2022 Business Women Excellence Awards - Sussex

The Business Women Excellence Awards 2022 – Sussex Edition have a new and magnificent home this year and will be held at the Grand Hotel Brighton. Celebrating its 5th 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.



The Gala Final

The prestigious black-tie Gala final for the 2022 Business Women Excellence Awards - Sussex Edition will take place at the Grand Hotel in Brighton on the 23rd November 2022.

The awards evening will be a glittering red-carpet event filled with glamour, super food, wonderful entertainment, amazing networking, much elation, and huge accolades with standing ovations for all.

Keep well and keep safe.
