Are you a woman in business and a great networker?


Woman Who Achieves through Networking Award

You are a woman in business who understands the concept of networking and its emphasis on building relationships in business.  You may host your own network meetings, attend networking group(s), and network via various events and social media platforms.

You support others in business, work on growing your own network, whilst sharing your own business networking contacts, and recognising the value that networking can have both in your own business and by helping others grow their business through networking and referrals.

Most importantly you have grown your business through networking.


The Judges want to hear about your networking skills, your successes, and how you have grown your client base or customers through networking.

Tell us how you network and especially how you’ve continued your networking during the last 12 months.

Provide examples of how you have gained new clients/customers and about any opportunities you have created for yourself and others through networking by connecting people or referring business to others.

The Judges also want to hear how networking has helped you and had an impact on your business growth.


Meet Hollie Whittles, Winner of the 2020 Networking Award and now joins us a Woman Who Judge.

What the Judges said:

A good entry and the judges were very impressed how Hollie originally networked to grow her own business through partnerships and relationships. She has gone on to enhance her experience of networking through various network groups and plugged a gap where other groups have stopped operating using digital marketing rather than traditional face to face, placing her in an ideal position for COVID.

“I am so honoured to receive this award for WomanWho Achieves through Networking. I love to bring people together and provide opportunities through great events where people can learn and get to know each other better. Thank you so much and congratulations to all of the other finalists.  I wore some new purple shoes for the awards, so now they are my lucky shoes!”

“I am honoured to have been shortlisted as a finalist in the networking category. I am delighted to be connected with many inspirational people across the world who have become professional contacts and friends. It is through networking that I created my Amazon best selling book ‘What They Didn’t Teach Me on My PGCE’ – a collection of over 200 narratives written by teachers for teachers. I look forward to making many more connections through the WomenWho network.”
