We spoke to last year’s Business Person of the Year winner Kayleigh Bysouth of Busy Bee Recruitment Ltd and found out what life has been like since winning.

She said: “Since being announced as winner of Business Person of the Year I have been very fortunate in that I have now been asked to sponsor the event for 2020 and the team of people I have working for me in my business has doubled due to interest in working with my organisation.

“Winning my award in 2019 was a huge success for me personally and one I will never forget, for the business our expansion into larger premises and the increase in staff members has further seen the business progress.

“Now hitting £1,000,000 turnover is a huge milestone for us and one we remain highly proud of!

“Winning the awards was one of the proudest moments of my life – I feel it was a recognition of my efforts and dedication to my career.

“I would thoroughly recommend to any business considering entering the awards to do so! Having been a winner for two years in a row and now being a judge in 2020 it has not only accelerated my own career but has been instrumental in the development of my business.

“I will be forever grateful for the opportunities it has presented to me.”
