We are thrilled to announce that Storybox NI has been shortlisted for the prestigious Social Enterprise NI Awards in not one, but two categories: "Best Use of Social Media" and "Emerging Leader," recognising our founder, Rachel McIlgorm.
This recognition is a testament to our unwavering commitment to supporting local businesses and social enterprises while advocating for the power of conscious shopping. We are both humbled and excited to share this news with you.
Best Use of Social Media
At Storybox NI, we believe in the power of storytelling. Our mission has always been to tell the stories of amazing local businesses and social enterprises in engaging and informative ways. Our platform has become a canvas where these stories come to life, inspiring individuals to make more conscious shopping choices.
Through our website and social media channels, we've celebrated the incredible work of local artisans, small businesses, artists, and creatives who are making a difference in Northern Ireland. From heartwarming success stories to the behind-the-scenes glimpses of these enterprises, our social media presence has been a powerful tool for raising awareness and fostering a sense of community.
Emerging Leader: Rachel McIlgorm
The "Emerging Leader" category shines a spotlight on Rachel McIlgorm, the visionary founder of Storybox NI. Rachel's passion for supporting local businesses and using purchasing power for good has been the driving force behind our company's success.
Rachel's journey as an entrepreneur and advocate for ethical products has been a remarkable one. Her dedication to the cause, tireless work ethic, and genuine love for the local community have inspired countless others to make socially responsible choices particularly in the world of corporate gifting.
