I'm practicing my gracious loser face...
Shortlisted for the Natwest Great British Entrepreneur Awards
Thrilled to announce that I've been shortlisted for the 2017 Great British Entrepreneur Awards! Crazy! Now in its fifth year, the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards has celebrated some amazing entrepreneurs, many of whom are now household names. Past winners include David Buttress of Just Eat, Julie Deane of The Cambridge Satchel Company, James Watt of BrewDog and Alexander Solomou of TheLADBible Group.
With over 1000 businesses entering the awards nationally across the wide range of categories, I'm beyond amazed to make the regional shortlist. So naturally, I'm super excited! (excited shrieking commences)
There are some truly inspiring Entrepreneurs that have been shortlisted so I'm definitely practicing my gracious loser face. (must find a mirror). But I don't feel blue, it's enough to have been nominated and shortlisted, let alone to be among such amazing business owners! *clap clap. It is truly an honour! Congratulations to all the finalists! See you all at the gala evening on the 1st November!
