Congratulations Julianne Ponan of Creative Nature, Finalist in the Woman Who Achieves Scale Up Category Sponsored by Clydesdale & Yorkshire Bank. You can see all the Finalists here

Congratulations Julianne, we look forward to seeing you at the Awards Lunch on 7th June.

I’m a young female entrepreneur that hasn’t let illness, severe allergies or peer bullying stop me from achieving my goals and building my company.

At 29, I can already tick two business dreams off my list; Opening the London Stock Exchange, and featuring on the Forbes Under 30 List. I’ve turned my anaphylaxis into a thriving business that helps other allergy sufferers eat safely and lets those without allergies enjoy healthier, tastier snacks and baked treats.

I’m also a motivational speaker, business mentor and comment on business and allergy related issues on Sky News, BBC and the national press.

Paul Reeves, of Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank who is based in Birmingham, attended the Woman Who Achieves Awards 2018 with his colleague. Paul said:

We are delighted to be supporting the Woman Who Awards in 2019 which are all about recognising great women in the business community. The business world is full of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who not only run successful businesses but in many cases also juggle the needs of their families and we are privileged to support these awards.” (Paul Reeves)

Paul is running the Virgin London Marathon on Sunday in aid of Dementia Revolution, a charity which has a personal connection for Paul. The bank will match Paul’s fundraising pound for pound. Please show him your support. You can sponsor Paul HERE

For over 175 years we’ve stayed close to home, supporting the communities we’re part of and never forgetting what people really need from a bank. Being closer to our customers is at the heart of everything we do, because to care about here means always understanding how to better serve the people who live here.
We’re a bank that’s big enough to provide competitive products, but small enough to offer a more personal touch.

Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank are sponsoring the Woman Who Achieves Scale Up Category at the 2019 Awards, which take place at Coombe Abbey on Friday 7th June 2019.

BOOK NOW (Limited tickets available) to come along for an afternoon of inspiration, celebration and entertainment to show your support for all our Women in Business and Rising Stars.
