Wonderwomen of Business Award-Winners Announced

The WEN Wonderwomen of Business Awards took place on Friday 15th June at Lismore Hotel. Guest Speaker, Lauren Fisher of Simply Zesty flew in from London to join the local businesswomen in their celebrations.  Having started her business from her bedroom, Lauren successfully grew the company and sold it to UTV for £2million.  As part of the deal, she still works for the company and is currently growing the UK branch. 

"Anything is possible ", says Lauren, "you just need to put the time ito building your dreams.  There's always an extra hour in the day that you can use, whether that means getting up an hour earlier or staying at it an hour longer in the evening, if you want success you'll find the time."

County Manager and Chair of Waterford County Enterprise Board, Denis McCarthy, congratulated all the finalists and highlighted the importance of female entrepreneurship.  Anike Tyrell, CEO of Waterford County Enterprise Board, who sponsored the top prize of €2500 worth of social media from Simply Zesty spoke about the impact of social media and about the female contribution to social media.  This was the first time these awards have taken place in Co.
