Most Improved Managing Director of the Year Award won by Luke Walker of Bamboosh
Entrepreneur Luke Walker of Bamboosh recently returned from an exclusive industry awards gala in the British capital. The business owner received the coveted ‘Most Improved Managing Director of the Year’ award at the event, and detailed his business journey in a speech that grabbed the attention of those in attendance.
The revered award ceremony was held at London’s Royal Festival Hall on Saturday the 12th of May, and boasted the attendance of numerous sales and marketing businesses from across the nation.
Walker began his acceptance speech detailing his motivation behind recent changes made to Bamboosh and his own leadership style over the past months, those who kick-started this drive and his eagerness to continue his self-development.
The entrepreneur has long been an advocate of business travel, the importance this can have within a business model and the opportunities it presents. Walker explored this concept when he detailed a trip he took to Miami to visit an industry expert on the advice of his mentor. Walker pinpointed how this experience was able to change his perception of the industry, recognising what was needed to succeed and build a business focused on longevity.
Walker explained his transition to Maidstone in the previous years on the advice of a fellow business owner, the trials and obstacles this presented having made the change with a small number of contractors. The entrepreneur recognised the tools needed to make this transition a success and has now solidified his place as a widely acknowledged industry expert.
The business owner explored many themes throughout his award-winning speech, detailing the importance of passion, intensity and a drive for the industry.
“This past year has forced me to put into action what I’ve been talking about, you can achieve anything if you truly put your mind to it,” stated Walker.
The Managing Director explored his focus for the coming months, detailing a passion for improving his coaching skills, which has already been implemented through visiting businesses across the country. Walker’s speech focused on a theme of travel, whether national or international, the opportunities this has presented – and how this has catapulted the success of Bamboosh contactors and the entrepreneur’s own skills.
The business owner wound down this speech with one of this own life mottos, to inspire those new business owners in attendance – “…be a chess player, not a checker player, always think three steps ahead.”
