Coras 2013 Testimonials

It has been a privilege to have participated in Coras2013 and an honour to have won, particularly with the standard of the competition. Of course the money will be a huge help, but Shawn’s mentorship will be invaluable in taking Fields of Fun to the next level.


Natalie Ash of Fields for Fun, Winner of Coras2013

Congratulations on a great event last night…. In all the evening felt like a triumph.


Richard Benyon MP, Member of Parliament for Newbury, Minister for the Natural Environment and Fisheries

It was both inspiring and fun, and superbly organised. I have no doubt that all five of the finalists will have taken a lot from the process which will be of real benefit to them in the future.


Derek Rodgers, Managing Partner of Gardner Leader

I wanted to thank you both for putting on such a wonderful event yesterday evening, I was still buzzing this morning! Above everything thank you for having the vision in the first place.


Melanie Millin Love Kombucha UK, Finalist of Coras2013

Congratulations on organising a tremendous event – hopefully the start of many to follow.


Paul Townsend , Senior Relationship Manager of NatWest Commercial Banking, Newbury

I do hope that Coras continues on and grows with the years. It was an empowering event in so many ways, and I have gained a confidence I never knew I had.


Debi Richens of Fitelle, Coras2013 Finalist

It was a great evening last week, congratulations for creating such lovely evening and for initiating this opportunity. I hope that the community appreciate the difference that this could make. II look forward to hearing the progress of the winning company.


Amanda Richards, Chief Executive EBP West Berkshire

Shawn I am so proud of what you have achieved. When you first mentioned your idea to me, I thought you might struggle to get support and find like minded people, who would be as generous and as giving as you were prepared to be. Well done on finding them and congratulations on such a showcase event. You totally epitomize what it means to give something back. This country needs more real people like you who care and show one person can make a difference.


Mary Flavelle, Business Menor

Shawn, last night was a blast – you have missed your key in life – showbiz! .. I suggest you get cracking on the next Coras event!


Claudio Bacci AML

We wanted to send you a quick note to congratulate you on holding a fantastic evening last night, and to thank you for inviting us to attend and to present. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire evening, and found it a great way to network.


Gary and Julia Brown of Track Your, Coras2013 Finalist

Amazing evening, thank you for providing the perfect platform and making me realise I can feel the fear and do it anyway.
