Do you want to attend but worried about being on your own? Don't be! FL National Awards & Summit is known to be one of the most diverse and welcoming. Here is what one guest had to say.
"I really enjoyed the event. It was the best networking/business lunch/awards event I have attended in the last 10 years. What made it different, was the spirit of the other women I met; all were looking at ways we could help each other, not trying to show off. A truly inspiring afternoon. It will be a pleasure to join the organisation and I look forward to other events." Michelle Cuffe, Managing Director, Excel Fostering
Here are the top 8 reasons why you should book your ticket and come on down to the most inspirational celebration of talent and achievement in the UK:
Meet the FL Family!
The awards are designed to provide you with the best networking opportunities irrespective of gender, industry and sector. Meet our keynotes, mix and mingle with the shortlisted finalists and VIP guests, say hello to the FL team and make the most of the networking drinks reception which opens each event.
Finalists and guests alike will find the awards present a perfect moment to reflect and take stock. The encouragement and inspiration we hope you take away from the event, will give you the chance to evaluate how far you’ve come in your career, and inspire you to take your next step forward.
If you work alongside others or want to celebrate with your loved ones, attending the awards together is your chance to say thank you for the support they have given you. You can treat the special people in your life to a day of inspiration and empowerment.
Be inspired by the other amazing women in the room and feel empowered. At each final, we will hear from inspirational speakers on their personal and professional stories, as well as from the CEO of Forward Ladies, Griselda Togobo.
Give and Gain
If you work for yourself, you are starting out in your career or you are in a senior position, it can be difficult to find the right people to connect with. The awards will enable you to meet your peers, gain insight into other’s careers and give your expert advice in turn.

You will have the opportunity to connect with our sponsors, including LNER, tastecard, IoD, LCF Law, Envirovent and many more.
Should you be a shortlisted finalist or the worthy winner of your awards category, you will have a wealth of opportunities to take advantage of. Both shortlisting and winning will give you a prestigious endorsement from FL, create well-earned publicity, boost staff morale, as well as attract talent and prospects to your business.
