Hi Safety Squad,
August has been so exciting and we’re only half way through, here’s what we’ve been up to…
Wales Start Up Awards
In July I was shortlisted as Young Entrepreneur of the Year with the Wales Start Up Awards! The awards are for businesses that are less than 3 years old so it was our last chance to enter…and also my last chance to be deemed as ‘young’ so we jumped at the chance to be part of the awards.
I was shortlisted with business owners from three other fantastic companies and we all had to face a panel interview on the 4th August. The interview was a five minute presentation followed by a 10 minute Q&A in front of 6 judges!! Which was nerve wracking but so exciting as well. In the waiting area before the interview, I met Lilly and Angus from The Bridge Lodge – they were lovely and had tasty treats with them!
The Awards will take place at The Depot in Cardiff on 15th September…I’ll keep you posted on how they go, I’m sure there will be some Sure Safety snaps from the night too!
The 35 Under 35
Yesterday went a little bit crazy – we found out that I’ve been recognised as ‘one of the top young business and professional women in Wales in 2017’.
The Wales Online 35 under 35 lists are compiled every year, last week the men’s list was released and this week was the women’s turn.
I’m honoured to be included on the list, it’s great to see the hard work we put in at Sure Safety being recognised.
Also on the list this year is a very good friend of mine, Cariann Emanuelli from Wize Virtual Admin. Cariann and I used to dance together when we were younger, competing on the Latin American dance circuit. It’s amazing to think that we have both gone on to start our own successful businesses and get recognised in the same year.
Strictly dancing to strictly business!

We are now offering first aid courses – both 1 day and 3 days. If you’re looking to refresh your first aid training or you’re not sure what’s needed to be compliant give us a call on 029 2086 8802.
We’ve received a glowing testimonial from our friends at SA Brain, it’s at the bottom of our home page. We have been working with SA Brain since November 2015 and I’m really proud of what we have achieved to date. It’s even better to see how happy they are with us as well!
More kind words from our clients coming in the next few months so keep your eyes peeled!
New to the Safety Squad…
There’s some exciting new projects coming up with lots of ideas to keep us growing and innovating. We’re always looking at new ways to make safety simple but effective and I’m looking forward to telling you more soon!
So like I said…exciting times!!
