Our Business at Home category award sponsor, direct selling business Amway UK, has joined forces with multi-award winning Interior Designer and ex Dragon’s Den star, Kelly Hoppen MBE to find Britain’s most inspiring ‘Passionprener’.
The search for Britain’s Top Real Role Model is an annual competition that aims to support and celebrate entrepreneurship. Each year, the initiative has a theme and for its fifth anniversary, Kelly Hoppen and Amway UK are looking for an amazing ‘Passionpreneur’. The winner will be crowned Britain’s Top Real Role Model 2015 and receive a £5,000 cash investment for their business.
The competition is open to businessmen and women, just like those celebrated at the Women Leaders MK Business Awards, who have launched a venture inspired by a hobby, passion or interest of theirs. From photography to upholstery, skydiving to painting – if a passion has become a viable commercial enterprise, trading and registered in the UK, Amway and Kelly want to hear more!
Kelly talks about her involvement with Britain’s Top Real Role Model: “Amway’s campaign to reward entrepreneurialism is brilliant!”
“Each year, lots of brave individuals take the bold leap to start up a business, so having an initiative that celebrates and acknowledges their determination gets my support.
“It can be difficult to take the first step as an entrepreneur but it is also an exciting time of self-discovery when you achieve what you once thought was impossible.
“Personally, there is a real resonance with Britain’s Top Real Role Model’s ‘Passionpreneur’ theme. My own Interior Design business started because of my passion for design. Businesses created off the back of a hobby or a passion tends are often the ones which goes to succeed!”
Britain’s Top Real Role Model is open to entries and applicants are invited to nominate themselves via www.btrrm2015.co.uk. The closing date for all nominations is 11th September 2015. The Judging Panel spearheaded by Kelly will draw up a shortlist with the eventual winner being announced on 5th October 2015.
