The Venus Awards has really raised the profile of my business. Within 24 hours of winning the award I was inundated with messages of support and congratulations, had a news item on the local radio station, as well as featuring on their website. I was also contacted by our local community magazine who wish to dedicate space to celebrate our success.
Many of the congratulatory messages on social media in particular, also included endorsements from those who had used our services. Less than a week on from picking up the award, exposure for the business has been phenomenal.
Personally, I feel the award is huge recognition for all the hard work that has gone into setting up the business. I think what I am most proud of is being nominated by a local competitor!
The fact that the awards are open and anyone can nominate makes the awards really special. Being surrounded by so many influential and inspirational women in business is an amazing experience and I have come back to work with even more enthusiasm & determination!
I would 100% recommend to other women to become involved in the Venus Awards. It has been an amazing experience. I have met so many incredible women making a difference in business, in their communities and around the world. Hearing their personal stories is something you can learn from and draw inspiration from and I cannot emphasise enough how lucky I feel to have encountered them all through the Venus Awards.
