Barbara Cox ‘Woman of the Year’ 2021 Award shortlist
Lynda Ennis, Founder at Ennis and Co. LTD and part of the judging panel was inspired by the quality of the nominations and then our final shortlist.
“What really stood out for me from a shortlist perspective is the balance of the entries – I found they very well thought through, in terms of the leadership piece, and it went beyond their “business as usual status”. It went beyond the “everyday” aspects of their jobs. They accurately validated what they had done with really strong, well thought through examples, including commercials –and with this it made the entries more believable and inspirational.”
