A Harpenden business owner has been announced as a finalist in an award celebrating women in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).
Fiona Sharratt, who founded life and productivity coaching programme EVO Goals, is a finalist for ‘best woman in STEM’ at the Best Business Women Awards, which recognise women’s achievements across a wide range of business categories.
EVO Goals, which is based in Roundwood Lane, is an online coaching programme which aims to help people take control over their lives and achieve more.
Fiona said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be shortlisted as a finalist for the best woman in STEM. It’s such an innovative time for time for technology with emerging cloud and mobile technologies and we’ve leveraged these to develop the EVO Goals platform.
“I spent years striving to improve my work-life balance and extensively researched the self-help market in the process. I found there was an overwhelming amount of information out there about how to work smarter or improve your life, but wading through countless books, blogs etc can use more of your time than it saves.
“So, I decided to bring all the best bits together in one place. EVO Goals is the result - a simple-to-use platform that combines life coaching and professional productivity coaching in one. My hope is that others grow from it as much as I have.”
The final of the Best Business Women Awards will be held on Thursday, October 11 at Tewin Bury Farm in Welwyn.
Organiser Debbie Gilbert said: “This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement.
“Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Almost 90 per cent of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.”
