Businesswoman Named a Finalist in (2 categories) Institute of Directors (IoD) Awards
Sam Hallett, Founding Director and Business Protection Specialist of Enable Life and Founding Director of Enable Future has made it through to the finals in 2 awards for Start-up (Enable Life) and Innovation (Enable Life & Enable Future) categories for Director of the year in the national and highly prestigious Institute of Directors awards.
“I am beyond delighted to have received an email from the awards organisers saying that I’d made the finals in the both Start-up and Innovation categories as Director of the year in the 2020 Institute of Directors Awards, I am very proud with this achievement. These awards are particularly significant to be known for running a successful business in the East Midlands and I’m honoured to have made the finals.”
Sam established Enable Life, a specialist insurance broker, in April 2019 after recovering from a suspected chronic illness which lead to her to resigning from her previous corporate role and live off her savings as she had no insurance protection in place to assist her. Adds Sam, “Health and wellbeing, including financial wellbeing, is now an absolute passion of mine. My story is far from unusual and with my company I want to help our clients avoid the mistakes I made and protect themselves, their businesses, employees and families.” In April 2020 Enable Future was incorporated as there has been a growing need to provide a quality service to clients at the same level as Enable Life, after meeting the right person to work with and the availability of online courses there was nothing holding Sam back.
Ceri Grace from the IoD said, “The year 2020 will go down as one of unprecedented challenge and change, with directors like you drawing on all of their talent and resilience to support staff, collaborate and innovate. The quality of the awards entries this year was very high, so making the shortlist is a great achievement. Congratulations!”
Sam will find out if she’ll be crowned Director of the Year for Start-up and Director of Year for Innovation on Thursday 12th November.
