NOMINATIONS LAUNCH: PANEL DISCUSSION
Thank you to everyone who joined our panel discussion moderated by Celia Duncan (Women's Editor Daily Mail) on 'female entrepreneurs - keeping pace in a changing world'. Celia was joined by Trinny Woodall (Trinny London), Whitney Bromberg Hawkings (Flowerbx), Kanya King CBE (MOBO Organisation) Charlotte Ferguson (Disciple) and Pippa Murray (Pip and Nut).
Since we launched these awards in 2002 we have seen thousands of entrepreneurs share the highs and the lows of their business journeys. The country, indeed the world, now faces its biggest economic challenge in generations. It will be the entrepreneurs who will be sufficiently adroit to identify and act on the opportunities. All eyes will be on the business community in the months ahead and our focus will be on the extraordinary women whose vision, energy and ambition will contribute to Britain’s recovery.
