Advisor wins award
Chamber adviser wins award
A business adviser at the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce has won a regional award for her own business venture.
Rita Booth advises start-up and recently established businesses in her role with the Chamber but also runs her own successful company, RPB Coaching, which was established in 2016 and offers life purpose coaching.
Through the business, Rita supports people who have through trauma and helps to give them more confidence to achieve their goals. For some, that can simply be leading a happier life while for others it can be working towards a life-fulfilling ambition.
Rita has worked with more than 200 people since establishing RPB Coaching and some of her clients put her forward for a NoW Network award, where she picked up the prize for Business Community Champion.
She said: “I had no idea I was even up for an award so I was shocked to win it! “I found out that a few of my clients had nominated me and then insisted I come along to the awards. I was cheering everyone else on and so I was quite surprised to hear my own name read out as a winner.”
Rita is a business adviser in the Chamber’s start-up team three days a week and calls on her own expertise and experience in running RPB Coaching to help those just establishing a new venture.
She said: “When I am working with start-up businesses through the Chamber, I know exactly what they are going through. They might not know how to fill in a self-assessment form, for example, but I can tell them that it’s not a scary process and give them pointers on what they need to do.
“That’s just one example but I think it is really important to understand what the business is trying to achieve and to then advise them on what they need to do in a personal way that is easy to understand.
“I am always honest with those people who are just starting out in business and make sure they understand exactly what it is they should expect. I really enjoy the role with the Chamber and being able to offer this free support to businesses that are just starting out.”
Operations manager at the Coventry and Warwickshire Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are all thrilled that Rita has won this much-deserved award. “She is extremely humble about her achievements but it’s clear that her clients place huge value on the help they have received and that’s why they put Rita forward.
“It’s great for her Chamber clients to know, also, that they are working with someone who has set-up and runs an award-winning business as they know they are receiving advice from someone who has been there and done it!”
