Our Founder and Head Coach, Simon Ellson, attended the Dorchester and Poundbury Business Awards yesterday afternoon! Hosted at Minterne Host, following all current COVID-19 regulations, the awards were live streamed live on YouTube for those unable to attend in person.


It was a fabulous afternoon of celebrating local businesses and their successes in what has been an unprecedented and very difficult year for businesses.  Simon was very happy to be able to attend and said “I was inspired to see how local businesses have flourished despite the pandemic and being able to celebrate in person made the afternoon even more enjoyable”.


At ActionCOACH West Dorset we love celebrating success so to be able to attend the awards which celebrated such a wide variety of businesses including arts and crafts, hospitality, health, beauty and fitness and retail was brilliant. Company’s were recognised for their commitment to customer service, the community and employee welfare and mental health amongst various other categories.


Organised by Nigel Reeve at Marketing West SW Ltd, there were many local sponsors including the Dorchester Hub News, Dorset Growth Hub, Mind Dorset and us at ActionCOACH West Dorset.


We were proud to sponsor the SME of the Year! The winner was RiskCostAssessment.com, a local building insurance valuation company based in Poundbury. The award was presented to William Molland, the company’s director.
