The sun came out to launch the second year of the National Business Women’s Awards at Newmarket Racecourse on Saturday 8th June 2019. A mix of sponsors, judges and previous winners were invited to launch another year of celebration for women in business, followed by spectating the grand races.
Speaking on behalf of Gold sponsor, My Mustard, June Cory said “We are celebrating the determination and the resilience of some of the most incredible people", she goes on to add “it is all about excellence and celebrating excellence. As British people we are humble about talking about ourselves, talk about how brilliant you are!”
Suzy Wood, Charity Ambassador for Railway Children says, “These awards really give an opportunity to recognise women in business, as there are some really powerful women out there, doing amazing things and these awards are really lending themselves to recognising that.”
Winner in last year’s Best New Business category, Caroline Strawson says, “I think that when you enter an award and even become a finalist and then go on to win, the effect that it has on your business is amazing. For me posting on social media that I had won an award ultimately raised my profile and catapulted me to be an expert within my industry, so that I was able to attract more clients and be featured in national press.”
There are 16 categories to choose from and candidates can enter up to 3. Businesses of all sizes can enter at WWW.NBWAWARDS.CO.UK and entries are now open.
