Joanne Bass, Director of XL Displays wins the Female Entrepreneur Award at the inaugural Peterborough Woman Leaders Awards.
The Women Leaders Awards is all about celebrating the hard work and achievement of women who have contributed to the growth of their industry sector, and the ongoing success of the city.
The Woman Leaders Award ceremony took place in on the 10th November at the Peterborough Arena.
Celebrating woman in business, the glamorous evening saw guest speakers such as Penny Power and Margret Willis give inspirational talks about their journey to success through some of the difficulties that woman experience in the world of business.
Despite it being the first year in Peterborough, founder Jan Flawn CBE was blown away by the standard of finalists.
Joanne Bass comments on what it means to her to win the Woman Leaders Female Entrepreneur Award:
“It is a privilege and an honour to be chosen for the Woman Leaders Female Entrepreneur Award. It is a humbling experience as every woman deserves recognition for what they have achieved.
I have always been an advocate for woman striving to be successful in business and in life, for woman being able to have a fulfilling career or run a business alongside a happy home life.
Listening to all the amazingly inspirational stories from the evening, I think it goes to show that with tenacity, determination, support and a focus to succeed – anything is possible.
Woman in business and leadership is something we live and breathe every day at XL Displays. 70% of our staff are Woman and 85% of our Managers and Leadership team are woman.
Without my team and the amazing work they do every day I wouldn’t be where I am today. I’d like to thank all of the team for their continued hard work and dedication to XL Displays.”
