The Wagada team was thrilled this week to discover that we had reached the final for two categories in the Best Business Women Awards 2015. It was a really amazing feeling to know that our hard work and dedication had paid off, and we had been chosen as finalists for the Business Services and the Technology & Science categories. It’s hard to believe how much we have grown, learnt and achieved since Wagada was started in 2011 and it’s a great honour for us to be recognised by such a prestigious awards event. So we thought we would share a bit more information about the awards with you and explain why we have been nominated.
It’s fantastic to see how many women are succeeding in the world of business, and the Best Business Women Awards were set up by Debbie Gilbert to recognise these intrepid female entrepreneurs who were often balancing successful businesses with meeting the needs of their children and families too. Debbie is a multi-award winning Mumpreneur herself and wanted to create awards that recognised women who are making a difference both in their own businesses and within their local community. The awards are judged by a range of inspirational business owners with a wealth of experience.
It’s a great honour to have reached the finals for not just one but two awards!
The Business Services Award is for the best female in the professional services field and goes to businesses who provide services to other companies, and who can demonstrate that they have made an outstanding contribution to the business needs of their clients. At Wagada we always put our clients first and are passionate about providing a first class service. Whether you are a larger business or a sole trader we will always work pro-actively to help your business and give you the support that you need.
The second category is the Technology and Science Award. This award is for the best female working within the technology or science field. We are really proud of being nominated for this award as we think it is vitally important for more women to enter this field and we’d love to see more female role models for young women looking to enter these industries. It’s great to show the world that women can succeed in the technology industry!
We are really looking forward to attending the awards ceremony on the 15th October. We would like to say a big congratulations to all the nominees in the Best Business Women Awards and wish everyone good luck as we know how hard you have all worked to get here. We’ll be keeping our fingers crossed for a win on the 15th and we’ll be back to update you then with some news and pictures from the ceremony!
