Leanne Bonner-Cooke, our MD, scooped the prize for International Business of the year from the Forward Ladies, at the glittering awards ceremony hosted by ITV News presenter Charlene White on 9th October.
The Midlands heat took place at The Nottingham Belfry hotel, where 45 entrepreneurial female business leaders from across the region competed in 11 categories to be crowned the winner.
Leanne will now complete in the National final taking place on the 20th November in Leeds at the Queens Hotel. But first she will be put through her paces at a live session with the judges on November 4th, held at headline sponsor of the awards HSBC’s offices in Leeds.
Leanne said “Winning this award brings a great sense of achievement to both myself and the Evolve team. Last year saw us take the business to the international market and this award is the platform to spring us into other international markets with our products and services. The next 12 months will be an exciting and challenging time ahead for Evolve and the team as we strive to achieve greater success launching our e-Bate product into the international market.”
Griselda Togobo, MD at Forward Ladies said “This year we received a number of outstanding entries from right across the Midlands and the awards really did showcase some of the best talent and businesses from across the region.”
From all of the Evolve team we’d like to congratulate Leanne on her award. Without Leanne leading the way we would not be where we are today.
