The Finalists in the women in business categories have all been interviewed by our Judging Panel.
Once again, our judges were overwhelmed by the amazing businesses they have seen throughout this process, which made their job especially difficult this year. There was much debate and after a 10 hour judging session, our judges concluded their deliberations and the Winners were chosen in each of the women in business categories. We are now working through the Rising Star and Special Achievement entries.
Over the coming days and weeks we will introduce you to all of our Finalists because we believe that they are all Winners and we would love to showcase each of them here. You can also play your part by supporting them and sending your good wishes.
Each of our Finalists are listed here along with their Twitter name so that you can follow each of them over the coming weeks.
