28 Mar I won APCTC Specialist Coach of 2015
It hasn’t quite sunk in yet! Thank you all for your votes and making this possible.
This is how it all happened at last nights Awards Ceremony …
I was honoured and excited even to be shortlisted for Specialist Coach of 2015 at the APCTC Awards. It was a highly competitive category with 12 nominees. The winners of each category were being announced at the APCTC Awards Ceremony last night.
I arrived at the Central London hotel with my awesome agent Becca Barr and my dear friend Kim Kelsey who came to cheer me on. The ballroom was packed with 180 guests in black tie. We were sharing a table with my fabulous friend Mel Carnegie, author of “I’m Still Standing” and creator of DNA Light Up who was also a nominee.
It was amazing to be in the company of so many talented coaches and to hear their inspiring stories. So many of them have
overcome extreme adversity to help others and it was really moving to listen to.
Our host for the night read out the names of nominees for each category and then opened a large gold envelope to reveal the winner.
Cheers went up from our table at 8pm as fabulous Mel Carnegie very deservedly won Executive Coach of 2015. I had to wait until 10.30pm to get to the announcement for my category … A long wait!
Finally it was Specialist Coach of the Year category. Votes had been counted and the top 3 candidates were then subjected to a judging panel of 5 well respected names in the personal development industry against a strict 5 point criteria including website, niche, testimonials, effectiveness and results.
It was one of the best moments of my whole career when my name was announced as the winner. I had a dream four years ago to be helping others cope better with divorce and now it’s a reality. And to top that I have been recognised by a judging panel that I admire and respect. I am so over the moon!
This awards means the world to me because is has put Divorce Coaching well and truly on the map. I can help many more people and have already been asked to speak at a conference following the event last night. I have big plans to help many more people around the world and last night took me a huge leap closer.
In my acceptance speech I dedicated my award to my little boy who has and always will be my inspiration.
