“It’s amazing to have been chosen as a finalist in such a competitive category, and so in our eyes we are already winners.

As finalists last year, we loved the process and we loved the community that Sandra has put together around the Woman Who Achieves Awards. Being able to meet up with so many like-minded women business leaders is inspirational and we are thrilled to be a part of it again this year.”

“I am delighted and immensely honoured to be a finalist in this year’s Women Who Achieves awards. 

To be amongst such a phenomenal group of women is a wonderful personal achievement for me in my first year of business, celebrating not only qVirtual, but being recognised as a female founder who decided to prioritise not only success but also happiness in my life. 

I’m really looking forward to a wonderful day of networking, celebrating and meeting some amazing women!”  

Colette Walls


“Reaching the finals of this award has given me the confidence that we are on the right path.

In 2019, we cancelled our balance bike distribution contract to concentrate on improving the performance and manufacturing quality of kids bikes. Shifting from heading up the Strider brand, to completely starting again, is an exciting challenge and one I am thoroughly enjoying, but comes with a big financial risk.

Bootstrapping a new bike brand in the very competitive cycling industry means fighting imposter syndrome almost daily, so this has given me a much needed boost.”
