Awards to spotlight dynamic businesswomen have attracted record entries

A record number of entries mean the 2014 Enterprise Vision Awards, supported by Lancashire Life, are on course to be the most successful yet.

Interest in the awards, showcasing women who have made their mark in the world of business, has surpassed all expectations and attracted an unprecedented numbers from across the North West.

Hundreds of businesswomen have entered across the 16 categories, each of which is designed to recognise the most successful women in their sector. With two new categories added to the roster, awards founder Coral Horn, was delighted to see that the quality and quantity is even greater than in previous years.

She said: ‘The introduction of the new awards for Best Online Business as well as the Hospitality Award were both added due to external demand and they have already proven to be very popular.

‘There is a rapid growth in the online businesses market and, therefore, we had to recognise those that are generating revenues with virtual businesses. Winning an EVA can elevate them and generate great publicity and business success.’

Heather Waters, from headline sponsor, NatWest added: ‘The North West is home to some incredible talent and some of the most successful businesses have women at the helm. We are proud to be associated with these awards for the second consecutive year.

‘We know all too well how awards such as these can propel businesses to the next level and we were delighted to nurture many of the finalists from last year with our dedicated Women in Business Specialists.’

The award organisers, Pink Link Ladies, are undertaking a thorough review of all the entries before the finalists in each category are revealed and they will feature in the next issue of Lancashire Life.

The Enterprise Vision Awards will be held at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool on September 26. For more information please visit www.enterprisevisionawards.co.uk.
