The Finalists of the Parfitt Cresswell Influential Woman category in the NatWest Thames Valley Venus Awards 2017 in association with Marshall Volkswagen were announced at Grosvenor Casino Reading South on Thursday, 6th April 2017.

All Finalists have been invited to join the Sponsors and their fellow Finalists at the Venus Awards Ceremony – dubbed by Channel 4 as “The Working Women’s Oscars” – on Friday, 9th June 2017 at the Madejski Stadium.

Venus Awards was formed in 2009 by Tara Howard expressly to recognise and reward business women who balance their numerous commitments whilst making a considerable contribution to the regional and national economies. By raising awareness of the successful women in our midst in this fashion it further underlines the economic force that women have become.

From early beginnings in Dorset the Awards are now active across nine regions with more planned for future expansion. The Awards are unique in that anyone can nominate a friend, client or family member and with three categories that go to a public vote. Each Award category is sponsored by a business or organisation based within each Awards region.
