We are thrilled to be involved in an initiative celebrating the role of women in the workplace – the Women In Business Awards, 2016. Run by The Business Magazine, Women in Business celebrates encourages and inspires successful and aspiring business women in the south. Alongside other supporters including Barclays, Taylor Made, Blake Morgan and Clarify, we sponsored the awards and worked extensively with the organisers and other sponsors to make the initiative a great success.

The awards themselves are each designed to discover and reward exceptional women who through leadership, entrepreneurialism, mentoring skills and/or ideas, stand out from their colleagues. Culminating in a gala dinner on the 15th September 2016, the winners of each of the five categories were announced, including those in our sponsored category: ‘Board Level and Senior Executive of the Year’.

In fact, Julia Bolsom, our head of Marketing, was personally involved in the selection process so we all felt a direct connection to the those shortlisted for their achievements. It’s the first time we’ve sponsored an event of this type, and given the feedback we’ve received from businesses and business people, we’ll certainly be doing it again.
