The finalists of this year’s Dorset Venus Awards Revealed – and I’m one of them!

Absolutely delighted to be a finalist in this year’s Venus Women Awards! I’m in the PlayGolf Bournemouth judged Category of Networker of the Year, up against 2 other very inspirational Dorset business women. I’m looking forward to the Awards Ceremony so much, I even have my dress picked out already!

The Finalists Announcement saw over 100 guests that included Semi-Finalists, Sponsors and guests who were treated to an afternoon tea in the Cumberland Hotel’s stunning art-deco surroundings. Where I was also taking photos!

The Awards in Dorset were launched at Playgolf Bournemouth in April this year and participants have been whittled down to the Finalists stage by either sponsor judging or public voting. Sponsors and candidates have attended a variety of events over the intervening months to reach this point. The Awards celebrate the vital contribution that women in business make to the local, regional, and national economy. The Awards are unique in that anyone can nominate a friend, client or family member.

The Venus journey will culminate in a glamorous Ceremony and Gala Dinner to be held at Bournemouth International Centre on Thursday 20th October 2016 with this year’s charity sponsor BOO, whose aim is to help African children who are disadvantaged through economic poverty.
