Deadline looms for Enterprising Women nominations

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

The final deadline for nominations for the 2018 East Midlands Chamber Enterprising Women Awards is Friday 5 January.

Winners will be announced at a glittering, ‘little black dress’ dinner on 2 March – coinciding with 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 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 – the 21st year of the competition: Business Woman of the Year, Social Commitment, Apprentice of the Year, Female Employee of the Year, Female Entrepreneur of the Year, Team of the Year and Small Business of the Year.

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 2018 awards.”

Chamber membership is a requirement for nomination. For an application pack email e@m-n.ouwecdlc.k or call the Chamber’s events team on 0333 320 0333 and select ‘option 2’ when prompted.
