A Northern Ireland woman with an impressive record of achievements has secured high praise from some of the biggest names in the business world.
Double Olympian and eleven-time British figure skating champion Jenna McCorkell pitched her sports clothing brand Chique Sport to the team at BBC’s Dragons’ Den this week.
The Coleraine based entrepreneur may not have left the Den with an investment offer, but instead secured recognition of her business success to date.

Speaking about her experience on the programme, Jenna said: “Taking part in Dragons’ Den has been hugely rewarding. My core goal on entering the Den was to build brand awareness of Chique Sport with a new and more diverse audience base, beyond the world of ice sports.
"I have been delighted and overwhelmed by the early response since the programme aired and I am immensely proud to have been involved.
"Whilst it was nerve-wrecking to pitch to the Dragons’, their wider feedback, encouragement, and endorsement was incredible.
"It has reinforced my confidence that I’m making the right strategic decisions to grow my business – and has absolutely inspired me to keep doing what I am doing."
