After a full day’s shortlisting at PJ Care’ s offices in Bletchley, undertaken by local business men and women, we have our Women Leaders finalists for 2016.
The structured approach to the judging process ensured that each nomination received the review of all 12 judges.
Organiser Jan Flawn CBE said: “Huge congratulations to everyone that was nominated, the standard across all the categories was again extremely high and made the Judges job very difficult. It was not an easy task as so many of the nominees were deserving of being a finalist, so there were some tough decisions to make.
“All our finalists this year had demonstrated their commitment to their industry sector by submitting supporting evidence that proved how they had gone above and beyond to make a difference for their organisation or their local community.
“We could not be more thrilled with our finalists and look forward the final judging day which takes place on 01 September, less than two months before the gala dinner and awards. The award ceremony is being held at the Hilton DoubleTree, MK Stadium, on 21st October 2016”.
