The Bedfordshire Business Women Awards, now in their 11th year, celebrate the talent, passion, drive and success of the women behind some of the countyâ€™s most innovative and successful businesses.
BBW president Pauline Stewart, who was named Bedfordshire Businesswoman of the Year two years ago, said: â€œThere are some very talented and hard-working businesswomen in Bedfordshire, all making an important contribution to the local economy.
“Their achievements will hopefully inspire many other women to pursue their business dreams and I would encourage as many people as possible to send in nominations for this yearâ€™s awards.â€
All nominations received will be considered by a panel of judges representing a wide range of businesses across Bedfordshire. The winners will be announced at a special awards lunch on November 19.
