A consultancy with a big heart ended up in a David and Goliath battle with major UK firms at an energy efficiency event – and walked away with two major accolades.
The National Energy Efficiency Awards was launched in 2015 to support changes in the Government’s Energy Efficiency Policy.
And JT Consultancy Ltd received a special commendation for Best Social Responsibility Company of The Year at this year’s ceremony and for National Business Development Manager /Director of the Year.
The award acknowledged the consultancy’s innovative model which continues to create thousands of skilled jobs and provide affordable housing.
Development Director Ricky Sharma took Business Development Director of the Year, Ricky said: “I must say this has come as a surprise, we were certainly like David in a world of the Goliaths of the industry. I am truly grateful.
I must give a big thank you to all members of our team for their continued hard work and effort.
“But huge credit must be given to Dr Jan Telensky who has been a massive influence in my growth.”
Philanthropist and entrepreneur Dr Telensky has put his own energy in to improving life for others and making the world a better place.
His flagship hotel, AquaCity-Poprad, Slovakia, for instance is often described as the world’s greenest hotel. And his energy-efficient affordable housing projects across the UK have received many accolades.
Dr Telensky has a personal story which is equally inspiring … when he landed on the shores of Great Britain half a century ago he had just £2 to his name, couldn’t speak the language and was homeless.
So, he got a job on the assembly line at the Vauxhall car factory before going on to be a security guard at Luton airport.
Then in 1973, with the small amount of money he had saved, he bought a run-down delicatessen and never looked back.
JT Consultancy was up against organisations like Portsmouth City Council, Islington Council, FDG, Mitchell and Dickinson, JNR Contracting, Eco Target and YES Energy Solutions.
