The Bedfordshire Business Women Awards, now in their 11th year, celebrate the talent, passion, drive and success of the women behind some of the county’s most innovative and successful businesses.

BBW president Pauline Stewart, who was named Bedfordshire Businesswoman of the Year two years ago, said: “There 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 year’s awards.”

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.

The closing date for entries is Friday 31 October 2008. Application forms can be downloaded from the Bedfordshire Business Women website at
