“WOW! I hope the fact that I’m a finalist demonstrates that regardless of circumstance or set backs you experience in life you can succeed. Fifteen years ago an amazing lady started teaching me a skill. That skill was barbering and it’s allowed me to travel the world and set up my own business. That lady’s name is Michelle Ludlow and she’s my mum – it’s really my mum that deserves this award!”
Jac Ludlow, Best Business Leader
