Holistic Therapist Magazine held our first Holistic Business Awards this weekend on the 4th of October at Olympia Beauty’s Health and Wellbeing stage which was sponsored by Holistic Therapist Magazine. The awards were a huge success leaving winners and runners overwhelmed with emotion. Our Holistic Business Awards are all about recognising those who TRULY deserve to be recognised for all the hard work, passion, tenacity and vision to truly make a difference doing what they love.

We invited a panel of respectable, unbiased and equally passionate industry leaders with a wealth of personal experiences to judge the process which was described by one judge as one of the most difficult decisions they have had to make. Our judges were David Balen of Balens insurance, Marylin Glenville of Glenville Nutrition, and Liz Badger of Face the World.

The Holistic Therapist Magazines Director Jayson Firmager and operations Director Vicky Killick were overwhelmed by the applications that came in which crept into the hundreds. Reading through the applications many brought a tear to the eye of our team which confirmed to us that the Holistic Business Awards approach to erradicate voting systems and implement a true and fair judging system which acknowledges those incredible individuals for what they have come through and achieved, regardless of the size of their social media reach and/or budget which allowed those previously forgotten to truly shine.

We commend you all, Winners, Runners up and shortlisters. You are all an inspiration to the industry, us and those around you. Congratulations
