I have been shortlisted for the Forward Ladies 2017 Rising Star award!!!

14 Aug 2017

Forward Ladies is one of the leading organisations in the UK solely for the purpose of promoting + celebrating women in business. Their national awards scheme has been running for almost a decade + I am delighted and honoured to announce that I have been shortlisted for the Rising Star award!


I was nominated a few months ago + was invited to submit an application, which would then be reviewed by a panel of judges. Here is where it gets interesting...


Before pressing submit, I had to tick a box agreeing that I would be available to attend the awards ceremony in September should I be shortlisted. I did so, despite knowing that I had already booked a holiday + was scheduled to depart that very day. The reason for this was that I told myself I would never actually be shortlisted, + that I was filling it in for fun.


Fast forward a couple of months later, to my utter surprise, I received an email that I had been shortlisted!


Lesson learned: always believe in yourself + in God's countless + endless blessings.


I am honoured to be shortlisted alongside the following incredible women:

Jennifer Stevens, LEGOLAND Windsor Resort, Senior Learning & Development Manager;

Louise Mackin, Roper Rhodes Ltd, Head of HR;

Maria Ursu, Vodafone Group Services Limited, HR Business Partner;

Farzana Faz, Saracens Solicitors, Consultant Family Solicitor.


Even if I do not win, just being shortlisted for this is a huge honour. 

...and yes, I will be changing my ticket/buying a new one!
