After receiving many enquiries, organisers of the popular National Business Women's Awards have announced they are now open for entries.

Organised by Events & PR, the awards were first launched in 2018 to raise the profile of enterprising Business Women across the UK.

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 or caring for their parents.

Damian Cummins, awards director said: "After being blown away by the amount of enquiries we have received about this year's awards, we decided to open up the entry process earlier than usual by hosting an online pre-launch on Monday 1st February 2021 from 11am.

"Now, more than ever, we want to recognise the achievements of incredible business women and give them something to look forward to."

The 2021 awards will also see the continuation of our two new award categories - Lockdown Leader and Business Chameleon.

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

"We are excited that the National Business Women's Awards are back to recognise the achievements of these women across a wide range of business categories."

The National Business Women's are now open at . The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place the Copthorne Tara Hotel in Kensington, London on Friday 29th October 2021.
