Ladey heads up the family business: Ladey Adey Publications where she publishes books for ambitious business people, people who want to write but are overwhelmed and children’s authors. Ladey considers books as friends, she wrote her first book in 2014 and is now writing her eleventh book! She knows books change lives and sees this happen daily with her clients. Ladey, and her team, guide authors through a bespoke Author Mentoring Programme, ensuring they receive 100% copyright, 100% control and 100% royalty with their books ready for Amazon and bookshops. We believe there is a book in everyone!

The judges loved the way that Ladey adapted her business through the pandemic – demonstrating 350% in business growth.  She completely understands the challenges faced by people with Dyslexia and has adapted her business model to not only support budding authors overcome their challenges but also to get their idea successfully to market.  It was a 10 out of 10 from us!

Congratulations to all the Finalists in this Category

I was so delighted to be shortlisted as a finalist. To be recognised for something that I am so passionate about is amazing. 
The whole experience gives you a huge confidence boost and I would highly recommend anyone who hasn’t nominated themselves for an award before to go for it!
