2018 Awards

Meet the sponsors and winners of the 2018 Successful Women Awards

Applications are now closed for 2018, but we will be launching our next awards on March 8th 2019.

 Gill and Successful Women Award Winner - Natasha Ray

Gill and Successful Women Award Winner - Natasha Ray

The Successful Women Awards were created by Gill Donnell MBE, an experienced leader, motivational speaker and successful entrepreneur, who has spent much of her working life promoting the role of women in the workplace and supporting individuals to achieve their full potential.

Gill understands at first-hand the positive impact on women of recognising & celebrating their successes, including winning awards!

The awards celebrate and showcase the work and businesses of Successful Women across Dorset, Devon & Somerset. The business world is full of hugely talented and successful women who not only run businesses or work in demanding roles, but often also juggle caring responsibilities at the same time.

We have the support of amazing sponsors and marketing partners, all committed to recognising the wonderful female  talent across the South West.

Here's a video taken at our hugely successful Conference on International Women's Day 2018, when we launched the awards.

The 2019 #swibawards will again be launched on International Women's Day at next year's conference on Friday March 8th 2019.
