Suzanne founded Spicer & Co in 2014 with one employee and now has a team of nine, including her husband, Steve, and sister, Annette.

She said: “I’m thrilled to be part of these prestigious awards.

“I’m really looking forward to meeting the other finalists and celebrate our achievements as women in business.”

Suzanne, who live in Leighton Buzzard with Steve and their children, said: “Of course we’d love to win and bring the award back to our Dunstable office.

“An award would be wonderful recognition for the work we do in helping our clients to save money, and we think they would all be extremely proud of us.”

Spicer & Co organises networking events to connect local businesses and regularly supports charity events in Dunstable.

The awards, which recognise great women in the business community, will be held at the Tower Hotel in London later this month.
