Forward Ladies, the voice for women in business, has appointed Faith PR to manage the public relations for its annual Women in Business Awards (WIBA).

The organisation, which was established in 1999, operates across the country and has a diverse membership of thousands of business women – from global corporates to SMEs and start-ups.

It has run its Women in Business Awards in the North of England for many years and is this year extending them nationwide with regional finals before a national final in Leeds in November.

We were appointed following a recommendation and will help boost the WIBA profile in North West, Yorkshire, The Midlands, London and the South of through ongoing media relations activity.

Speaking about the appointment, our founder Stefanie Hopkins said: “The Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards, sponsored by HSBC, have become one of the most high profile and respected accolades for women by recognising their enormous contribution to the economy and being an acclaimed forum for training and development. We are delighted to be working with Forward Ladies and helping to spread the word about the work they are doing.”

Griselda Togobo, managing director of Forward Ladies, said: “These awards are hugely important because they showcase exceptionally talented women in business who don’t always get the recognition they deserve for the contribution they make to the country’s economy. We want as many women as possible to enter and Faith PR’s support in raising the profile of Forward Ladies and the WIBA’s will play an important role in this.”
