The EVAs celebrate the outstanding performance of women in business from every corner of the North West and provide a platform to showcase female business excellence offering an opportunity for women to gain the recognition they deserve.
Blackpool-based Coral Horn, who founded the EVAS nine years ago, said: “The EVAS help to drive more women to succeed. Seeing women win an award inspires other women to believe in themselves and take a chance at entrepreneurship. This is the chance to shine the spotlight on women in business.”
Event sponsor, Heather Waters, Enterprise Manager of NatWest said: “Women in business are a major contributor to the economy in the region and the EVAS give them a fantastic opportunity to showcase their exceptional achievements.”
