Venus Was Her Name

Nominations for the NatWest Venus Awards 2014 are now open

The NatWest Venus Awards recognise women in the Business Community and are now open for nominations for Sussex until 16th May 2014.

Venus Awards were set up in 2009 by Tara Howard, to recognise the hard work, effort and skill that it can take women to successfully juggle business with other commitments.  Up to fourteen categories will be judged by sponsors, with three categories being voted for by the general public.

Finalists are invited to attend the prestigious Awards Ceremony at the Grand Hotel, Brighton in September 2014, where the winners are announced during an exciting and fun event, which is fast becoming the business social event of the year.

The Venus Awards have gone from strength to strength in the past five years, launching in various regions across the country.

Talking about the phenomenal growth of the Awards, Tara Howard the Founder, herself a business woman and mother of four, commented; “It really is inspiring to see how much support and enthusiasm there is for the awards and what a difference they can make.  I’ve even had past winners confess to me that the awards have changed their lives – that’s really powerful, and drives me forward to expand and launch the awards in new regions to recognise more deserving women.”
