Proud Coach and Winner

Local Business Coach and Female-Led freight company win coveted prize at an event attended by Lord Alan Sugar.

The Biz X 2021 Business Excellence Forum and Awards event recently attended (online) by thousands of businesses and their business coaches, boasted speakers such as Olympian Anna Hemmings, No.1 Hypnotherapist Paul Mckenna, and Lord Sugar during this packed 2-day event celebrating established UK entrepreneurs.

ActionCOACH business growth specialist Angela Turton said “ I work with businesses in and around the local area to reach their full potential, through one-to-one coaching and seminars.

I have been working with Sara Hutchinson who is Managing Director of RISA (UK) Ltd a female-led freight company for over a year. I decided to put Sara forward as a nominee for ‘Best Import/Export Industry UK’ because it is unusual to find a female-owned business in a traditionally masculine industry, and I felt that Sara’s hard work of 20 years offering a ‘high-end’ level of service in the freight industry needed some well-deserved recognition.”

Angela was delighted to hear that Sara had reached the finalist shortlist and later Stephen Mulhern announced RISA (UK) Ltd as the winner stating “Most industries have been affected of late, not many more so than the freight industry, but despite that Risa has continued to go from strength to strength with their high-class offering. In such a male-dominated industry, it is great to see a female-owned, and led, truly independent UK business thrive in such tough trading conditions.”

During Sara’s acceptance speech she openly thanked her business coach Angela Turton for her help and support.

Angela said “I am so pleased for Sara. Having coached her for over a year, I have seen first-hand her dogged determination to ensure her business is truly ‘Great with Freight’.  As her business coach, I have immense pride when Sara achieves her goals, and I very much look forward to continuing to support her as she takes her business onto bigger and even better things.”

Angela who jointly owns ActionCOACH Oakham & Kettering with her husband Rupert, is proud to have a ‘Best Import/Export Business as a client and is preparing to ‘shape up’ her other clients on her One-to-one coaching programme for their future success too!
