ACT at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards

Last year, Athlete Career Transition was thrilled to support the Great British Entrepreneur Awards, recognising some of the UK’s most exciting business ventures in a variety of different fields. Sir Steve Redgrave delivered the keynote speech at the 2013 event, and both Andy and I enjoyed meeting a number of the nominated and winning entrepreneurs who have proved that Great Britain is one of the best places in the world to launch a new business.

With the previous year’s awards being such a memorable occasion, ACT is delighted to attend the 2014 event on 19 November.
