THE hunt will soon be on for Staffordshire mums in business who excel in their role and deserved to be honoured for their achievements.
Organisers of the annual Bizmums Conference and Awards Ceremony have revealed furniture giant Alan Ward as the main sponsor for the 2014 event, which is due to take place on October 4 at Yarnfield Park Conference Centre in Stone.
The awards honour mums in all areas of business with categories including Direct Selling Mum, Health and Beauty Mum, Creative Mum, Charity Mum and many more.
Jenny Osborne, of Henshalls Insurance, scooped the Exceptional Service award in 2013 and was then revealed as the overall winner.
She said: "I was thrilled and very much overwhelmed to win one award but to go on to win the overall award too was amazing. I work hard and have had to face some health issues along the way but for me my job is about satisfying the clients and ensuring they get the best service and advice.
"It was wonderful to be recognised for that and I wish every one every success in entering this year's awards."
Nominations for the awards will open on June 1. Bizmums founder Michelle Childs said: "The Bizmums conference features speakers to help mums in business learn more about what they can do to improve and grow as well as how to balance work and a busy home life.
"Bizmums was born because I wanted to provide mums in business with a group where they could network and learn while having the kids in tow," added Michelle. "We meet in child-friendly places so that can happen but mums without children are more than welcome.
There are still sponsorship opportunities available and anyone wishing to support the event can contact Michelle on firstname.lastname@example.org
