Supporting Applications for Women in Business Awards

Fancy putting on your glad rags but not so keen on blowing your own trumpet? FSB are sponsoring the Leicester Mercury Women in Business Awards, and are offering support to FSB members to apply or nominate contacts.

As the leading business organisation, we have an important role to play in supporting the 99.9% of UK businesses who are SMEs and championing diversity in everything we do. Female entrepreneurship has been highlighted as an area where FSB can make a big difference.

We have teamed up with Woman Who… to offer support to women in business across all three counties, and offer support to anyone interested in applying or nominating a contact.

Woman Who…’s Sandra Garlick (pictured) says: “As well as getting great PR for you and your business, entering Awards is an opportunity to sit down and evaluate where you are now, recognise what you have achieved to date and set out where you would like to be in the future. It can feel difficult to blow your own trumpet sometimes but we are here to help you either nominate yourself or a woman who you feel really deserves recognition.”


On behalf of FSB, Woman Who…will be providing face to face workshops, free Facebook Live sessions and attending local FSB Connect events. Just get in touch and let us help you celebrate your achievements or those of a colleague by entering the Leicester Mercury Women in Business Awards. Nominations are open now and close August 25th.
