WONDERFUL WORCESTERSHIRE WOMEN 2016
The Wonderful Worcestershire Women Awards were spear-headed by Sarah Mayo-Evans, Director at Peach Recruitment and Julia Williams, Director at Premier Places.
The Awards follow the success of Wonderful Worcestershire Women, an event hosted by the pair in March 2015, which saw over 100 local female businesswomen come together for a day of networking and business-inspiring presentations. Since the awards Sarah and Julia are now organising regular WWW networking events and raising money for local charities.
The short-listed nominees were announced at the launch event in January at Browns @ The Quay in Worcester, a sell out event. Since then the public vote was open for 6 weeks, closing at the end of February. The top 5 in category were then interviewed by our judges in March.
The top 3 in each category were then awarded at the celebration awards event on Friday 29th April.
Sarah Mayo-Evans, Director at Peach Recruitment said, ‘The Wonderful Worcestershire Women Awards set out to recognise and reward females for their contribution to the county; be it running a successful business, working tirelessly for others or being an inspiration through significant personal or business achievement.’
Julia Williams, Director at Premier Places said, ‘This initiative represents the inspirational women of Worcestershire who balance and juggle their lives relentlessly, supporting their communities and playing such a pivotal role in developing our local economy.’ ‘We encouraged everyone to nominate any female that has inspired them and share their story and experience.’
From the awards, the Co-Founders have decided to organise future events for the Wonderful Worcestershire Women Community. The next event being a Business and Lifestyle show on Tuesday 27th September.
