Winner-a-Day! Alison McClure – Winner of the Shirlaws Professional of the Year Award!
The Hampshire Venus Awards in association with Peter Cooper Motor Group and Wightlink announced the winners for 2017 at The Spark, Southampton Solent University on Saturday, 11th November 2017. Michael Kurn, TV Presenter and Broadcaster, was the evening’s compere and the hosts for the evening’s celebrations were Tara Howard, founder of Venus Awards and Mims Davies, local Eastleigh MP.
Ben Kench on behalf of Shirlaws’ Pip Reader, awarded Alison on the night. Alison said on the night,
“Thank you all very much! When I graduated from university, there were 50% of women who graduated with me, doing law. 30 years later I’m very sad to say the only average is 18% of women in senior board member roles in the legal sector. I hope that Venus Awards, and awards like this will in some way promote women in senior board roles. Thank you very much, and particularly thank you to all the people at Blake Morgan who supported me throughout my career. Thank you.”
