This year marks another exciting milestone for both Evolve and our CEO, Leanne Bonner-Cooke, as her business acumen and expertise in helping businesses to bring about sustainable, positive change have earned Leanne and Evolve nominations for not one, not two but three, prestigious awards.
We are passionate about providing clients with nothing less than the highest quality of professional services at the right price. We take a collaborative approach to helping businesses effectively use their people, process and technology assets to realise greater financial potential for their organisation.
Now in their sixth year, the Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards, comprise outstanding business women from across the UK, from start-ups to multi-million-pound companies. We have been short listed in the Midlands heat for both “International Business of the Year” and “SME Business of the Year”, in a year described by the organisers as one with the highest standards of entries to date.
The awards take place at The Belfry in Nottingham on Friday 9th October, where national and regional winners will be announced and offered the support of two of the most influential businesses in the world; HSBC (Headline sponsor) and Microsoft (Technology partner).
And, if it wasn’t enough for the business to take the nation by storm, Leanne herself has scooped a semi-finalist position for “Business Woman of the Year” in the upcoming Niche Business Awards.
The Niche Business Awards are designed to celebrate the talent and successes of Leicester. Nominated peers, customers and colleagues are shortlisted by a panel of impartial business peers, winners will be announced at a glamorous Bond themed event on Friday 25th September at The Athena in Leicester.
Leanne is recognised as an energetic and enthusiastic leader and strategic thinker; establishing a successful business helping others get the most out of their people, process and technology assets, which has led to her gaining a reputation for results throughout the UK and abroad.
Leanne added; “Having been nominated for three great awards, it makes me feel really proud about what I have achieved in the past 8 years. My inspiration comes from those customers, I and Evolve help and my family who support me all the way! I am passionate about making a positive difference to our customers and being nominated for these awards makes all the effort and sleepless nights very worthwhile.”
Known for her ability to help companies create and deliver aligned IT and Business Strategies to ensure they can effectively achieve their business goals, Leanne has experience in establishing effective delivery teams to identify, define and deliver business improvements and solutions across a wide range of sectors in both SMEs and major corporate.
Her insight and experience have led to Leanne appearing as a guest speaker at the Inspirational Women in Business series earlier this year, helping to inspire, motivate and share her passion with business women across the Midlands.
