“Our awards provide a fantastic opportunity to recognise our member’s achievements, ambition, and professionalism. We had 43 inspiring finalists this year, which is fantastic, they are all excellent businesswomen in their own right. I want to congratulate them all and wish our 5 regional award winners the best of luck at the nationals.

“We are here tonight because of the arduous work of our deputy president Eve Stafford and the committee, but also because of our local sponsors from Johnson and Johnson, Ernst and Young, DGD Shredding, The Cresent shopping Centre, Ingenium. I would like to especially thank the support of our national and major sponsors, LEO Limerick and AIB, our three independent judges and The Clayton Hotel who made this fantastic evening possible,” she continued.”
