Oxfordshire Venus Awards Official Website

Now this is how to debut in a region!


Oxfordshire went crazy for the Venus Awards, matching our own enthusiasm and excitement to kick off this key Region.  Thousands of nominations flooded in and attendance proved an all-time high at the Venus Journey Events the last six months.  The working women of Oxfordshire certainly ‘get it’ and have embraced the injection of new marketing ideas, experiences and networking opportunities being a part of the Venus Awards offers.


SOLD OUT…the extremely glamorous and exclusive ‘“social event of the business calendar’” – the Venus Awards Ceremony [dubbed the Working Women’s Oscars,] took place at the splendid Oxford Belfry Hotel on Friday,  November 14, 2014.


The evening was a magnificent success and the atmosphere electric as the 17 Venus Awards winners were announced.  “I can’t remember a region embracing the Venus Awards as warmly as Oxfordshire”, said Tara Howard, Founder of the Venus Awards.  “It was a memorable night and after 16 Awards ceremonies over 5 years I think I can safely say this was absolutely one of the best ever.  Also we raised over £1,500 for the local charity, Headway, which was a Venus Awards fundraising record as well!”

“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.”
