Saija’s Awards Experience

What being a finalist did for me

Why should you nominate?

The Awards made a difference for me because… 

“being a finalist raised my professional profile and authority immensely. I’ve gained more opportunities to speak at tech conferences and digital marketing conferences, purely due to being recognized as a woman of influence and talent by FDM and everywoman. I’m highly pleased.”
