Cambridge Enterprising Women SET the example


12-11-2008

Three Cambridge women have been nominated as finalists in the regional “Enterprising Women” Awards.




With a membership of over 4000 businesswomen, all eligible for nomination, making it through to the finalists’ stage means these women are truly remarkable.

Anne Miller of the Creativity Partnership, Madhuri Warren of VSS Diagnostics and  Diane Turner of Anthias Consulting are the three finalists competing for the East of England SET/Innovator Award.

The winners, together with the overall Enterprising Woman of the year, will be announced on 21st November after the annual Enterprising Women conference being held at Abington Hall sponsored by Business Link East and Venture Navigator, and supported by EEDA.

The conference is a wonderful opportunity for every businesswoman from across the region to hear inspirational speakers, take part in informative workshops and network with some of the most successful female entrepreneurs from the UK.  In the current economic climate the conference is also a ‘motivational must’ for every woman who wants to re-energize her business and uncover those crucial new business opportunities.

The panel of judges who include Bev Hurley CEO YTKO, Jenny Chapman Business Editor Cambridge Evening News, Paul Henry of Business Link East, and John Riley CEO Menta have had a really hard task choosing the finalists because the calibre of entrants was exceptionally high.

The voting isnt only open to Enterprising Women either members of the public can visit the Enterprising Women website http://www.enterprising-women.org/ to read all about their local business stars and choose the ones they feel deserve the awards.  All the conference details can be found there too and all are welcome.
