Toowoomba businesswoman Jessica Ritchie has come away from the national St George Bank Ausmumpreneur Awards with a bronze award for Business Coach of the Year. Hosted in Melbourne Ritchie succeeded in a highly competitive category amongst a room of more than 400 attendees, after a pair of Jessica’s clients nominated her for the award.

As a professional brand and connection expert, Jessica works with some of Australia’s leading and ASX listed brands including Golden Circle, Tony Ferguson, Supercheap Auto, BCF, Ray’s Outdoors, Tourism Queensland and more. Also working as a reiki practitioner and a neuro-linguistic programming practitioner, Jessica finds she can tie in a holistic approach to branding, where she can amplify and centre energy into marketing and communications. As a qualified business and life coach, Jessica offers a tailored variety of mentoring, coaching and creative services.

Being the founder of the Wondrous Women Group, which regularly hosts events that aim to inspire, connect and empower women Ritchie says,”It’s been wonderful to be recognised at a national level and the support that I’ve received and the awareness that has been generated for my business has been wonderful. Having worked with large corporates and ASX listed companies, I am passionate about assisting small and medium businesses to have access to marketing strategies and learn the skills to feel empowered to propel their business forward with a strategy and voice to stand out in a noisy and competitive world.”
