The Women’s Business Awards are the highlight of our year! It is the time when we recognise and celebrate the best businesses in the country. Award winners enjoy being recognised in the business community and not only receive an award that they can display in their workplace but also receive a badge to display on their website and print material so that the world can see that they are an award-winning business. Nominations close on 1st November.

Winners are not selected through reviews alone but by each sponsor thorough investigation. Nomination Rules:

 * Only members of the Women’s Business Club may enter.
* Members do not qualify if their membership fees have lapsed at the time of the awards.
* Members may not nominate themselves no matter how awesome they think they are.
* Nominees will forfeit if they aren’t able to attend the awards ceremony.
