Celebrate your success

When running a business or a busy career, we rarely stop to celebrate the successes we've had. It's about time you stop, stand up and be rewarded for the hard work you're all doing. And the awards ceremonies are great fun.

Recognise your achievements

Setting up great businesses, expanding into new regions, opening shops, being an indispensable PA, trailblazing your industry and all the great things women are doing need recognising and celebrating. Let's stop being so British and shout from the rooftops!

Invest in other women

We're better together. We need other women to inspire us, help us, guide us and mentor the next generation of talent. By networking with all our successful nominees you'll be investing your time and great connections will be made.

“Winning the Award last year has made a huge difference both to me personally, and also to my business. I am much more confident in speaking about my  journey, and the process you have to go through has also given me faith in myself and taught me about raising my own profile, which in turn  helps the company.”

“The ongoing PR has been really helpful, particularly since I work in such a male-dominated environment. I think it’s really important that women  receive the recognition they deserve and hope that my achievements will also inspire other women in this industry.”

Alexa Greaves, AAG Systems

“Winning Business Woman of the Year made a huge impact on me and my business.”
