Welcome to this years BWSVirtual Awards 2020
With the effect coronavirus has had on the world and the economy, it has never been a more important time to celebrate success. Entries are now open for this year’s Business Women Scotland Business Awards.
Back for a seventh year, the awards that mark the achievements of the growing number of women-led businesses and recognise the entrepreneurial talents of women across Scotland. Importantly, the awards also help to create more business role models to inspire the next generation of leaders. This year awards will go to women running their own business and those in larger organisations.
“It is more important than at any other time for women to enter the awards this year. These awards provide the perfect platform for women across all sectors in Scotland to showcase the vital contribution they are making to our business ecosystem,” said Lynne Kennedy MBE, founder of Business Women Scotland.
“We need more women to step forward and help us close the gender gap in enterprise, with just 20 per cent of SMEs in Scotland currently being majority owned and led by women.”
“It was a great honour to be awarded Established Business of the Year and Businesswoman of the Year at last year’s awards. The awards offer an opportunity for businesswomen at the top of their game – no matter the size of the business – to be recognised and celebrated,” said Heather Matthews, director of Little’s Chauffeur Drive.
The awards will be hosted by television presenter Rachel McTavish, ticket-holders can tune in from their office or living room.
