We had the distinct pleasure of being nominee for the Wisconsin Family Business Award this year. There were three “Grand” awards, for small, medium, and large companies. And, several awards from the judges, recognizing various Wisconsin businesses for their unique contributions to our communities. While we did not receive an award, rest assured being in the room with so many amazing businesses, some on their 6th and 7th generation of being family-run, was rewarding in and of itself. Kudos to WFDA on a remarkable evening, and to the winners – congratulations! See you all next year!
(And yes, that’s Tom Farley speaking! He’s a wonderful communicator with a powerful message, speaking out against substance abuse. If you get the chance to hear him speak, go for it!)
