Finalist in BPA awards – again!
I’m very excited to announce that I am through to the final of the Baby Products Association’s 2018 Concept & Innovation Awards. I’m the only person in the history of the awards to make it through as a finalist more than once. Wooop!
I presented my idea to the Judges on Monday 5th February 2018. The ‘Dragon’s Den’ style presentation was to a judging panel comprised of the following industry experts:-
Robert Anslow, Chairman of several committees covering BSI and CEN safety standards, MD of the Baby Products Association and organiser of Harrogate International Nursery Fair who is also called upon as an expert witness in court relating to safety and performance of baby/nursery equipment;
Anne Smith from ANEC, the European consumer voice in standardisation which defends consumer interests in the process of standardisation and certification;
Rachelle Harel, Sales and Marketing Consultant to the nursery trade and MD of RHSM Group;
Ian Davidson, owner of the independent retail store Babylicious
Christine Scippo, Managing Director of Kaleidoscope Communications who has worked with a variety of industries for almost 20 years including baby products and toys.
I will be showcasing my idea to the entire industry at Harrogate International Nursery Fair in March. The winners of the awards will be announced on the first day of the fair – Sunday 25thMarch I’m going for gold this time… wish me luck!
