Katy Jobbins founder and head trainer of the Permanent Makeup Training Academy based in Wivelsfield, only 4 months ago gave birth of her third child, a little girl named Annabelle, and now she has 3 more reasons to celebrate. She has just been shortlisted as a finalist in 3 major awards at the 2018 East Sussex Women in Business Awards.
She has been named as a finalist for ‘Business Woman of the Year’, ‘Mentor of the Year’ and despite her age of just 33, also been selected in the final 4 for the prestigious ‘Lifetime Achievement’ Award.
This is amazingly the third time she has been up for a ‘Lifetime Achievement’ Award, the first being when she was only 30 years old.
The awards are dedicated to recognising and celebrating successful female entrepreneurs across the East Sussex area. The winners will be announced at the awards presentation evening taking place at the Cavendish Hotel in Eastbourne on Friday the 20th of July at a glamorous black tie event.
Katy has already won over 10 major local, national and even global awards since setting up her permanent makeup treatment and training centre in 2011 and upon hearing the news of her latest 3 award nominations Katy said:
“I am deeply moved once again to be shortlisted for so many prestigious awards. I’m especially excited to be shortlisted for the ‘Mentor of the Year’ award as I pride myself in my dedication to helping my trainees & students set up and grow their own businesses. I love taking people from all types of backgrounds and help them set up successful businesses in the permanent makeup industry. I find the more time I dedicate to helping and mentoring others, whilst continuing to develop ways to help their businesses grow, the more people are attracted to training with me. It’s a win, win all around. I love what I do and am thankful every day to be able to do it, and be recognised in this way for my work.”
