I was in Lancashire on Friday for the North West Women in Business Awards.  It was a great evening, with lots of glamour and sparkle – and then some fantastic businesses too!   From the descriptions provided by the MCs on the evening, it must have been an extremely difficult job for the judges to decide who were the winners.  I do think that its important to recognise the contribution that women in business make to the economy and the wider society from time to time.

Of course, in a few weeks time in March, it will be International Womens Day and already I know of several exciting events being planned. 

For those in the North West, a big get together is being arranged at the Monastery, Gorton, near Manchester.

In London, Women Unlimited are running their second conference, titled Stepping into Success.
