About Us

The fifth annual Nottingham Post Women in Business Awards 2017, in partnership with Nottingham Trent University, will celebrate the outstanding achievements of female entrepreneurs and professionals. From ‘mumpreneurs’ running a business from home to high-flying career professionals, the Nottingham Post Women in Business Awards highlight the achievements of a wide range of businesswomen from across Nottinghamshire.

Our awards fly the flag for women in business, and create female role models to inspire future generations of women in business.

If you’ve been inspired by a colleague or friend and you feel they deserve to be highlighted, you can nominate them for one of our awards. Categories include Entrepreneur of the Year, Female Executive of the Year, Small Business of the Year, plus many more.

Mike Sassi, editor at the Nottingham Post, said: "This year's Women in Business Awards are expected to be even bigger and better than the previous competitions. This is an awards scheme which has grown incredibly over the last five years and is now a staple on the business calendar. "While all hard-working and inspirational individuals deserve the opportunity to shine, the reality is that many business awards rarely highlight the achievements of women and this competition provides and a platform through which to celebrate their achievements.

You can nominate an individual or business, simply by clicking on “Click To Nominate” and completing the online form.

After the closing date, three finalists will be chosen in each category by an independent judging panel, who will consider every nomination received.

We will then recognise and celebrate the achievements of the finalists at a glittering awards ceremony at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, in Wollaton Street, Nottingham, on Thursday, November 16, 2017. The awards ceremony will commence at 6.45pm with a red carpet drinks reception, followed by a three-course dinner and then the awards presentation.
