Business, Community, What's On

The achievements of Northern Ireland’s top businesswomen will be celebrated at the 2019 Women in Business Awards, an initiative now in its ninth year.

The Awards are an annual celebration of the outstanding achievements of female business leaders. 



The gala evening will be hosted at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Belfast on Thursday 7 November, where businesswomen from all sectors will come together to acknowledge, reward and celebrate local success.

Women in Business chief executive, Roseann Kelly, commented, “The business world is full of talented and dedicated women who not only lead successful businesses but, in many cases, also juggle the needs of their families.

“Our business awards are designed to recognise the achievement of these women across a wide range of business categories.

“As a business community, our aim is to celebrate, encourage and inspire women to achieve greater success, by highlighting the amazing talent of businesswomen locally and showcasing them as role models to future leaders.



She added, “I would warmly encourage women to nominate themselves or a colleague, before the deadline of Monday 30 September 2019.”

The Awards recognise businesswomen from a diverse range of disciplines through 11 categories. The past eight years has seen winners from a wide range of sectors including tourism, media, technology and the public sector.

This year’s awards boast a number of high profile sponsors including title sponsor Virgin Media Business, media partner the Irish News along with Citi Bank, Kaizen Print, Danske Bank, RSA Insurance and Ulster Bank.

Seamus McCorry, Regional Director for Virgin Media Business in Northern Ireland, said, “At Virgin Media Business we believe in job opportunities for everyone regardless of gender.



“We’re thrilled to be working with Women in Business for the second year in a row to support and empower women across Northern Ireland as we work to create a diverse, balanced and vibrant business community. This initiative is just one of the many important investments we’re making in Northern Ireland.”

More than 500 guests attended last year’s gala awards dinner, which brings together business people from a broad range of sectors and industries to recognise the best in home-grown talent and celebrate the success of female entrepreneurs, business leaders and senior managers at the only ceremony of its kind in Northern Ireland.

All finalists will join the Women in Business Award Finalist Alumnae of nearly 300 women which offers the opportunity to network and engage with like-minded business women, enhancing both personal and professional development.

Entries are now open. For a full list of award categories, entry forms and to book a ticket to the event visit www.
