I’m a finalist in the Network Cork Business Woman of the Year Awards again this year.

I spoke on my application form about finally feeling like I have a ‘real job’ and being in the finals of a ‘business woman of the year’ awards two years running is a sure indication that I’m doing something right, and we all need a bit of encouragement when we are working long days and nights to go the extra mile.

I join so many amazing business women whom I now call my friends in the finals, both in my category, sponsored by Invesco Ltd, and in the other categories. I am particularly proud to be sharing a spot in the final with my BFF Linda O’Connell aka DigiNomad who has been a great friend and mentor to me since the beginning of my business journey. (Let the rivalry begin!!)

Thanks to the committee for their hard work especially Ingrid Seim who I have known for a few years now and always makes it look seamless to be super organised, her work has made this a reality for so many women to wake up to this morning.

Thanks also to our president Maria Desmond who is always a supporter of all of us members and works tirelessly for us all.

To all of the finalists, best of luck, and I am looking forward to seeing you all dressed up at my first in-person awards night at the end of the month.

Have a look below and you will see that I have already proudly added my finalist badge to the footer of my website, beside last year’s badge- I am delighted to have gained this achievement two years in a row.
