2019 Business Women Excellence Awards - Sussex
The Business Women Excellence Awards 2019 – Sussex Edition have a new and magnificent home this year and will be held at the Grand Hotel Brighton. Celebrating its 4th Year, the Awards were the creation of Faiza Shafeek the Managing Director of Carrot Events, an entrepreneur who has a huge and insatiable passion for business and for promoting women in all forms of business. She knows first-hand what a huge impact of winning a business award can be and believes that the accolade endorsing one’s achievements and of course the exceptional marketing and PR opportunities that winning an award offers is immeasurable.
More and more women are climbing through the ranks of the corporate world and more female entrepreneurs are being recognised. It is an amazing time to be a woman.
We at the Business Women Excellence Awards want to recognise the success and worth of women. We know there are so many formidable businesswomen in Sussex - are you one of them? Or know some of them? If so then don’t just sit there enter or nominate them now and make those amazing women’s day by nominating them. It’s easy and very simple once you have made your entry or third-party nomination, you or they will then get an email to say that you or they have been nominated but not by whom, how super is that.
Entries are now closed!
Entries closed at midday on 4th November 2019.
