The founder of a Wanstead nursery has been announced as a finalist in the Black British Business Awards.
Connie Barrett founded Kids in Charge – which is based at Wanstead Youth Centre and also in Ilford – in 2007. “As a mother of five amazing children, I set out to provide flexible, guilt-free childcare to parents. A place where parents could be assured that their child is seen and treated as an individual and their needs are truly central to all planning and activities,” said Connie, who also works as a business coach, supporting entrepreneur’s and business owners via her Review, Refresh and Recast event.
The Black British Business Awards celebrates the exceptional performance and outstanding achievements of black professionals and business owners in the UK and empowers organisations with the necessary tools to attract, retain and progress their internal Black, Asian and minority ethnic talent.
Connie has been shortlisted for the Entrepreneur Senior Leader of the Year award.
This year’s winners’ ceremony will be held in the City of London on 29 September.
