Awards success for Business Debtline adviser Dawn Jennings

Business Debtline adviser Dawn Jennings walked away with a coveted ‘Debt Counsellor of the Year’ award at last night’s Credit Today Awards.

The award recognises an ability to deal with cases constructively and sympathetically, displaying technical and legal knowledge, listening and communication skills and raising awareness of personal debt issues within the organisation.

Dawn has been a Business Debtline adviser for three years, having first joined National Debtline in April 2009 – and is widely respected here at the Money Advice Trust as one of our foremost experts in business debt advice.  Last year she helped more than 1,800 self-employed people and small business owners deal with unmanageable debts.  This contributed to Business Debtline’s success in helping 55 percent of its clients overcome their immediate financial problems and continue to trade.

National Debtline adviser Susie Johnson was also shortlisted for the award along with three other finalists.

Money Advice Trust chief executive Joanna Elson said: “We are delighted that both Dawn and Susie’s achievements have been recognised at the Credit Today Awards – and congratulations in particular to Dawn her award as Debt Counsellor of the Year.  This is a real testament to her and to the whole Business Debtline team.”
