“Winning has opened up doors and introduced me to so many inspirational peers. It has raised my profile - from radio interviews to local press - and firmly made me stand out as a leader in my field of facials. It has been an amazing process, and going through the awards application is a great practice to reflect on the wins a year can bring and highlight just how much we actually do to make ourselves and our businesses excel.”
Katie Pearson – Mobile Therapist Winner 2023
“Go for it! I learnt so much along the way, from editing videos all the way through to improving my treatments. I really pushed myself out of my comfort zone and I haven't looked back.
