Seasons Greetings & on behalf of us here @ Paradise Brokers I would like to thankQ for your support throughout this past year & wish you all the best for an enjoyable time with family & friends over the forthcoming Christmas & New Year.
Another busy & successful year is nearly over having brought many highlights to us here. In August we shifted offices to the Nelson Chamber of Commerce building, 63 Trafalgar Street. Unfortunately, the wee cottage where we were previously for four & a half years has been moved away to make way for a new workshop, but our new home is equally, if not more, as comfortable. If you have not already, drop in to see us, we are upstairs & love catch up for a chat.
A particular highlight of our year for us was winning the NZME Customer Service Excellence Award at the Nelson Chamber of Commerce 2017 Business Awards. It feels like a true testament to the service we aspire to deliver to you, our clients. We would not be here without you, so thank you again for your support over the last 13 years in January next month.
An example of our dedication which won us this award is, once again, we will be available for you during the holiday period. Our experience suggests this is a time of year many people like to catch up on a variety of matters time does not allow during the year, & this often includes aspects of insurance. So, we endeavour to be available, because typically no one else is, & respond to any enquiries which arise before & after Christmas. Our landline & my mobile will be answered. Appointments can be arranged.
2017 also of course, brought in a change of Government. Whilst so far, no changes to law affecting insurance have been put in place, however watch this space. I probably do not need to remind you of what the challenges & risks are ~ increasing terrorism, climate change & natural disasters, the war against pollution, the fight against prejudice, inequality, poverty ~ it appears we can battle on every front.
Businesses also have major issues to deal with. I am not referring here just to the changes which will come through a new government ~ rather the wider forces at work out there & the everyday challenges which come from business ownership. Now is a good time to take stock of where we come from with our businesses & where we are heading to for the next 12 months & beyond.
Finally, we wish to take this opportunity of wishing everyone a splendid & happy Christmas period & our very best warm wishes for the New Year. We look forward to speaking with you all in 2018.
With our best wishes,
Kenn & Carla
