Deadline looms for Enterprising Women nominations

The annual quest to find the region’s most successful and inspirational businesswomen will end soon after Christmas.

The final deadline for nominations for the 2019 East Midlands Chamber* Enterprising Women Awards is Friday 4 January.

Winners will be announced at a glittering, ‘little black dress’ dinner on 8 March –International Women’s Day.

 

Eileen Richards, founder of ER Recruitment, Leicester, a member of the Chamber’s Board of Directors and one of the Co-Chairs of Enterprising Women, said: “If any enterprising women have time over the Christmas break – between balancing work and family through the holidays – then it would be an ideal time to nominate themselves or someone else for an award.

 

“Enterprising Women is all about finding and recognising women who make a serious contribution to the regional economy, often successfully balancing work, keeping home and motherhood but not always being acknowledged for what they achieve.”

 

There are seven awards to be won this year: Business Woman of the Year (sponsored by Pick Everard), Social Commitment (Hastings), Apprentice of the Year (Derby College), Female Employee of the Year (Smallman and Sons), Female Entrepreneur of the Year (Leicester Racecourse), Team of the Year (Leicester Tigers) and Small Business of the Year (The Belmont Hotel).

 

Co-Chair Jean Mountain, a Past President at East Midlands Chamber, said: “By highlighting their contribution and telling their stories, hopefully we can inspire other women to pursue their business dream, which is why I would urge as many people as possible to send in nominations for the 2019 awards.”

 

Chamber membership is a requirement for nominees. Anyone can nominate. For more information visit https://bit.ly/2LBXq49. For an application pack email ew@emc-dnl.co.uk or call the Chamber’s events team on 0333 320 0333 and select ‘option 2’ when prompted.
