Recognising Local Business Women
To successfully run a business you often have to take high risks. Therefore there is an extra category called the “Entrepreneur of the Year” which is for women who have taken high risks in business decisions and they have paid off.
The sponsor of this category is the “British Engineerium”, which was called Goldstone Pumping Station and is located in Brighton. British Engineerium is an engineering and steam power museum, which had been used to supply water to the local area for more than a century before it was converted to its present use.
Finalist is Monica Norley, the founder and director of “Visionary Soap Company”. Visionary Soap is the UK’s leading fair trade body care company whose whole range carries the FAIRTRADE Mark. Our company has been entirely dedicated to fair trade since the business’ inception in May 2005. Our products consist of an organic body care range handcrafted in the UK and abroad using ingredients from producers in Palestine, India, Ghana, Nicaragua, The Dominican Republic, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and South Africa.
