Despite being its inaugural year in Peterborough, founder Jan Flawn CBE has been blown away by the standard of nominations put forward for an award.
She said: “Peterborough’s first Women Leaders shortlisting has been a complete success.
“I am so thrilled to have received so many nominations from amazing women with amazing stories.
“This is a completely new event, so it’s very exciting to see the enthusiasm from the city.
“I have to say that the finalists for Female Entrepreneur and Emerging Leader were by far the toughest decisions to make. There were so many impressive nominations, but that is what makes this type of event so exciting.”
From Public Services to Professional Services, strong candidates from various companies all over Peterborough have been recognised. Finalists include Carole Hughes from Anna’s Hope, Annette Joyce from Peterborough City Council, Emma Baugh from BBC Worldwide and Samantha Hale from Advance Performance Ltd.

Roythornes Faith Horne, finalist in Creative Industries, told Women Leaders: “I’m very proud to be a finalist for an award that celebrates strong and successful women in the workplace! The fact that these awards even exist shows we’ve come a long way.”
