Are you a working mum who has gone the extra mile to achieve your professional and financial goals in the last year or has overcome adversity to support your family?
If so the SuperAchievers Awards run by Pitman Training are keen to hear from you. The Awards include a Working Mum of the Year category.
Judges include Kirsty Smith, founder of blog www.eehbahmum.com, former tv producer and author of ‘How to Have a Baby and Not Lose your Sh*t’, Adam Fidler, a leading PA Training Practitioner who has worked as a Board-level PA for blue-chip organisations and last year’s SuperAchiever PA of the Year, Florence Katono.
Other award categories are:
– Young Achiever of the Year
– PA of the Year
– Business Newcomer of the Year
– Student of the Year (Nominated solely by Pitman Training Centres)
This year the awards also call for employers’, colleagues’ and friends’ input into selecting the nation’s SuperAchievers for 2016, with the role of fourth judge being given to the public.
Nominations are now open and entries can be submitted for free via www.pitmansuperachievers.com until 4th March. Once entries have been submitted, Pitman Training then releases the shortlist for the judges, including the general public, to vote on. Winners will be announced on 29th April.
