The search is on for the country's most talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs with the launch of the 2021 National Business Women's Awards.

Organisers Events & PR are delighted to continue the Lockdown Leader and Business Chameleon categories as part of this year's honours, following their success in 2020.

These two categories recognise and celebrate those who have thrived and blossomed during the Coronavirus crisis. From providing job security and strong, decisive leadership to a team, to completely adapting a business service or product to meet a new need.

Incredible, high-achieving women in business and industry have until Thursday 5th August to enter the awards, which recognise the successful women who not only run outstanding businesses but in many cases also juggle the needs of their families as they work.

Each candidate can enter up to three categories, at a cost of £65 + VAT per entry. The Lifetime Achievement and Business Hero categories are free to enter.

Damian Cummins, awards director said: "It is easy to run out of superlatives to describe the women honoured in these awards. We are proud and delighted to be back to celebrate yet another plethora of amazing achievers, who work tirelessly to ensure their businesses thrive - often while raising a family too.

"Over the last 12 months, many female business owners and managers have had to work even harder to keep their businesses going through a pandemic whilst facing personal challenges such as home schooling, family isolation or caring for their parents. The business world is full of these talented individuals and we look forward to seeing entries showcasing their impressive successes, despite the challenges of the pandemic."

The National Business Women's Awards ceremony will take place at Copthorne, Tara Hotel in Kensington on Friday 29th October 2021.
