She must demonstrate a balance between her business and personal life.Last year’s winner Yvonne Goodwin said: “Winning the award propelled me into the limelight, awe-struck that I was acknowledged for excelling in my chosen career.”
Candidates can be nominated or enter themselves on the WIG website at www.womensifagroup.co.uk. The closing date for nominations is September 30.
