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.
Juliet Phillips-James is one of the finalists in the Business woman of the year (Less than 50 Staff) category.
Gomer Williams will find out if they have managed to win the competition and grab an accolade at the elegant event being held in April.
Juliet said: “I was completely overwhelmed and happily surprised when I received the phone call from the award comity.
“It is humbling that my colleagues think me worthy to put forward for this award and I am eternally grateful for all the support they show towards me personally and their unwavering loyalty in the work and commitment they show to the firm.
“Being nominated for this award has allowed me to stop and actually take stock of my achievements and I have been moved by the moving words of support and testimonies that have been put forward by way of support for me in respect of my nomination for this award.”
Creative Oceanic have been delivering award ceremonies over the last eight years in nine different cities including Belfast, London, Glasgow, Cardiff, Manchester Leicester, Birmingham, Dublin and Toronto.
Creative Oceanic has successfully been delivering awards in the hospitality, food, wedding, hair and beauty and independent retail sector.
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.”
