“The nominees are from a wide range of sectors and this is a wonderful opportunity to acknowledge the achievements of women who are continuing to set new benchmarks in leadership and excellence in their organisations.
“In all the categories there are always stories of tremendous achievement, often in the face of adversity, as well as valuable advice from lessons they have learned to build successful companies or overcome barriers to achieve their personal goals.
“These awards are also a great way of raising each company’s and individual’s regional and national profile as well as the opportunity to network with some of the most successful businesswomen in Britain at our awards ceremony.”
