MENTA Session Brings Business Awards to Start Up Business

It was just eight months ago that Dayle Bayliss booked her one to one business advice session with MENTA’s Senior Business Advisor, Leanne Castle. Since then Dayle has taken all of the advice and suggestions given during that short one hour session and has already seen the benefits.

Recently Dayle won the EADT Anglian Young Business Person of the Year award and has been nominated for the Property Weeks Hot 100 under 35’s to watch in Property and Real Estate.

Dayle Bayliss is a busy woman. She has 10 years experience as a Chartered Building Surveyor, numerous professional qualifications and a drive that makes her a leading entrepreneur in Suffolk.

Leanne Castle of MENTA said, “Dayle has vast experience of the surveying and construction sectors, but it is her passion and energy for sharing knowledge, encouraging young people and engaging communities that makes her stand out. She is totally focused and has an infectious enthusiasm for her profession.”

Recently Dayle became a STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Maths) Ambassador and works with the Eastern Business Partnership to engage with schools to promote Science Technology Engineering and Maths.  She is also involved with 5 local schools and ISG Plc for the Women in Construction event for year 9 pupils; as well as at Combs Middle School, focusing on a Paralympic wheel chair challenge.

When not dealing with her clients or attending numerous career events, she is also the Chairman of RICS matrics Suffolk, which is a section of the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors supporting student members and members with less than 10 years post RICS qualification experience.  Indeed, the success of this group has seen Dayle now rise to the challenge of sitting on the UK board for RICS matrics and working with the RICS to promote surveying to schools as a career choice across the UK.

Dayle started her own chartered building surveyor practice in October 2011, following redundancy. Since then she has secured the construction design and project management of an English wine visitors centre, a restaurant and shop in the Essex countryside, as well as working on the feasibility scheme for a community enterprise regeneration project.

She believes that community engagement and development are key target areas for growth for business; and cultivating this local engagement and development stimulates economic growth in both construction and the community. She said, “The ideas of community support and young person engagement are part of my business strategy. Through continual networking and promotion I am hopeful that this philosophy will see continued business growth, especially in the construction and surveying sectors that have been hit so severely by the economic down turn.”
