venus Awards Southampton Launch

Tuesday, the 14th of January-or in other words it was the start of the NatWest Venus Awards Southampton! Because of the amazing success in the preceding years, we want to go on recognising all the amazing business women in the SO postcode. And now it’s your turn: GET NOMINATING. We celebrated this opening with the most influential, and of course the most beautiful  people in Southampton and the surrounding areas. The amazing event took place in the Grand Cafe, the perfect location for a night we won’t forget. Katie Francesca, a very talented singer, completed this night with her wonderful voice. In this pleasant atmosphere, sponsors and guests felt very comfortable to nominate the women who are deserving to win an award. The Mayor of Southampton Ivan White and his wife Mary White were also in attendance, showing their support for the business women of Southampton. A night like this requires a very competent presenter and this we definitely had!! Tara Howard opened by talking about Venus Awards and how it all began. Started in one region it’s now spread into nine! Mayoress Mary White and some of the sponsors talked about the Awards in general and about their intentions to support. This year there are three new categories to nominate business women: Customer Service Award, International Business and Young Entrepreneur. We really enjoyed this night and we hope you did it as well. Thanks for all, who made this event so unforgettable!!
