We are excited to announce that Sarah has been shortlisted for the North West Women in Business Awards 2010.

The North West Women in Business Awards bring together the women behind some of the region’s most innovative and successful companies.  By celebrating those women who are already making their mark, recognising and rewarding them for achieving that success on their own terms it is hoped to encourage more female entrepreneurs, which is important to the North West economy.

There are five award categories in the 2010 North West Women in Business Awards.  Entrants could enter up to two categories. Sarah has been shortlisted in the category of Business Start-up of the Year Award – Sponsored by Barclays Wealth.

Other shortlisted finalists in this category include:
