Danielle Dunn, the Derbyshire-based business woman who founded bath bomb and pampering business, Divine Box, has been shortlisted as one of the finalists for the ‘Business Hero’ award at the National Business Women’s Awards 2021. She will now get to attend a night of celebrations in Wembley in November.
Danielle started her bath bomb business one week before the first lockdown and has had to find ways not only to keep her business afloat but also manage the exceptional growth she's seen due to popular demand. She now has a team of six who she has helped to gain employment during the pandemic.
The National Business Women’s Awards recognise the fantastic achievements of amazing women business owners up and down the UK. The ‘Business Hero’ award specifically recognises the challenges that have been faced over the past 12 months and the people who have found innovative ways to overcome them. Reflecting on being shortlisted, Danielle says:
"I am through to the finals in a national business award. Even saying those words doesn’t feel real. To say starting a business just as the country went into lockdown has had its challenges would be a massive understatement, but through grit and determination we've managed to get through. Hopefully, our small bath bomb business will be able to celebrate a win in November with some fizz - pun intended.
