A business owner from the Wirral who received support from Enterprise Hub has won a prestigious Podcasting for Business Awards.

Gaby Mendes, 25, was shortlisted from hundreds of entries and won in the Best Education Podcast category of the inaugural Podcasting for Business Awards. The awards were announced in a fun, virtual online ceremony on the 26th of January, 2021. “As a former teacher, and considering how young the podcast is, winning an award for the Best Education Podcast has truly made my year” said Gaby, who is the host of the Talk Twenties Podcast.

The awards are the brainchild of Lynsay Anne Gould, who is a top-rated podcaster, podcast agency owner and business coach. The Podcasting for Business Awards’ main aim is to celebrate the creativity of new and seasoned podcasters and help them reach a wider audience. Podcasting has taken off globally with Apple currently hosting over 1.68 million podcasts and there are over 10 million weekly podcast listeners here in the UK.[1]

Founder of the Awards, Lynsay Anne says, “A big congratulations to all the winners. The PFB Awards are a celebration of all independent podcasting and we love sharing the amazing achievements of podcasters across many different genres. A big thank you to all our judges and sponsors who made the 2021 awards a massive success.”

“We absolutely love showcasing indie podcasters and their shows in the awards and we will be hosting the event annually. I am passionate about getting more diverse voices and ideas heard via the marvellous medium of podcasting.”
