Entrepreneur

Angela Wilson, the franchisor of Angela’s Swim School, has been shortlisted as a finalist for The Duke of York New Entrepreneur of the Year Award thanks to her success in switching from international swimmer to thriving business owner.

The accolade, part of the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards 2015, celebrates people demonstrating entrepreneurial aptitude, commercial acumen, vision, ambition and drive.

Angela is a former international swimmer who was British champion in 400m and 800m freestyle when she was just 15 years old. She began teaching while at international events and realised she could give something back by training others, particularly focusing on technique. Her business has grown rapidly in the south-east since and was franchised in 2013.

Of her nomination, Angela said: “As a swim school it is a great opportunity to be recognised for all the hard work and effort put into getting the business to this point in 18 months. I am honoured to be considered for the award.”

Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony on 10 November in London, in front of an expected audience of over 1,200 people.
