After the enormous success of the English, Scottish and Irish Women’s Awards that took place in January, Creative Oceanic is delighted to announce the first ever Welsh Women’s Awards 2019. The number of nominations received over the past months was overwhelming and the full list with finalists has now been compiled.
The black-tie event will be held at the Exchange Hotel in Cardiff, on Wednesday April 3, when meritorious female role models will gather together to celebrate their achievements.
The Welsh Women’s Awards 2019 aim to acknowledge and celebrate the success of women entrepreneurs, business women, professionals, civil servants, women in uniform, charity workers and many more that contribute in making Wales a greater place to live in. The awards embody the continuing strength, grit and determination of women, honouring those who continue to thrive, excelling them at the forefront of their industries.
Sian Smith from Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding in Wiston, Haverfordwest is one of the finalists in the Family Business of the Year category. Millin Brook Luxury Dog Boarding will find out if they have managed to win the competition and grab an accolade at the elegant event being held in April.
“Unbeknown to me, I have been nominated for the Welsh Women’s Awards 2019 and am a finalist in the category “Family Business of the Year”. Thank you from the bottom of my heart to whoever nominated me. I am utterly shocked, overwhelmed and truly humbled!”
A Spokesperson for the Welsh Women’s Awards 2019 said: “These awards aim to celebrate the power and breadth of talent that every woman hides in herself and the hard work of female heroes that often remains unrecognised.
“We are very happy to see the huge engagement of the public who went behind our nomination process to vote for their favourite personalities that have followed their dreams and achieved their goals.
“We hope that these finalists will inspire other women to follow their steps and we can’t wait to welcome meritorious individuals in a memorable ceremony and celebrate the winners with them in an enjoyable event. We wish all the finalists the best of luck.”
During the glamorous black tie event held in Cardiff on the 3rd April 2019, Sian and Dave from Millin Brook were astounded to find that they came second out of a stong category of 12 very successful businesses.
“To get a Highly Commended award in the Family Run Business of the Year is an incredible achievement for us in such a short space of time since we started the business. We are so proud and overwhelmed”.
