Business All-Star Accredited

Only 10 days until the Business All-Stars ceremony!

Just 10 days to go, until the Business All-Stars accreditation ceremony

As announced a few weeks ago, Aelia received the prestigious Business All-Stars accreditation from the All Ireland Business Foundation. The ceremony will be held on the 25 October 2019, in Croke Park, Dublin. Our founder is going to be there to receive his gold medal, as a proof of excellence. The people who met him know that he can be friendly and chatty, but in reality he can be quite shy. Let’s say that he is still undecided if he’s very excited, or just really scared. 😃

He put a lot of work, sweat and sleepless nights in building the trusted business behind the Aelia brand. We believe that he deserves the All-Stars accreditation, which he earned in full, as an official recognition of his efforts and results.

We know that we already posted this last time, but the accreditation certificate looks really nice, so here it is again. 😁
