The Association of Scottish Businesswomen is delighted to announce the winners of their 2018 National Business Awards showcasing the talents and recognising the achievements and contribution of women in business throughout Scotland; rewarding enterprise, creativity, extraordinary contribution, skill and vision.
230 guests gathered at the Apex City Quay Hotel on Friday 21st September to support 50 finalists across 12 categories.
Open to business and professional women across Scotland, the ASB National Business Awards showcase and celebrate the achievement of women working across all sectors. Awards are open to both members and non-members and are supported by sponsors Re:markable and Gallaghers Insurance.
ASB President, Wendy Maltman, said “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome such high calibre finalists to ‘Scotland’s coolest little city’ at such an exciting time in its history. Dundee is really buzzing at the moment and it serves as the perfect backdrop to honour these amazing business women.
“The Association of Scottish Businesswomen is so incredibly proud to play an integral role in shining a spotlight on the many successful and inspiring women in our business communities by facilitating the awards and giving the opportunity to praise and reward the most talented women for their achievements in business and in the community, recognising their hard work and dedication.
“The quantity and calibre of entries increases year on year making it extremely difficult for our panel of 13 independent judges to decide on the winners. The awards give us a fantastic opportunity to showcase the very best businesswomen in Scotland.”
Dinner guests also heard from speaker Liz Cameron OBE, Chief Executive and Director of the Scottish Chambers of Commerce, who entertained with tales of her own experience of being nominated for awards, and encouraged everyone to stay true to their values.
ASB members visiting the city for the Awards Dinner had the opportunity to take part in a 59 Minute Design Challenge at the newly opened V&A Dundee, Scotland’s first dedicated design museum. Hosted by the V&A Design for Business team, the fun, fast-paced workshop introduced delegates to Design Thinking as a method to solve everyday business problems.
