Being honoured amongst the biggest global organisations such as IBM and GoDaddy, with attendees from all corners of the earth, all celebrating achievement was incredible. Set against the backdrop of Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in the biggest ballroom imaginable, the whole experience was just immense!
To have my first book become a international award winner, and to become a global award winning author is a truly astonishing feeling. The award speeches were broadcast around the world, and I was invited to the stage to say how much the awards meant to me. These hugely valued accolades acknowledge the effort and dedication it takes to be an author and a business development professional, and to be in such wonderful company of the best in the world makes me feel elated.”
