Each year the Association of Scottish Businesswomen (ASB) honours and celebrates the achievement and contribution of inspirational women in business and the wider community through their Women of Inspiration Awards.
We are delighted to announce that we honoured twelve such women this year on International Women’s Day.
A special reception was hosted by Scottish Chambers of Commerce in Glasgow.
Each woman was nominated by someone who felt they are deserving of the award; an inspiration to others, role models or leaders in their professions; women who have excelled in their careers or who have encouraged others and impacted lives in the wider community.
ASB president, Lyndsey Greer Phillips said “we were overwhelmed by the number of nominations received this year, celebrating the contributions and achievements of women from all walks of life, making the decision of the nomination committee very difficult.
“Our “Inspirational Women” are business leaders, chief executives, trailblazers, charity champions, entrepreneurs, mentors, motivational speakers and adventurers, women who are truly inspirational and worthy of these awards.
“Each of these women is impacting the businesses and communities in which they work; they are passionate and pioneering business leaders, and selfless and committed charity champions, inspiring and encouraging those around them to overcome barriers and reach their own goals.”
