The NatWest Everywoman Awards were launched in 2003 to recognise
and celebrate the achievements of female entrepreneurs. Run by the company,
Everywoman, the club itself brings together its members and allows them to
build strong networks, share experiences and compile their thoughts. They raise
awareness of those women who have overcome significant obstacles to achieve
business success. The winners of these awards set an example to other women and demonstrate what can be achieved with vision and determination.
The winners were selected by a judging panel from 15 of some
of the UK’s best known and successful business figures, including Chrissie
Rucker MBE, The White Company; Cath Kidston MBE; Amanda Wakeley OBE and more.
Ingrid Devin, Director, Dell Women’s Entrepreneur Network
said “We believe technology is key to success when it comes starting and
building a business. It has the power to remove many of the social and physical
barriers women need to overcome to start their businesses and connect with the
resources they need through every phase of growth. At Dell, we are focused on
identifying these barriers and supporting women entrepreneurs through access to
capital, technology, networks and knowledge – areas where we feel we can make
the biggest difference.”
Julie Baker, Head of Enterprise at NatWest, also commented:
“We are proud to recognise these women, who are not just successful in their
own businesses, but are also great role models. The importance of women in
business cannot be underestimated, so we can hope these role models will
inspire other women to take their first steps in business.”
Fiona joined a number other women in winning the coveted awards
on offer and is extremely proud of both herself and the company for helping her
to achieve this award. We would also like to extend a well done and
congratulations to those women who won, all of whom are truly
inspirational and deserving.
