National Business Women's Awards

‘Tis the season for awards!

Earlier this month, founder and Managing Director of Simply Amazing Training, Dee Clayton, was announced as one of the most influential businesswomen in the UK. She was a finalist in five categories in two national award ceremonies – the National Business Women’s Awards and the SME National Business Awards 2018. Dee says: “To be recognised as a finalist in five categories is, in itself, an achievement!”

National Business Women’s Awards

At the National Business Women’s Awards held at Wembley Stadium, Dee won Silver in the category ‘Influential Business Woman of the Year 2018’ and was a finalist in ‘Business Owner of the Year.’ The awards are a celebration of the very best women in business from across the UK and cover sole traders to businesses turning over £25-million or more. The welcome speech was delivered by Dawn Butler MP, Shadow Secretary of State for Women & Equalities.

Dee says: “I’m delighted to have won Silver in a long list of 14 other amazing and deserving businesses in my category. I am proud that our clients, colleagues and business associates have supported our award applications with testimonials about the powerful and positive impact of the training that my talented team deliver. On a personal note it’s great to celebrate successes with peers, so well done to all the finalists and winners who have achieved so much.”

SME Business Awards 2018

At the SME National Business Awards 2018, Simply Amazing Training was the only business to be a finalist in three categories: Enterprising Business of the Year; Entrepreneur of the Year (Dee Clayton); and Business Woman of the Year (Dee Clayton).

Jason Abbott, President of AmSafe Bridport, said: “Congratulations to Simply Amazing Training! Dee Clayton has worked with our Exec team individually to assess our personalities and development requirements and then helped us to create a more cohesive management team. The progress we have made would not have been achieved without her insight and expertise. We continue to use Dee and Simply Amazing Training for individual development of key personnel and for my management team including our General Manager in Sri Lanka who is responsible for 500+ people. We wish Dee a Simply Amazing 2019!”

In November, Dee was also a finalist in the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ category in The Venus Awards Dorset.
