24 September 2019
The FL National Awards and Summit – now in its 10th year – is designed to demonstrate enterprise, talent and innovation from across the region’s thriving business community. We’re so, so proud to see Jacqui walk away with the award for Corporate Leader of the Year, especially considering how many incredible businesswomen from across the North were up for this award.
In this year’s Yorkshire, North East and Scotland regional summit, there were an incredible 56 shortlisted applicants, going head to head for just ten awards in categories across all sectors including Emerging Leader, Start Up, Charity/Social Enterprise, Mentor of the Year and more.
Jacqui was shortlisted with some amazing women from diverse sectors, these were: Erika Wilson, Managing Director, Wilson Power Solutions; Emily Blain, HR Director, Tenet Group Ltd; Laura Kirdale, Head of HR, Stickyeyes; Louisa Clarke, Operations Director, Churchill Group; Natasha Babar-Evans, Regional Entrepreneur Director, NatWest; Rachael Withers, CEO, BW Legal Services Limited and Jill King, Director of International Markets, Virgin Pulse.
Now, each category winner will go on to the National Grand Final in November, where the overall winners will be announced!
On the awards, Forward Ladies MD Griselda Togobo explained: “Since launching in 2009, these are the only business awards to recognise those leaders and organisations who have made the greatest impact on the regional and wider UK economy over the last 12 months.”
Jacqui added: “It’s always wonderful to win, but for me, and for CNG, it’s simply amazing just to have the opportunity to meet with, and chat to like-minded businesses and businesswomen, all of whom are leading the way in their sectors and share our passion for being the best!
“A huge thank you to the whole Forward ladies team and judges, but a special mention and congratulations to all the shortlisted women and businesses.”
