everywomanawards Emma Harrison, founder of training business A4e set up in the 80s to provide opportunity for redundant Sheffield steal workers, has today been named as the winner of the annual Everywoman Awards.

This year A4e, which now trades internationally, has reached turnover targets of £100 million and has plans in place to reach £500 million turnover by 2014.

Emma’s entrepreneurial flare and the rapid organic growth of her business clearly caught the eye of judges at the awards, but her business ethos of ‘doing well by doing good’ also played a major part in her success.

Emma is no stranger to awards, however, having reached the finals of the Veuve Clicquot Business Woman of the Year in 2006.  She’s also been recognised for having donated an incredible £57 million through A4e to the NSPCC’s Fullstop campaign.

Karen Gill, founder of Everywoman, said:

Her philosophy of ‘doing well by doing good’ is a lesson to all of us that integrity and worthy business aims can underpin commercial success.
