Best of Sussex's businesswomen revealed in shortlist for Venus Awards
High flying businesswomen have been sharing the secrets of their success.
The shortlisted finalists in the Venus Awards met at the Hilton Brighton Metropole hotel in Kings Road.
From thousands of nominations 42 deserving finalists remain who will be whittled down to just 11 winners at the awards ceremony on September 27.
Set up in 2009 in Dorset by Tara Howard and now with Murray Media spearheading the initiative in Brighton, with the Hilton Metropole as the venue and The Argus and Heart as media partners, it is set to be the social event of the year for women in business. The many businesses that already appreciate the upside of supporting women in business, using the Venus Awards as a vehicle, include NatWest, Roedean School and Aston Scott.
Tara Howard, founder of the Venus Awards, said: “We often underestimate what women can achieve in the business world. The awards reaffirm to local business women that they are on the right track and give them a confidence boost that may be the first rung on a ladder to endless possibilities.
“I often have women coming up to me saying ‘this has changed my life’ – to think something as simple as an awards can make such a difference is humbling!
“That is why the plan is to expand the awards.
“The ceremony for the Brighton awards is taking place in September.
We are searching for a national sponsor for the awards so that we can take the awards to local regions across the whole country – and thenwho knows?”
