on 17 November, please come and say hi – and keep your fingers crossed for us!
