Likiliike Of The Year 2017 Awards

The Likiliike Of The Year 2017 winner Sanna Koivuranta has been actively engaged with events at Rovaniemi, as well as online. The awards were given out for the first time at the movement’s yearly meeting on Tuesday, October 10. The movement, which favors local services, already consists of 172 truly local companies, of which five were now awarded. Likiliike also got a new member in Väärti.

Likiliike 2017, or the Likiliikuttaja Of The Year award went to Sanna Koivuranta from the Beauty and Grooming Salon Sanna’s Style. Koivuranta has been actively engaged in Likiliike events such as the yearly Entrepreneur’s Day celebration at the Lordi Square. Koivuranta has also done an exemplary job online by highlighting the Likiliike brand and ideology on, among other places, her own YouTube-channel, where she gives weekly tutorials on makeup and products.

”At Likiliike events I’ve given passersby pampering treatments for small change. I’ve gotten tens of new clients – men, too – who have been encouraged to visit my salon as early as the week following the event, right after we’ve made initial acquaintance,” says Sanna Koivuranta, whose sales and personnel numbers have grown thanks to Likiliike.

The Likiteko (”Liki-action”) Of The Year awards were given to florist Mervi Kontio at Kukkakauppa Helmi and Satu Antinkaapo from bakery Kotileipomo Antinkaapo. The florist and the baker volunteered to bake Christmas goods to the elderly and disabled customers of home service. According to the jury, the act was a small gesture that showed they care. Being a part of the everyday life of the local community and helping those in need is in the spirit of Likiliike. In the future, all members of Likiliike are invited to do good deeds that help the local people.

Petri Teppo

Social Media Person Of The Year, Volunteer Of The Year, and Newcomer Of The Year awards

The Social Media award went to Choco Deli and Jouko Rajanen, whose sweet updates have more than 9,000 Facebook likes and over 1,500 Instagram followers. The Volunteer prize was handed to Petri Teppo from Studio Artica.

”It shows great attitude when a professional photographer is present at every Likiliike event, as a volunteer,” the jury praised.

The Newcomer award was given to the real estate agency Lapin Laatukodit LKV, in whose operations the entire family is involved – as is local tradition. Raija, Hemmo and Milla Lehtisalo are active participants who visibly display that they are members of the Likiliike community.

The awards were handed at the movement’s first ”general meeting” at Wetteri. 70 Likiliike –companies were present. Wetteri Rovaniemi, together with the Pohjolan Osuuspankki bank and Alma Media, is one of the Väärti-companies that support Likiliike. At the meeting, a fourth Väärti company was announced: the bookstore Suomalainen Kirjakauppa.

”Suomalainen Kirjakauppa is a part of the Otava enterprise, which is a Finnish family company. Likiliike sits well with the company’s values, one of which is to be close to the customer. I’ve closely followed the branding of Likiliike and have noted that it’s been done with style and skill. Likiliike is known and respected all over town. We want to be a part of it,” says Heli Helenius, the manager of Suomalainen Kirjakauppa.

The host of the night was Brillet entrepreneur Pasi Hiukka, who was elected to continue as Project Manager for Likiliike.

Music school Pop Up Lappi, Likiliike number 166, took care of the music for the night.
