Portadown dental practice DJ Maguire and Associates has lots to smile about as the local firm has picked up  the 'Star Award' which was presented to them at the prestigious 'Celebrating Success' awards gala in Parliament Buildings, Stormont on Friday. 


Chief Executive of The Chartered Management Institute, (CMI) Ann Francke arrived in Northern Ireland from London last week to host the prestigious awards ceremony organised by Belfast consulting firm Next Level Impact with  DJ Maguire and Associates being awarded the top title, the 'Star Award' at the event.


The prestigious award was presented to the organisation who has applied what they've learned on Next Level Impact's management and leadership programme to make a real difference within their organisation.

With so many high-achieving mangers representing businesses from across the province attending the prestigious gala awards event, all of them receiving awards for management & leadership qualifications, but it was DJ Maguire and Associates which secured the 'Star Award' having put their learning best into practice. 


Derek Maguire, Managing Director of DJ Maguire and Associates who accepted the award from a shortlist of five businesses from across Northern Ireland congratulated both his team and the organisers in his acceptance speech.


Derek Maguire says: “We’ve worked with Next Level Impact over many years and this collaboration has been very beneficial, especially in developing our 5 years business strategy. This has helped us not only to improve the patient journey but to nurture and strengthen team effort. We are delighted to have received this Star Award on behalf of our practice at a very enjoyable gala awards event at Stormont.”


Martin Rice, CEO of Next Level Impact, the event organisers and one of the judges said DJ Maguire & Associates were very worthy winners of this award because they have demonstrated with perfect example how to put management theory into best practice and the results speak for themselves.


Martin Rice CEO Next Level Impact continues: "DJ Maguire Associates have proven how organisations can effectively use training to take to business to the next level.  The positive changes I have seen this business accomplish has been nothing short of spectacular and what is important here is the whole team is part of this success, it has been a tremendous pleasure to be a part of their success".
