Semi-Finalists Announced for Venus Awards Dorset 2018

On the 24th July Mercedes-Benz of Poole, Venus Awards Dorset Associate Sponsor, hosted over 120 nominees, guests and sponsors at their Poole Showroom, for the announcement of the names of those progressing to the Semi-Finalist stage of the 2018 Venus Awards Dorset.

The sixty successful Semi-Finalists will now go through to the next stage of the judging process, and the finalists will be announced on 26th September 2018.  

Venus Awards Dorset is now in its 9th year, and the response remains consistently strong with over 515 nominations and 350 applications.

The Dorset participants are competing in 14 categories including Inspirational Woman of the Year, Small Business of the Year, Employer of the Year and Business Mother of the Year.

This year’s Charity Sponsor is Boo.  The aim of “Boo” is to help children of Africa disadvantaged through economic poverty by providing help in a variety of ways, including food, shelter, health, education, life-skills and emotional support.

The Venus Awards – dubbed by Channel 4 as “The Working Women’s Oscars” – celebrate the vital contribution that women in business make to the local, regional and national economy, and are unique in that anyone can nominate a friend, client or family member.  To provide extra help for our nominees and other working women, we have recently launched The Venus Business School. This exciting new initiative offers invaluable support for female entrepreneurs and working women in the areas of confidence, communication, leadership and stress/time management.

The Venus Awards Dorset 2018, in association with Mercedes-Benz of Poole, will culminate in a glamorous Ceremony and Gala Dinner on the 23rd November 2018.
