We were absolutely thrilled to attend the Yorkshire, North East and Scotland Regional Forward Ladies Awards event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Newcastle last Friday (22nd September).
The glittering ceremony was a celebration of the massive contribution that women make to businesses throughout the region and one of the brilliant ladies shortlisted was Gorgeous Cottages very own MD, Christina Brion.
Christina was shortlisted for the SME Emerging Category in recognition of the growth of Gorgeous Cottages over the last 12 months. The business has gone from strength to strength and we now have a whopping 173 luxury Yorkshire Holiday Homes on our books!
Six of our seven full-time members of staff are women so it is fair to say that Gorgeous Cottages is all about promoting women in business!
The event was hugely positive with inspirational stories of ladies starting businesses, growing businesses and giving up their time to mentor and coach others to inspire the next generation of female business leaders.
We didn’t take home the prize on this occasion but it was a great honour to be shortlisted among some of the brilliant talent on show.
Forward Ladies is the UK’s largest business support network for women in business and it was great to part of this fantastic event. Fingers crossed we will be there next year taking home one of the prestigious awards!
