We are delighted to be holding our 5th Woman Who Achieves Awards Lunch at Coombe Abbey Hotel on Friday 1st May 2020. This year we have a brand new Award… the Woman Who Achieves Phoenix Award.

Have you risen from the ashes?

Take a look at the entry criteria below and ENTER NOW

Woman Who Achieves Phoenix Award (New for 2020)

You are a woman in business who is either employed or running your own business. You have a story to tell about how you have risen from the ashes. You’ve experienced a journey that has brought you to where you are today, full of set backs and challenges, which you have overcome.


The Judges want to hear about your story, but this is also about your business/career and how you’ve completely turned things around.
Many of us have experienced adversity and set backs, but the judges want to know about what you are doing now and how those challenges have helped you rise from the ashes like a Phoenix.
You may have changed career completely, started a completely new business or changed direction in your existing career or business.

*Entrants for the Phoenix Award will not be interviewed*

ENTER NOW  (Deadline Midnight on Sunday 23rd February 2020)

The Phoenix Award is a category that I felt needed to be included this year.

I am in the very privileged position of reading all the entries as they are submitted. The stories, set backs and challenges are truly amazing but as women, we tend to brush ourselves down and get on with it.

We have all been there.

So, I decided to invite these truly inspirational women to share their stories by entering this category.

I’m so relieved that I don’t have to judge them though as this is going to be a really tough challenge.”
