Last year I was honoured to not only be nominated but voted for and won Dorset Business Mum of the Year (big thanks to Laura Morris, Darren Toms, Daddy Moo, Moo and Megan for all their help along the way!) and as you can seefrom this press release issued by the Awards for 2011 my category was a huge success. Sadly this year I am not allowed to be nominated for the title Dorset Business Mum of the Year but do remember all the hard work that other members of Networking Mummies achieve daily in their lives and if you do feel the need to tell me how lovely I am you know my email 😉
Enthusiasm was high at 1700 hours on 20th January 2011 when the official launch of The Langtry Manor Business Woman’s Awards took place at the award winning newly refurbished Langtry Manor Hotel.
Sponsors, winners, finalists and the media were out in force to celebrate and kick start the official launch with guests ready to spread the word of the awards for Dorset and New Forest women in business.
Founder Jackie Phillipson says “The awards are becoming a permanent fixture on the Dorset calendar and are well supported. For any business, the awards are a great way to maximise marketability and PR opportunities. This year there are eleven award categories and a newly created Lifetime Achievement Awards – all categories acknowledge the valuable contribution Dorset’s businesswomen make to the local economy. All categories are sponsored by female friendly companies.”
Nigel P Hedges President of Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce says, “Never under estimate the power of a woman, in today’s business world women are playing a huge role and bring a much wider range of people skills and determination to corporate business.”
