We were, of course, all extremely pleased when we found out that our CEO, Lesley Pennington, was nominated as one of 10 finalists, and have been waiting with bated breath for the winner to be announced.
About the contest:
"The Beautiful Business Award 2012 is a Swedish-based competition that aims at bringing women entrepreneurs to the forefront as role models. ... The Beautiful Business Award focuses on innovation, sustainability and growth ambitions; on astute business that inspires others. It's beautiful to be a role model."
Other nominees included such amazing entrepreneurial minds as Emy Blixt, the woman behind fabulous shoes Swedish Hasbeens (if you don't know them, then definitely check them out!) and foodie Renée Voltaire. Naturally, Lesley was honoured to have been competing in the same class as these women whom have also inspired her on her own journey as an entrepreneur.
Please join everyone at Bemz in congratulating Emy Blixt, who took the title home. Congratulations Emy!
