ASB President, Lyndsey Greer Phillips, said “I’m absolutely delighted to welcome such high calibre finalists to our Awards Dinner this Year. I know the judges had a very difficult time deciding between all these amazing businesses and inspiring women”

“The Association of Scottish Businesswomen is so incredibly proud to play an integral role in shining a spotlight on the many successful and inspiring women in our business communities by facilitating the awards, and giving the opportunity to praise and reward the most talented women for their achievements in business and in the community, recognising their hard work and dedication.
