Teens Unite’s CEO and Founder, Debbie Pezzani has been announced as a finalist in the Best Business Women Awards.

Debbie started the charity, which supports 13-24 year olds with cancer in 2007 from the spare room in her home and she continues to be the driving force behind Teens Unite’s success. Her original aim was to make a difference to the lives of 10 young people and eight years on she has made an impact on nearly 800 teenagers and young adults.

The Best Business Women Awards recognise the achievements of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who are making a difference not only in their own lives, but in the local community.

It has been a successful year for Debbie Pezzani whose work is now becoming widely recognised amongst the local community having won Entrepreneur of the Year in the FSB Hertfordshire Business Awards 2015 and being listed as a finalist in the Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards 2015.

Debbie has said: “I was nominated for the Best Business Women Awards by a member of my team, so I was overwhelmed when I heard I was a finalist. I still remain as passionate about Teens Unite as the day I started the charity and it’s progressed far beyond what I ever imagined.

Seeing the difference we are making to the lives of young people is the real reward, but it’s such a compliment to know that our hard work is recognised by groups such as the Best Business Women Awards.”
