On International Women’s Day 2018, it was a complete honour to receive a ‘Women of Inspiration Award’ from the Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB)!
Each year the ASB honours and celebrates the achievement and contribution of inspirational women in business and the wider community.
This March, the ASB honoured 12 such women at a reception hosted by Virgin Money in Edinburgh, and I was lucky enough to have been nominated as one of them!
I was in highly esteemed company. ASB President, Wendy Maltman said; “Our ‘Inspirational Women’ are business leaders, chief executives, trailblazers, charity champions, entrepreneurs, mentors, motivational speakers and adventurers, women who are truly inspirational and worthy of these awards.’’
