Felicity Francis, from Stamford, is crowned Peterborough Small Business Personality for 2019 at the Peterborough Small Business Awards
A Stamford business woman has said receiving an award has spurred her on even more to help businesses succeed.
Felicity Francis, 34, won Business Personality of the Year for 2019 from The Small Business Awards which covers businesses in the Peterborough area.
The awards ceremony took place at the Holiday Inn at Thorpe Wood in Peterborough on Saturday, October 12.
The award covered both her Talk Results telemarketing and Talk Networking companies.
She said: “Winning the award was absolutely amazing.
“The reason the judges gave for giving me the award was not because I am the loudest, which I’m, perfectly capable of being, but because of the support and help that I give to business and that means the world to me.
“It’s just spurred me on even more to help our businesses and I’ll do as much as I can for any business owner.
“Our businesses here are just incredible.”
The married mother of one, who is originally from Molesworth between Huntingdon and Thrapson, has lived in Stamford since 2007 and is completely self-taught.
She set up Talk Networking after realising that most networking groups were not flexible and affordable for businesses.
“It took me the best part of five years to prove that networking the way I do it does work,” she said.
“When you’re running a networking group, you’re more than the person coordinating them - you’re giving them your time freely to help them grow and develop.”
