Winning an award (or just being nominated) can be a great boost to your PR as well as your confidence. Yesterday Laura Rigney told us about The Mumpreneur Conference, today she’s going to talk about The Mumpreneurs Awards, also happening on 18th September at The Heart of England Conference Centre.
The closing date for nominations is 5pm next Friday, 30th July.
Over to Laura…
The Mumpreneur Awards will be a fantastic end to the day at the Heart of England Conference Centre, seeing 8 deserving business mums walk away as winners of one of our 8 categories. With something for everyone to enter, and a quick, free and easy nomination form, nominate yourself today to be in with a chance of winning. The categories are as follows:
– Best Start Up Award – sponsored by Mums The Boss
– Best Online Business – sponsored by Create.net
– Best Business Support
– Best Green Business – sponsored by Yell.com
– Best Saleswoman
– Best Interactive Business
– Most Unique Product
As well as the main award categories, all shortlisted nominees will be in with a chance of winning The Inspirational Business Mum Award, which will be presented to, quite simply, the most inspiring mumpreneur in the UK.
Awards are open for nominations until 30th July 2010, after which a shortlist will be announced. Shortlisted nominees are required to attend The Mumpreneur Conference and Awards, or send a representative. The shortlist will be judged by an independent judging panel to include high profle entrepreneurs such as Rachel Elnaugh and Jo Cameron. Winners will be announced at the event.
This fantastic initiative is in its second year, and with tickets at just £20, you’d be mad to miss it. The ticket price includes entrance to the confernece and awards as well as lunch and a complimentary invitation to a charity event in the evening, the official launch for the Mums Mission calendar.
