I’m Alexis Bowater, the Regional Partner for the Venus Awards in Devon. I am really excited to be taking over as Regional Partner this year for the Devon Venus Awards and looking forward to another fantastic year celebrating women in business in this county. The Venus Awards has been extremely successful here in Devon and I’m working hard to make it bigger and better than ever before this year.
The awards have had three very successful years. That has meant we have a really strong reputation and sponsors are now coming forward wanting to be involved, which is putting them in touch with many more businesses than I could ever have imagined.
We want to hear from you or any other company wishing to recognise, support and engage with women in their local business community.
So please pick up the phone or ping us an email so we can have a chat about how your business can help lead the women in business agenda.
What our Sponsors & Supporters Say
“We started out our journey with you as one of the first companies to come on board with the awards and the reaction we have had has been fantastic. It’s opened up all kinds of opportunities and conversations for us, and having our category’s winner, Sarah Cressall, crowned National Entrepreneur of the Year really was the icing on the cake.”
“The opportunity to be a nominee, or even winner of this prestigious award presents a wonderful platform to raise the profile of your business (the media love successful women in business), and the benefit of a great network for valuable information exchange with like-minded women.”
“Nat West is delighted to be the Title Sponsor of the Venus Awards and we are looking forward to celebrating women who are achieving amazing things in all sorts of business.”
“The Venus Awards generate immense excitement and exposure locally for all involved and are embracing both men and women. We are looking forward to supporting the 2014 awards and beyond.”
“We are involved in many events and this is among the very best.”
“It’s a great vehicle to allow people to get to know each other and chat informally without pressure at the events. It was heart wrenching to choose our Finalists and then Winner…all the women were so good and had such fascinating stories about how they had built their own successful businesses.”

“Venus Awards raised my profile in the business community and brought about some new clients which has led to an increase in profits.”
“Awards are brilliant for PR and marketing, and I know from personal experience here at YouGen, that even reaching the finals of any award creates a buzz, and as for winning, well.”
“We met, networked and became part of a unique business community which not only raised our profile but afforded us all kinds of open doors and business opportunities. It’s been similarly helpful and an absolute pleasure to be an ambassador and watch and encourage others along their journeys.”
“Again, recognition of the hard work. Self satisfaction. Message to self to appreciate what we have achieved which is always hard for a perfectionist.”
“I have benefitted from the PR associated with the awards, and also being able to state that my business is award-winning has helped my positioning, allowing me to attract higher-end clients.”
“The awards acted as a catalyst to promote my business, motivate my team, learn from other businesses, gain more clients and grow in confidence. I would recommend anyone to make sure they are part of these amazing awards.”
