The launch for the 2017 Women In Business Awards, organised by The Business Magazine, took place on Friday March 31 in the picturesque setting of The Oakley Court Hotel, Windsor – and the campaign has been personally endorsed by prime minister Theresa May.
Over the course of the morning, around 100 female (and male) representatives came together to network, learn about the awards (and the three new categories), and listen to inspirational speakers from the world of business.
The event was sponsored by Barclays, Blake Morgan, KPMG and Windsor Vehicle Leasing, and supported by The Institute of Directors.
Tamsin Napier-Munn, campaigns manager for The Business Magazine, set the scene for the fourth annual WIB Awards by highlighting the importance of women on the global scene and their role in changing the political and economic landscape. This was particularly pertinent coming so soon after the triggering of Article 50 by the UK government.
