LHP Shortlisted in South West Awards
We’re so proud of our director Janet Collins here at LHP today. She’s just been shortlisted for The Female Entrepreneur of The Year Award with South West Awards. With over 1,501 nominations and over 100 in each category, that’s some achievement.
Janet has been key in driving growth of our dynamic practice, from small accountancy firm in its earlier days, to the UK wide award-winning cloud accountancy practice and regional firm with 6 offices across West Wales that it is today. Janet’s support has been described by clients as ‘our 4th emergency service’ throughout the pandemic; on furlough support, managing cash flow and mentoring. She works closely with regional business hubs and most recently appeared on national radio (Radio Cymru), noting the impact of rising costs of fuel and food on retailers, with many now on reduced opening hours.
As a Chartered Accountant and Probate specialist with decades of business leadership, Janet also nurtures professional development of 70+ staff as HR Director as well as many of the 7,000 clients. She supports staff from all levels – a lot start as junior or semi-qualified team members and work hard towards their ACCA/ACA qualifications to senior accountant level.
Janet branched out with 4Ivy just this year, as a result for her passion to want to support female entrepreneurs across West Wales by bringing them together as a business community to empower and inspire as a collective. Her new venture complements that of LHP, supporting new and existing female business owners with networking opportunities and advice.
Fingers crossed and well done for making the shortlist Janet! We look forward to the awards ceremony towards the end of the year. Janet receives regular feedback on our Client Stories features too, which also serve to inspire other entrepreneurs or budding ones in the region.
Good luck to the other nominees! Shortlist
