CHAMBER NEWS


Winners from the 2019 awards


Celebrations have begun for Enterprising Women Awards


The search for the region’s most enterprising women has officially begun with a launch event at Horsley Lodge. Guest speakers included Amanda Foster, Managing


Director at Dragonfly’s Team Synergy Centre, and Emma Brealey, Director at Petwood Hotel. Amanda spoke about her inspirational journey into


business. With more than 29 years’ experience within Defence and Industry, she has progressed from military leadership to running her own organisation. She discussed the importance of having female


colleagues around her in her military days and how, being a female minority in the sector, forums such as Enterprising Women play such an important role in supporting women through their careers. Emma spoke following success at last year’s awards,


where she received the headline award of Business Woman of the Year. Recognition came after she was runner-up in the same category in 2018. She said: “It was words of encouragement from Jean


Mountain which made me try again. This is what supporting each other is all about and why this forum is so great.” Co-Chairs of Enterprising Women, Jean Mountain


and Eileen Richards, both hosted the successful launch. Eileen said: “The awards are testament to the effort


the Chamber extends to ensure women in business, from entrepreneurs to apprentices, are recognised for their fantastic achievements. The Enterprising Women network aims to shout for those that can go underappreciated.”
