Alison Edgar, Managing Director of Chippenham-based
Sales Coaching Solutions, has been awarded an MBE in the Queen’s Birthday
Alison is well-known within the small
business community across the UK and has been supporting entrepreneurs since
she started her business in 2011.
In the past she has been named one of
the UK’s Top Ten Business Advisers by Enterprise Nation and has given talks on
her ‘intrapreneurship’ methodology to multinational corporations such as Sky
and The Discovery Channel.
In 2016 she was invited to attend the
Queen’s Royal Garden Party in recognition of her dedication to entrepreneurship
in the UK.
In addition to her work in the business
world, Alison supports her local community and recently visited schools in
Chippenham and Marlborough to mentor and inspire students. She is also a judge
and sponsor for Young Enterprise.
Alison said, “Growing up in a high-rise
council flat in a small town near Glasgow, receiving an honour was something
which I couldn’t have imagined would have been possible.
“The work I do is, and always has been,
to help support businesses and the wider economy, so it’s outstanding to have
been recognised by the Queen for one of the highest honours in the land.
“This recognition will inspire me to
continue to help entrepreneurs and businesses going forward.”
