Recognising Local Business Women
For Women it is often not easy to combine both the business career and the family life, especially when they have children. That`s why it is very distinguished when mothers are successful in their career or they`re even running an own business. Therefore, there is an internal category at the Venus Awards called “Business Mother of the Year”
Sponsor for this category is Radio Heart, a radio located near Brighton, but also on 32 another stations distributed all over the UK. It exists since 1994 and nowadays it reaches about 7.4 million people.
One of the finalists is Sarah Watkins. She is a social entrepreneur with nearly 16 years of experience who hopes to change the world a little bit. In 2011, she founded “Parentskool Limited” . Parents School offers practical exercises in handling a newborn, nappy changing, washing, swaddling, feeding and burping, impartial shopping guides to help you decide what you really need and what you don’t, the safe way to put your baby to sleep, sleeping routines, crying solutions, a bunch of props (nappies, bottles, teats, dummies, expressing equipment and much more) so you can see and feel the difference between different brands, and a handout giving you all the info you need to have a baby in Brighton & Hove with classes, groups, shops and much more.
