The Hull-based winner of an international business award has thanked the people who nominated her for the accolade.
Di Garbera, a director at Golding Computer Services, was put forward by companies in the region for the quality and flexibility of the training courses which had made a “real difference” to their businesses.
Di scooped the title of Tutor of the Year at the International Association of Bookkeepers’ (IAB) Awards held at Westminster Palace in London.
The IAB is a membership organisation which provides support and services to bookkeepers, accountants and finance professionals.
Di said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to win the award, and so grateful to the clients who nominated me.
“I can honestly say that the most important part of it is taking the opportunity to get some recognition for our business and to raise awareness of the training courses, because it can be difficult to persuade employers to make time for training.
“We work hard to make them aware of the opportunities provided by funding and distance learning, which enable them to improve their businesses without having to commit huge amounts of time and money.
“Winning this award helps us get that message across and will hopefully build confidence among businesses that their computerised accounting training is in safe hands.”
Over the years Di has trained hundreds of people aged from 14 to 66 mainly in the Hull and Humber region and also as far away as Chester, Kent and Scotland.
Most of the trainees come from small businesses with fewer than 50 staff, and they benefit from Golding’s success in securing funding and from Di’s expertise and dedication with distance learning.
