The winner of the 2015 Forward Ladies Women in Business awards has been announced as Dr Linda Greenwall.
The editor-in-chief of Aesthetic Dentistry Today was announced as the winner on 16 October at a ceremony in London.
The judging panel was made up of leading business personalities and entrepreneurs including Karen Boswell, the managing director of Hitachi Rail Europe and former managing director of East Coast Trains, Ajaz Ahmed, the founder of Freeserve and Debra White, the regional director of Small Businesses at HSBC.
‘The standard of entries for this year’s Women in Business Awards was outstanding, which made selecting the shortlist extremely difficult,’ Karen Boswell, chair of the judging panel, said.
‘This is a testament to the high quality of our female business leaders across the regions who are helping the region’s economy grow.’
Dr Greenwall made the shortlist in the London and south east region in the SME Business category.
One winner per region was chosen by the panel of independent judges, and the outstanding business woman for the region will be chosen from all category winners, with the announcement made at glittering awards ceremony in November.
‘The calibre of entries has been increasing year on year, but this year we have a number of outstanding entries, which have attracted women from all ages, all professions and all walks of life,’ Forward Ladies managing director, Griselda Togobo said.
‘We are also delighted to be hosting regional heats in Newcastle, Manchester, London and Nottingham for the first time, which means we can showcase some of the best talent from across the whole of England.’
