Meet the Dabbers Den Winner 2019

Education is never far from people’s minds, whether it is their own children, those of friends or relatives or as a hot topic for politicians. This year’s winner of Dabbers Den understands how important education is – both as a mother and as a business woman. We are delighted to announce the winner of the 2019 competition is Su Turner and her business Insight to Impact Consulting Ltd.

Su is the founder and driving force behind the business. As a national governance expert with a track record for improvement Su understood how important it is for school governors to be able to overcome the barriers they face in their roles and help maximise their time to be effective and efficient in their undertaking of governance to ensure they deliver real impact. Through this she developed her solution – Shaping Governance ®.

The Dabbers Den judges were extremely impressed by Su’s drive and determination, they commented that her presentation was exceptional and that her passion and commitment to educate school Governors shone through.

On receiving the news of her success Su commented: “We are delighted to have won Dabbers Den 2019.  Shaping Governance® is making a real difference to school governance in Cheshire and beyond; and winning this means that we can broaden our reach and help more schools and pupils benefit”.

This year the standard of shortlisted entries has been extremely high and the judges had a difficult task to make a final decision. Martin Webb, partner at Howard Worth, said “Each year we are more impressed by the individuals that stand in front of us and tell us the story of their businesses and their plans for the future. Su demonstrated the highest level of knowledge and showed us how her persistence and determination has made the difference in making her business a success”.   

As first place winner Su will receive a £3,000 cash prize for her business, 12 months accountancy mentoring from Howard Worth Accountants and a Business Legal Health check from Poole Alcock Solicitors.

Second place in the competition went to The Little Cheshire Gallery – a new art gallery in the centre of Nantwich offering an outlet for local artists and more established names. Third place was awarded to Florists, Wild Bramble Blooms – who offer rustic floral designs for all occasions.
