“My business has grown by 65% since winning the award! The publicity in the local paper in Ceredigion made local business owners aware of my consultancy. Introducing myself as Independent HR Consultant of the Year has been amazing.” - Julie Grabham, 2019 winner
“HR Star has given me a raised profile externally and I have had a few invitations to step into the public speaking arena to tell my story and share the successes we have had... This has been a great opportunity not only for me personally but also for the organisation to share and celebrate its success.” – Kelly Mordecai, 2018 winner
