​We are delighted to share that our Managing Director, Barbara McKiernan, won the award for Outstanding Management and Leadership at last night’s Women in Business Awards.

The prestigious annual awards ceremony took place at the Crowne Plaza and proved to be yet another success evening celebrating women in business in Northern Ireland. It was great to hear that 1 in 5 start-ups in Northern Ireland are now run by women, showcasing the extraordinary depth and talent we have here on our island. Last night was a time to reflect on all of the successes of women over the last 24 months and what we can do next to fight equality in the workplace for all.

Congratulations to all of the winners of the Women in Business Awards 2022!
