Alison Mitchell, executive director of Sensor City has been shortlisted in the Technology Entrepreneur Of The Year category. Alison will find out if she will be named winner at the awards ceremony.

The elegant, black-tie awards ceremony will take place at the International Suite of Manchester’s Mercure Piccadilly Hotel on Monday the 19th of March and is expected to be attended by hundreds of influential British women.

The awards will acknowledge and celebrate the achievements of British Women including female entrepreneurs, civil servants, charity founders amongst other professionals, whose hard work, talent and commitment is often under-represented.

They also intend to provide an opportunity and platform for women to inspire others, particularly younger women, as each nominee will have their own story to tell and advice to give.

The awards are organised by Creative Oceanic, an events and marketing agency who are responsible for some of England’s most successful and well known events such as The English Wedding Awards and The English Hair & Beauty Awards amongst others.

Irfan Younis, CEO of Creative Oceanic said: “For far too long women have never been appreciated for everything that they manage and achieve despite the odds and with this year marking 100 years since the vote for women, this is the perfect time to launch this awards ceremony and celebrate their outstanding achievements.”

The English Women’s Awards – North 2018 have been inspired by the success of Scotland’s inaugural Women’s Awards 2017 which also showcased some of the most hard working, talented and committed women in Scotland.

The evening will also help to raise funds for our official charity partner Smart Works, an organisation which empowers women in need by providing them with the attire, advice, training and confidence that they need to unlock their potential and success in the workplace.
