Finalist for Young Businesswoman of the Year: Jade Scammells

On the 10th March 2023, we attended the prestigious Kent Women in Business Awards 2023 ceremony, held at Ashford International Hotel. Our founder, Jade, was a finalist for Young Businesswoman of the Year. Sadly, it wasn’t her year and she didn’t win but to make it as a finalist for this regional award is incredible. Hundreds of nominations were put forward for this award and to make it as a finalist in the Top 8 is pretty impressive.

“I’m so proud to be a finalist for Young Businesswoman of the Year 2023. It was an honour to be in a room full of 300 inspirational women in business and to celebrate the achievements of each and every one. Listening to everyone’s journeys was motivating and really helped me visualise what Journeys Made could be in the future and what my life could be like. It’s very exciting and I’m so grateful to my customers for giving me this opportunity.”, says Jade.
