What People Say About Us

"Donna was brought in to help us with our submissions for the Law Society Excellence Awards. Donna came in and advised us what we needed to do and we won the Law Society Excellence Award for Business Development. This meant a lot to us as the Law society is our professional body and we had tough competition. We would definitely use Donna again and would have no hesitation in recommending her to other businesses – she truly is an expert in her field."

What People Say About Us

"Fantastic How to Win Awards Masterclass today. Lots to think about and take back to the business."

Megan Walker, ABA Quality Monitoring

What People Say About Us

"Previously I’d chucked applications at awards and then stood back and hoped, I hadn’t applied any strategy and I certainly hadn’t really thought through the content. At today's How to Win Awards Masterclass, you’ve helped me far beyond award applications. Your delivery was perfect; informative, supporting and light."

David Williams, Shuttle

What People Say About Us

"Donna helped us to understand all the different elements of the Queen's Award application process. The application itself looked hugely complex and time-consuming, which is an added stress when you are busy running a business. Donna took that stress away and helped us to see how what we considered business as usual was in fact incredibly important to our application"

Simon Murie CEo SwimTrek, Queen's award for enterprise for innovation 2017 winners


What People Say About Us

"Donna's guidance and advice was invaluable when preparing our submission for a number of awards this year. We knew we had a compelling case and Donna made us rethink how we presented the information to ensure that we didn't waste any words or valuable presentation time. She helped us to lay out the detail in a way that ensured judges could clearly see compelling evidence aligned to judging criteria. Donna challenged our thinking and helped us to ensure that nothing was left to chance. Time spent with Donna was time very well invested!"

Moyra Smith, Mercuri International 


What People Say About Us

"Donna’s masterclass gave me a fantastic insight into what it takes to win awards. It made me look at entering awards differently and made me approach the process in a new way. I found how to write awards part of the day extremely useful as this is something that can be carried forward and used on a day to day basis."
