Yesterday was an unforgettable day. Some of you may remember that back in January I won a Small Business Sunday (#SBS) award from Theo Paphitis (well known from Dragons Den)…yesterday was the day I met Theo and he presented me with the certificate. Here we are together:
Winning the award coincided with the time I was leaving my NHS job and launching myself full-time into running my business and being a mum. It was a HUGE confidence boost and since then I’ve really been flying. Dietitian UK now runs regular clinics including eating disorder clinics, works closely with South Coast Fatigue helping clients with Chronic Fatigue, does a lot of media work and I am now the dietitian for Slimsticks too. I also works with other businesses helping them with nutritional leaflets, PR comments, training staff, doing menu analysis and more. It’s been a fantastic 3 months.
So yesterday was the icing on the cake. We travelled up to Birmingham and enjoyed networking with the other #SBS winners. They really are a great bunch of businesses. Theo gave an inspirational talk that has given me more insight into how to move forward and encouraged me that I can do this.
I’m looking forward to all that being an #SBS winner will bring and learning more from not only Theo but also the other business winners. If you want to know more about #SBS here is the website.
A massive thank you goes to Theo Paphitis and also to the Ryman Group who hosted the event.
