We’re so excited to share the news that Kate and Tracey Redmond, founders of the Style Coaching Institute®, have been shortlisted as Health & Beauty Awards Finalists in the 2019 Great British Entrepreneur Awards.
Now in their seventh year, the GBEA awards celebrate the incredible stories that have taken entrepreneurs to where they are today. They received a record number of applications this year (well over 3,000) but we’re proud to say that we’ve made it through to our regional finals due to take place in Birmingham in September. We are honoured to have reached this far in the competition, but of course it would a dream come true if we were to make it all the way to the National Final which will take centre stage during Global Entrepreneurship Week in London in November.
The Great British Entrepreneur Awards are hailed as the benchmark for entrepreneurial success in the UK. Previous winners include;
- Julie Deane OBE – Cambridge Satchel Company
- James Watt – BrewDog
- Nish and Sach Kukadia – SecretSales.com
- Darren Westlake – Crowdcube
- Rowan Gormley – Naked Wines
- Carrie Green – Female Entrepreneur Association
- Shaun Pulfrey – Tangle Teezer
Revealing the 2019 finalists, founder of the NatWest Great British Entrepreneur Awards, Francesca James, said: “With the changes to the format of the Awards, 2019 was always going to be an exciting year for us. But looking at the shortlist, I can safely say this is our strongest year yet. We have such a diverse range of businesses in terms of size and industry, and the calibre really is quite incredible.
“I wish each and every single finalist the very best of luck, and look forward to welcoming them to the regional finals.”
The judges for the Health & Beauty Awards are Dame Mary Perkins (Co-founder and Board Member of Specsavers Group), Susie Ma (Founder and CEO of Tropic, the UK’s fastest-growing skincare brand) and Sanjay Vadera (Founder of The Fragrance Shop). They are now in the process of reviewing all of the applications, so needless to say, we’re keeping everything crossed and hoping to reach London as National Finalists in November!
Wish us luck!!
