SUMMERHILL ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS
Whatever you do in life, you need a point of differentiation in order to separate yourself from the masses. In the retail trade, they call it the unique selling point. Without the cash to pick whatever we needed in order to cash in on the best genetics, we had to find things we could be better at, so that we could find the small increments that took us to the summit.
Whilst they do not rank in any particular order of importance, the first item you should address, is the selection of your team. When we first kicked off at Summerhill, there were but six people on the staff, and they lived in difficult circumstances in what is these days known as “Old Compound”. One of the best pay-offs in our lives, was the decision to pick the best people we could find.
That we succeeded was evident at the School Of Excellence last week, where no fewer than six of our staff received their 20 year service awards. Another five got their 10 year “gongs”, and their names should be recited for posterity.
