Thank YOU! You voted me one of UK's Top 10 Business Advisers 2018!
I was totally stunned to be awarded the Enterprise Nation's Top 10 Business Adviser, winning the PR category! Watch the lights go out on my TKU vid below!
I will let you into a secret however...when I first heard I had been nominated and that it would be won by number of votes, my first reaction was "Oh no! I am going to have to canvass and get visible, I don't want to!" So I had to walk my daily talk to my clients and show up everywhere. Even my hero Jeremy Vine voted for me! #Don'tAskDon'tGet

Ooops a bit of an expletive as we're about to go live on air!! I spend my life teaching experts how to get onto TV, radio and in the press, so about time I walked my talk! ;-)
Alison Edgar and I joined Enterprise Nation's founder Emma Jones on her regular LBC Business Hour slot with Beverly Turner, standing in for Clive Bull. So it was an all woman affair (wo)manning the phone lines giving out business advice!
Dream comes true!
Turn down the volume on the vid below, it's the moment I was announced as winner - lots of whooping!
Here we are, the UK's Top 10 Business Advisers!
Seconds after winning the award! I had to immediately thank ALL my lovely voters on 'social' and it went VIRAL!
A double win for Team Ruiz as client Peter Lawrence of Human Capital Dept scoops to HR adviser!

Great to see The Book Journey Mentor, Danni Bletchner at the event supporting her partner Dean who had been nominated as top 50 Adviser!
