We are thrilled to announce that Victoria Nicol, the Managing Director and Founder of My Language Connection (MLC), is the winner of the prestigious Young Business Person of the Year Award at the Glasgow Business Awards 2023.
The My Language Connection team proudly saw Victoria accept the award at the Double Tree Inn amongst some of Glasgow’s most successful business talent, enterprises and business leaders.
The Award is one of the most sought after at the Glasgow Business Awards as it showcases the hope, promise and future of Glasgow’s business leaders. The award specifically recognises those shortlisted’s exceptional career progression, outstanding business expertise, and remarkable leadership and management skills.
Victoria has not only displayed exceptional leadership in driving MLC to its current success, but she has continually showcased her dedication to her team and clients. Her strategic decision-making, guided by MLC’s core values, has led to exponential growth and remarkable achievements for the company.
When asked how she felt having been announced the winner, Victoria shared, ‘It’s a huge accomplishment and one that I wasn’t expecting. What means the most is being able to have this moment with my team. We’ve really pushed the boundaries to get to where we are and nights like this give us a chance to really reflect and celebrate that.’
The last year specifically has seen MLC diversify, internationalise, grow the team, increase turnover and develop their own technology to make their service even easier, friendlier and more efficient for their clients. With the launch of new innovative services, technology and products, and by revising the business’ core values. These values revolve around equality and wellbeing, transparent operations, maximising the potential of MLC’s people and clients, as well as effective communication and understanding.
By following through with these values, Victoria has created a strong and cohesive team that is committed to delivering exceptional language solutions.
In the past year, Victoria has demonstrated remarkable adaptability and resilience in navigating through challenging times. She has consistently re-strategised the business in response to changing market conditions including Brexit and the post pandemic landscape and evolving industry landscapes. As a result, MLC has not only weathered tough economic times but has also grown, year on year since startup.
Victoria’s achievement of winning the Young Business Person of the Year Award 2023 is a testament to her outstanding leadership, unmatched business expertise, and unwavering commitment to MLC’s growth.
We now wait patiently as Victoria and MLC have been shortlisted for the Growth Business of the Year Award at the Women’s Enterprise Scotland Awards on Thursday 26th October 2023 at Glasgow’s Crowne Plaza sponsored by STV and the BBC.
For now, we congratulate Victoria on this well-deserved recognition and eagerly anticipate the future successes she will undoubtedly bring to My Language Connection and the industry as a whole.
