Join us for our eighteenth National Business Awards at Glasgow Grand Central Hotel on Friday 29th September as we celebrate the achievements and successes of businesswomen from throughout Scotland.
This is a night for dressing up, shouting from the rooftops, and applauding the hard work, determination and commitment of all our finalists.
Our evening will begin with a drinks reception in the ballroom lobby. After being seated in the magnificent ballroom we will honour all our finalists and present each with a certificate.
Following a delicious three course dinner with wine we will hear from Great British Bake-Off semi-finalist Flora Shedden in conversation with Nicola Martin of Perth initiative Small City, Big Personality. Flora will discuss her inspirational journey from being the youngest ever Bake-off contestant to publishing her new book Gatherings, and her first steps into business as she opens her bakery in her home town of Dunkeld.
We will then announce the award winners and present each with a beautiful trophy to mark their achievements. Then relax, celebrate together and dance the night away!
