What do you do?
I’m the Managing Director for Evans Insurance, based in Central Romford.
We’re a firm of Insurance Brokers offering advice and bespoke insurance products, along with all-year-round support including Claims Handling Assistance. Most of our clients are business owners or landlords.
What challenges have you faced?
Initially, learning to run a business was a steep learning curve. When I started out, I was skilled in my trade but had no business experience.
A few years later, I’ve overcome this by working with a business coach, surrounding myself with successful business owners and committing to continued development.
“Since winning the awards we’ve raised our profile locally, grown our client base and been asked to be involved in some really exciting projects”

What has happened since winning the Business of the Year award?
When I was announced as Business Person of the Year in 2016, I was totally shocked and I’m still very proud to have won such a prestigious award.
Since then, so many doors have opened for me and my business – we’ve raised our profile locally, grown our client base and been asked to be involved in some really exciting projects; all off the back of winning the Award.
I highly recommend engaging with the Havering Business Awards and hope to be a part of the process in some way for many years to come
