The Bermudian

This past year has proven to be another difficult one for Bermudian businesses.

However, with tough times come tougher people, and companies that continue to sell great products and give great service not only survive, they thrive in this economy. Our judges took considerable time and made a great effort to acknowledge all of those businesses that go above and beyond the norm and deserve recognition for their hard work.

In this our 11th year, the Product & Service Awards have honoured 46 local businesses and business people - from one of Bermuda's premier reinsurance companies to a 10-year-old entrepreneur who has taken the lemonade stand to a whole new level. We hope you join us in supporting as many of them as you can over the holiday season and congratulating them on their awards.

We also take this opportunity to thank our judges, who used their varied expertise in choosing the winners. We appreciate their diligence and their dedication to making our annual awards a success. 


Office Supplies

A. F. Smith
"Life's short. Love your work" is A. F. Smith's motto and their friendly staff consistently ensure customers do indeed love their work with the latest IT supplies, accessories, monthly specials and more while providing helpful tips for better time management and even dynamic presentations. With free on-line ordering and quick delivery, all the paper, folders, staplers and paper clips you could ever need can be delivered exactly when you need them.

Office Furniture
A. F. Smith
Sweeping the office categories, A. F.

They even have a rental programme and a leasing option that can outfit your small office space or new corporate headquarters with chairs, desks, workstations, markerboards and more, quickly and affordably. 7 Tumkins Lane, Hamilton. Tel: 292-1882, www.afsmith.bm.

 

Take-Out Lunch
Nonna's Kitchen
They may be the new kids on the block, but Nonna's Kitchen is getting noticed as the best place to grab a quick and healthy lunch. Owned and run by Norma Thompson, Nonna's serves homemade soups, fresh salads and home-baked goods including gluten-free and dairy-free items. It is making us hungry just thinking about it! 4 Bermudiana Road, Hamilton. Tel: 295-7687


Place for Computer Sales

Redlaser
Our judges all had huge kudos for the excellent in-store and on-site service, extensive website and pleasant staff at Redlaser, but it was the impressive customer-service experience of one of them that put the company over the top in this category. With the customer expecting perhaps a day or two for delivery of an external hard drive, Redlaser arrived at the office a mere 30 minutes after the order was placed on-line, hard drive in hand. Speedy service like that is definitely deserving of an award in our books! 12 Bakery Lane, Pembroke. Tel: 296-6544, www.redlaser.bm


Hotel/Guest House for the Business Traveller

The Oxford House
Owned and operated by the beloved Mrs. Ann Smith since 1983, The Oxford House came highly rated by our judges this year. With a dozen spacious guest rooms all beautifully decorated in classic Bermudian charm while kitted out with all the modern conveniences needed by a business traveller, The Oxford House is the perfect place to wind down after a long, busy day at the Bermuda office. 20 Woodbourne Avenue, Pembroke. Tel: 295-0503, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., www.oxfordhouse.bm


Local Business Ad Campaign

Perry Footwear

Their commercials are deceptively simple - the latest hit single plays, still images of lust-worthy shoes flash and a logo pops up at the end. But every time they run on television the kids start dancing, the women start taking mental notes and the men start handing over their wallets! Now if we can only figure out how to claim new shoes as a business expens. 44 Reid Street, Hamilton. Tel: 296-8097, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Client Lunch

Barracuda Grill
It is in their mission to treat all their guests like the important people they are (or aspire to be) which makes Barracuda Grill the number one restaurant for the business elite to bring their most important clients. Along with their impeccable service, BG serves a three-course business lunch that changes monthly. Our judges love it for the quiet booths where business deals can be made in relative privacy. 5 Burnaby Street, Hamilton. Tel: 292-1609, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Morning Cup of Joe
Dangelini's
As close to Starbucks as you are going to get in Bermuda, Dangelini's has all the cappa, frappa, whatevers you need to kick-start your day; and its convenient location next to the ferry terminal makes it the perfect stop for weary commuters. An amalgamation of the owners' names - Daniele, Jessica and Shalini - Dangelini's is fast becoming a favourite among our judges. 8 Front Street, Hamilton. Tel: 295-5272

 

Floral Designer
Flowers by GiMi
"They always do a phenomenal job," stated one of our judges when discussing the award for Flowers by GiMi, while another spoke highly of their "fabulous Front Street store." With their deliciously fresh flowers and contemporary arrangements by former floral designer for the royal family, Michelle Geary, it is no wonder GiMi keep racking up the awards. (They won the Best of Bermuda Award for Fresh Flowers this year, too). 37 Front Street, HSBC Harbourview Centre, Hamilton. Tel: 297-4464, www.flowersbygimi.com

Tel: 292-4507, www.bolerobrasserie.com


Place for a Corporate Happy Hour

Harry's
When entertaining clients or just letting loose with colleagues on a Friday night, Harry's is the only place to go, say our judges. With Martini Madness every Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., the bar is hopping with the suit set, who nosh on everything from oysters on the half shell to sliders and, for the very brave, Harry's free-range really hot wings. 96 Pitt's Bay Road, Pembroke. 292-5533, This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., www.miles.bm/Harrys/harrys.html

 


Party Venue

Recreational Activity to Entertain Clients

Venetian
When you want to show a client how lucky they are to be working with you in Bermuda, take them on a sunset cruise aboard the luxurious Venetian.  The 100-foot Azimut Benetti can accommodate up to 60 for cocktails or be fully catered for just a few. Book it for overnight and treat your guests to one of the four spectacular staterooms and breakfast on a private beach in the morning. If that doesn't seal the deal, then we don't know what will!

Corporate Hospitality Event

Rugby Classic
The most popular fixture on the corporate social calendar is by far the annual World Rugby Classic. Over the rambunctious week filled with crazy costumes and copious amounts of food and libations, over 6,000 guests will enjoy the Hospitality Village in the dedicated corporate tents to watch the shenanigans - and, of course, a bit of the rugby too. www.worldrugby.bm

 

Corporate Staff Outing
Bermuda Fun Golf
He may dominate in the boardroom, but on the mini-golf course anyone could beat the boss—and the best place to try and do so is Bermuda Fun Golf. Recently opened in Dockyard, Fun Golf features mini versions of the "best" holes from some of the most famous courses in Bermuda, the US and Scotland - including the "Island Green" on Sawgrass, the elevated tee on No. 7 at Pebbles Beach and the "Golden Bell" at Augusta.

Best Company to Work For
RenaissanceRe
Good companies offer their staff a fair salary, standard benefits and a few extra perks. The best company supports its staff with an in-house gym with a daily fitness programme, lunch in the office each day, housing support for Bermudians and expatriates, year-round training and development, education incentives and rewards for successfully achieving professional designations and a generous charitable-donations matching programme. RenaissanceRe, one of the world's largest and most successful reinsurers of natural and man-made catastrophes, is Bermuda's best company to work for because of the aforementioned perks - and a culture that fosters success and values employees. They also play a considerable part in helping locals succeed by providing international work experience in various office locations, offering an annual undergraduate scholarship and maintaining a paid student-intern programme.

Clever Customer Incentive Programme
Cafe 4
We believe loyalty should always be rewarded. Doing it in a tech-savvy new way makes it award-worthy. Our judges love the Loyalty Card programme at Cafe 4. The premise is pretty simple: spend $11-plus and you get a stamp, after nine stamps they give you $11 back in purchases. Cards are available for traditional stamping, of course, but customers with smart phones can go to stampme.com and download an app that works as your virtual loyalty card. The cashier then gives you a barcode to scan at the checkout - it is as easy as that. Who said there is no such thing as a free lunch? Windsor Place (Washington Mall), 18 Queen Street, Hamilton.

Entrepreneur - Special Mention
Ashley's Lemonade
Our judges felt they would be remiss not to give a special mention to 10-year-old entrepreneur Ashley Stephens who owns and runs Ashley's Lemonade. You can find Ashley squeezing fresh lemons on Saturdays outside her mom's store Upscale Fashions next to Saltus or at any of the major events around the island where her stands tend to pop up. She says she's raising the money for college, and we have no doubt she's going on to be one of Bermuda's best entrepreneurs one day!
