Inspirational women with commerce clout will be celebrated at the seventh annual IMAGE Businesswomen of the Year Awards this November.
So if you are particularly inspired by your female boss, colleague, or friend – or even fancy yourself as a bit of a leader in the field, get the nominations in.
The closing date for entries is looming, however, as this Friday 25 October is the last day that names of these beacons of business will be accepted.
The prestigious accolade has been handed to powerful, innovative and driven women over the last six years under categories that include ‘management professional’, ‘social entrepreneurship’, ‘young businesswoman’ – for the spring chickens – and of course, the coveted ‘IMAGE Businesswoman of the Year’.
Last year’s winners include Susan Whelan, senior executive VP at King Power Group, Head of Leicester City Football Club (Businesswomen of the Year); Margaret O’Connor, Joint MD, Quigley’s Bakery (Entrepreneur of the Year); Ann-Marie O’Neill, joint MD, O’Donnell O’Neill Associates (Creative Businesswoman); Deirdre O’Brien, Director of Sales & Marketing, Carton House (Management Professional); Joan Freeman, founder and CEO of Pieta House (Social Entrepreneur); Grainne Barron, Foxframe Technology (Start-Up); and Sophie Morris, director Kooky Dough (Young Businesswoman of The Year).
