Recognising Local Business Women
The NatWest Venus Awards were set up in 2009 to recognise business women from across the country. The awards allow people to nominate a working woman of their choice. There are a variety of categories that you can choose from, some which have sponsors. However, there are still a few categories that are on the lookout for Sponsors, so if you are interested please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
It’s a very exciting time for the business women of Bristol, who won their Awards back in March 2014 at the magnificent Marriott Royal. They will be attending the National Finals with the other winners from each region on the 23rd of January 2015. Hosting will be the exquisite Audleys Wood – Hand Picked hotel in Basingstoke. It’s definitely not a night to miss. All the lucky finalists from each region will come together to compete in several different categories.
You never know you could be the one to win!

Tara has a clear passion for her work “We’ve invested a lot into the technology behind the Venus Awards, to make it as quick and simple as possible, for both those nominating and those finding themselves nominated,” explained Tara.
Venus Awards has been recognising and rewarding women since 2009 with the event expanding into 8 regions across the country. Talking about the impressive growth of the Awards, Tara, herself a business woman and mother of four, commented; “It really is inspiring to see how much support and enthusiasm there is for the awards and what a difference they can make. I’ve even had past winners confess to me that the awards have changed their lives – that’s really powerful, and drives me forward to expand, and launch the awards in new regions to recognise more deserving women.”
