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.

However, there are still a few categories that are on the lookout for Sponsors,  so if you are interested please contact:

It’s time to get clicking!  The 20th of May saw the official opening of nominations at the magnificent Malmaison, which used to be a prison.  The NatWest Venus Awards in association with BMW North saw the Sponsors and business women were brought together for the launch in the county of Oxfordshire.

If you have a favourite working woman that you think needs to be recognised,  then go ahead and nominate.  It’s quick and simple and will only take 5 minutes of your time.  Earn yourself some brownie points and nominate a client.

Tara has a clear passion for the Venus Awards “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.”
