WINNER OF IPSE INSPIRE AWARD

Rebecca Shipham

Rebecca has been a Freelance Exhibition Designer since 2010. "Winning the IPSE Awards in 2014 gave me the confidence that I needed to develop and grow my business," she says. "Now, just a few years later, I have registered as a ltd company, have my own design studio, a growing client list, and I hire my own freelancers to do work for me!"

After winning the award Rebecca also set up a not for profit company delivering creative workshops to young people in disadvantaged areas, focussing on life skills needed in working life and in self-employment.
