Celebrating our contribution to the community at the KWIB Awards.
It was a real podium moment last night at the Kent Women in Business Awards.
As star speaker – and mentor to the stars – Bev James pointed out, we tend to rush past our podium moments. When you’re running a business there’s always the next thing to get on with, the next goal to achieve, so we tend not to take time out to celebrate our successes. So it was fabulous to have an excuse to put on a glitzy frock, some glitzier shoes and celebrate with successful women from across Kent.
Our own Sarah Bartholomew was a finalist for the Contribution to the Community Award for the voluntary and not-for-profit work she does promoting our great town of Tunbridge Wells:
The Tunbridge Wells Project, our not-for-profit website recording amazing behind-the-scenes shots of the town’s iconic buildings for posterity.
Love Tunbridge Wells, our not-for-profit community website promoting what the town has to offer to residents and visitors.
TunbridgeWheels, our third not-for-profit website reviewing access to the town’s facilities for those with mobility restrictions.
Click Networking, a unique not-for-profit business networking event set up by Sarah to help other businesses create the relationships they need to help them succeed.
And then there’s the voluntary work she does for chYps, Kent’s children’s and young person’s hospice care at home charity.
And all that is in addition to running our successful full-service marketing and design agency.
Sarah was joined at the evening by Click Creative’s Anne Greenfield, with copywriter Siobhan Stirling the designated driver. We had a fabulous evening catching up with old friends and meeting new, inspiring Kent business women.
Kent Women In Business Awards pulled all the stops out to create a truly memorable evening. With really inspiring motivational speakers, lots of laughs and glamour galore, it really has become a red-letter day in the Kent business calendar.
