She only went and did it! Toni Chalk, Managing Director at Strive AV, was announced ‘Business Person of the Year’ on Thursday 23 March at a glittering ceremony at The Grand Hotel, Brighton.

The evening started with a Pre-Dinner Reception, followed by a sumptuous three-course meal before the winners were announced. Several members of the Strive AV team were there to celebrate with Toni, providing a rapturous cheer as her name was announced to a packed audience.

Toni said: “This award really means a lot to me. Since rebranding in 2021, we’ve had to work extra hard to get the Strive AV name out there and continue to meet our business goals. The last few years have been an incredible, yet challenging, journey for me, so getting recognition at a local level for all the hard work feels amazing!”

Now in its 15th year, the Gatwick Diamond Business Awards is a well-established highlight of the business calendar in Sussex and Surrey, strongly supported by the Gatwick Diamond business community with Headline Sponsors Elekta Ltd and Gatwick Airport Ltd.

This year’s ceremony was hosted by comedian and actress Kerry Godliman, who presented Toni with her award alongside Matthew Tyson, Managing Director of Richard Place Dobson, the award sponsor.

Of course, the Strive AV celebrated in style at the After-Show Party, dancing well into the early hours. Congratulations Toni!
