Awards can give you and your business a massive boost. Regardless of whether there is prize money (though it’s always nice!) winning an award is a great PR and morale boost for everyone involved. While entering can be time-consuming, it also helps you to take stock and appreciate what you’ve achieved.
Here is our, newly-updated, listing of all the Women’s Business Awards we’ve been able to find. Some of the best known have disappeared in the last couple of years… But I’m sure we’ve missed a few too! Please add any we’ve missed to the comments box at the end of the listings.
