A Southam woman who left the busy corporate world six years ago to retrain as a pilates instructor has celebrated being named as a finalist in a national business competition.
Diane Clark, of Pilates With Diane, was named in the small business of the year category in the Networking Mummies UK National Business Awards.
The nomination was in recognition of the work Diane has done to build up her classes since her career switch several years ago.
Diane said: “I’ve built my classes from one class a week at the local leisure centre five years ago, to seven regular classes per week.
“These classes are within the community, at health clubs as well as at the Cloisters Physiotherapy Clinic.
“The business has grown recently with a new class starting in Warwick town centre.
“To be recognised for this work in the Networking Mummies award was a great pleasure.”
Diane said her career switch six years ago has allowed her to improve her work and life balance and her role also helps keep her fit.
Networking Mummies UK Ltd has 27 branches in the UK and supports mums, dads and families in business at free networking events and workshops.
This is the second time Networking Mummies UK Ltd has hosted its National Business Awards to recognise hard-working mums and dads across the country.
