The Collingwood Learning team certainly has plenty to celebrate this month! In addition to our recent shortlisting for two Education Resources Awards, our very own Lindsay Richards has been named as one of Yorkshire’s ‘42 under 42’.

Business Insider’s annual listing of the 42 young businesspeople to watch over the coming year is one of the most sought-after accolades on any young businessperson’s wish list and we’re delighted to see Account Director, Lindsay Richards, making the grade.

Having established Collingwood Learning (alongside Chris Simes) in 2009, Lindsay has played an integral part in growing the company while navigating divorce, life as a single parent and a child with a diagnosis of autism – all with no local family network to support her.

Why 42? Well, the average age of the Insider Power and Rich List is 52, so this event is designed to look ahead and predict who will be the leading business figures in ten years’ time – a talent-scouting exercise if you will, unearthing some of the best young business talent!

We can’t think of anyone more deserving of this award – and we don’t know where we would be without her. Congratulations, Lindsay!
