Congratulations to all #WIBA2015 winners!

Last Friday saw more than two hundred leading Liverpool ladies (and gents) flock to Hilton Liverpool to celebrate the Women in Business Awards 2015.

The event, now in it’s fourth year, the awards saw long-standing chief executive of Health@Work, Frances Molloy, crowned Female Leader of the Year after an outstanding year for the organisation. Frances was also congratulated for her ongoing campaign to change the law on tyres, after she lost her son Michael tragically and needlessly in 2012.

Frank McKenna, chief executive of Downtown, said Frances’ commitment to the success of Health@Work alongside her personal campaign made her a more than worthy winner:

“Leading the way in changing behaviour is always a challenge but that is what Frances and the Health@Work team do every day. They work with businesses to change attitudes and they are incredibly successful.

“To continue to deliver success for almost 15 years is a testament to Frances’ leadership and she is a more than worthy winner of this award.”

Other winners included Cllr Rosie Jolly, chief executive at SEN, who took home the gong for Business Enabler of the Year; and Kim Kaewkraikhot from Chaophraya who was overjoyed as she picked up Entrepreneur of the Year.

The annual event is run in association with the Women’s Organisation, the largest developer and deliverer of training and support for women in the UK based in Liverpool’s Baltic triangle. Chrief executive, Maggie O’Carroll said:

“Liverpool is a real hotbed of female business talent and entrepreneurship.

“Every year we hear new stories of leadership, success and achievement. Merseyside is a very good example of a business community where the gender balance is being addressed by talented women breaking through and establishing themselves at the forefront of the regional economy, be that in the corporate boardroom or by establishing their own successful businesses.”
