Introduced by the Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) in 2006, this Award is open to businesses, trading for three years or less at 31st May in this award year.
Winning the 2018 Young Business of the Year Award at the ASB Annual Awards was such an honour! I was absolutely thrilled to have made it to the final and to win was just incredible. The award sits proudly in our reception for all of our clients and visitors to see and is a reminder every time I walk into the practice of how proud I am to be in this Association and how supported I feel by my fellow businesswomen. It has given me such a confidence boost in both myself and in my business and the possibilities that lie ahead. So if you’re wavering on whether to enter the awards or not my advice is to definitely GO FOR IT!
