An award-winning Usborne Organiser

27th April 2016

Going for local awards is a fantastic way to gain press coverage and awareness for you and your business throughout your community. Group Leader, Kath Saunders recently received an award at the Businesses for Children Award Ceremony in Shropshire. Kath was nominated in three categories and had independent judges interview her (one of them even took a recruiting pack for her daughter!).

Here is what Kath had to say about her achievement:

"I wasn't expecting to win this award as I was up against some amazing local businesses. I know our opportunity is brilliant but winning has made me realise even more, just how great Usborne Books at Home is as a company. I have learnt that just being me is the best way to run my business. This has reignited my passion for recruiting and I'm really expecting to have some serious competition from my team next year!

The awards were featured in the local press and I've been featured on their Facebook page too. I was also seated next to the local events organiser for a lot of the Shrewsbury festivals and we now have a very good relationship, resulting in a huge event this weekend just past! £900 worth of sales in one day!"

The Business for Children Awards Team had this to say about Kath:

Born for Brilliant Books - Winner
"Kath Saunders is clearly working in an area she is passionate about and she is developing her business in a way that meets her personal interests as well creating opportunities for others.

As a teacher, Kath is committed to learning and helping others learn as well. Born for Brilliant Books helps her achieve this. She says she is supported by a very good company, Usborne Books at Home, but it is clear that Kath brings so much to her business. Her leadership and mentoring skills along with her keenness to share the opportunity with others is helping her develop it. She now has a large team and she is well on her way to achieving her dream. When asked why she should win the award, she said "so more people can see what is possible".

Many congratulations, Kath. You really are an inspiration!
