As part of the AFA Group here at Clear Start, we recently held our annual end-of-year celebration at The Light Cinema in Stockport – with a wealth of entertainment, talent and esteemed accolades to recognise the outstanding work of our team members.
The celebrations kick-started with the AFA Group’s spin on classic game shows such as Jeopardy and Deal or No Deal.
AFA Does Jeopardy featured general knowledge questions covering categories such as Art, History, Entertainment, Science, Sports, and Geography; the team engaged in friendly competition, earning raffle tickets for each correct answer. New Business Representative here at Clear Start Gill Brooks, was victorious and secured the chance to play Deal or No Deal, and the opportunity to win £250! Despite playing a commendable game as she eliminated each box, Gill walked away with a respectable £120.
Following the suspenseful games, eight individuals then took to the stage in the AFA Group’s Got Talent, where they battled to secure the grand prize of £1000 or the Golden Buzzer prize – a holiday for two in Rome! From impressive musical performances to a daring recreation of The Full Monty, the contestants showcased a huge array of talent. After intense rounds of competition, the final three contestants emerged, all of whom showcased their vocal prowess. Geralt and Nicole secured the top spots, winning the cash prize and the coveted getaway.
To conclude the evening, prestigious awards were presented to individuals who have made remarkable contributions throughout the year. Among the deserving winners were:
· Manager of the Year: Jan Copeland
· Customer Service Agent of the Year: Soma Surai
· Team Leader of the Year (Clear Start Accountants): Shaz Ahmed
· New Business Agent of the Year: Mike Kennerk
· Newcomer of the Year: Fezan Bhatti
· Team Leader of the Year (AFA Insolvency): Kerry Summerfield
