As the Managing Director of Aqua Blue Distribution, Tim said “This award has come at an ideal time for us – both Robin and I are thrilled to have won. We’re so excited to start the coaching; having a customised, one-on-one session with an expert is absolutely invaluable for a small to medium business like ours”.
