Newcastle’s Stuart Maitland crowned Britain’s Top Real Role Model 2013
Young Newcastle entrepreneur Stuart Maitland, 21, has been crowned Britain’s Top Real Role Model 2013 (BTRRM) by global direct selling company Amway.
The competition, now in its third year, aimed to uncover the nation’s most inspiring young entrepreneur, awarding them a £5,000 prize to help support their start-up business venture.
Facing some fierce competition from some of the UK’s most promising young entrepreneurs, Stuart convinced the BTRRM judging panel that he had the attitude, passion, determination and ambition to be an inspiring role model.
His medical app company, mHealthful demonstrated both his business creativity and that he was a keen advocator of change, all key elements the judging panel were looking out for.
The company specialises in creating medical apps for patients and healthcare professionals and aims to significantly improve the quality of healthcare through mobile solutions.
Currently studying Medicine at the University of Newcastle, Stuart’s medical training skills inspired mHealthful’s first venture, UniWikis, a collaborative medical education website and mobile app that allows medical students to add and edit each other’s notes, supported by leading medical textbook publishers and insurers.
Stuart says of winning this year’s campaign: “I am delighted to have won Britain’s Top Real Role Model 2013. Since an early age, I’ve held a desire to make a real difference to people’s lives and now I feel one step closer to achieving this. I hope that by winning this competition I will inspire a new generation of medical entrepreneurs.”
Sheryl Franklin-Worth, Corporate Affairs Manager at Amway UK and one of the 2013 judges said: “There were some highly credible entries to the competition this year. I am thrilled that the campaign can inspire a generation of young entrepreneurs and Stuart is a real role model for enterprise.
