John Palmer, Chair of the Panel of Judges said, “For Joanne to win for a second consecutive year is both brave and also tremendously impressive to see the passion to drive both personal development and business growth forward at the pace that Joanne has done in the last 12 months. There have been some incredibly tough candidates to beat over the last 2 years and Joanne has continued to impress our Panel of Judges across the range of questions we set.

Joanne and her business has won through once again – being the very first to win 2 years in a row since the UK VA Awards began in 2007 – congratulations, well done, and what next Joanne?”
