As part of the Nouveau Group strategy, we are passionate about supporting talented individuals, who share our ethos and support our mission. Through this strategy we award one individual per year with the Nouveau Affiliate award.
This person demonstrates a passion and enthusiasm towards improving health and wellbeing within their local community. Each Nouveau Affiliate is provided with support, guidance and training, to ensure the Nouveau movement is shared within communities across the UK and beyond.
Our 2017 Nouveau Affiliate is Sophie Simpson from Leeds:
“I was attracted to Nouveau because of its positive aims and working within health and wellbeing is something that really motivates me. ”
Has becoming a Nouveau Affiliate helped you and why?
I would say that it has given me the platform to progress. As I was already working with Nouveau Wellbeing it has been an easy transition to move into running my own enterprise.
What has been your biggest achievement since becoming 2017 Nouveau Affiliate?
I applied to the Social School of Entrepreneurs to develop my enterprise and have been accepted. I started my programme in October and will graduate in a year as a CEO of my own social enterprise. This has all happened in the space of 5 months.
Do you feel your confidence has increased as a result of becoming a Nouveau Affiliate?
What has been the best part of being a Nouveau Affiliate?
I have learnt a lot about myself that I didn’t realise… Becoming an affiliate has made me re-think a lot of choices and has given me a massive confidence boost. I am now starting to believe in myself.
What are your plans for the future?
I am hoping to grow SS Dance & Wellbeing into a recognised organisation that people based in West Yorkshire will come to learn about a variety of ways to improve their general health, participate in wellbeing activities and be educated about healthy eating. I would like SS Dance & Wellbeing to make a visible impact on local communities, pushing forward the importance of individual health and I would like use my platform to help as many people as I can.
