“First of all I cannot believe I won! Thank you to all the organisers, sponsors, and judges of this event. It was an incredible night and a testing and exciting judging process to be part of. I am honoured to have won the Best Coach category. I would like to give credit to all the other silver finalists, you all have amazing businesses so congratulations to you all.”
"There were also some personal highlights for me from attending these awards that I didn't expect. The first was getting to meet the host on the night Professional Actress/Humorous Motivational Speaker/Host/Presenter/MC/Entrepreneur Clare Hingott. We hit it off straight away, and now we have a partnership collaboration in the pipeline and she has agreed to be my guest on the Pivot Leadership Podcast in the new year. Secondly, I was asked to feature as a guest on another Leadership podcast, and thirdly I met Krushma Makwana a Silver Finalist in my category and she agreed to join my associate team in January - that's the power of networking."
