Last November I was nominated for a Venus Award. It’s a women in business event and aims to recognise the different aspects of business for women whether it’s an entrepreneur, a working mum or a corporate high flyer. I had to submit an application and then wait…
Last night Marshall Volkswagen Reading hosted the semi-finalist announcements for the 18 awards. It was networking in a car showroom with some shiny VWs to look at (not really my thing), bubbles to drink (damn, I’m not drinking at the mo) and canapes to much on.
I had applied last year and wasn’t too sure which award categories I was in, so was pretty damn chuffed to be through to the next round (semi finals) in the Inspirational Woman award! It’s sponsored by Reading University and I’ve been whittled down to the last 5 or 6 from 55 who applied. That’s pretty amazing and I am delighted!
The next event to announce the finalists is on April 6 and so all I can say for now is watch this space!
Here I am with my accountability buddy and business chum Natasha Kearslake from Organic P&O Solutions..
