The School’s virtual HQ is in Dorset and operates an online business with a global team in Europe, North America and Asia.

Going up against other finalists, Formula Botanica will compete for the prestigious award, with the winner being revealed at the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards gala dinner held on 10 November at Park Lane’s Grosvenor House Hotel in London.
Lorraine Dallmeier, Director of Formula Botanica, said: “Our shortlisting for the Digital Business of the Year award is a great honour and achievement. After the last three years’ huge commitment and hard work, we are now the world’s leading organic cosmetic science training school with over 1,000 global students and graduates. Formula Botanica’s online courses have helped start or grow many natural skincare businesses by teaching skincare entrepreneurs in over 70 countries. Being shortlisted is a significant endorsement of our business and demonstrates that the industry has taken notice of our success. We are proud and excited to be in the running for this award.”
An all encompassing range of industries are represented in the shortlists for this year’s awards, with companies from recruitment and children’s clothing, to pet food and online marketing being selected for the chance to win a coveted Lloyds Bank National Business Award. The scale of the finalists is just as varied, with companies turning over less than a million pounds to over £25 million, employing 20 people or over 70,000 people.
Tom Broughton, Programme Director of the National Business Awards said: “The quality and range of this year’s entries exceed even those of last year, which is no mean feat. The draw of being involved with the Lloyds Bank National Business Awards has seen companies from all kinds of industries submit applications, which have been narrowed down using our thorough and comprehensive review system. We are now looking forward to the next step in the judging process and meeting some of the finalists face-to-face.”
