The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014!

The Finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards Dorset 2014 have been announced!

The finalists for the NatWest Venus Awards in association with Breeze VW Dorset 2014 have been announced! Yesterday afternoon the finalists were announced at the wonderful Norfolk Royal in Bournemouth. With under 6 weeks until the award ceremony, excitement is certainly building!

Tara Howard, founder of the awards which started in Dorset in 2009 explaining her reasons for doing so she said "Being a mother of four and juggling business and family (as so many women have to do) I realised that women are not always on a fair playing field with men when it comes to recognition and awards. That is why I started the Venus Awards. After five years of running the awards, my experience is that the main thing holding most women back is themselves.

A record number of nominations for Venus Awards

The nominations for this year’s Venus Business Women Awards, Dorset 2014 that closed on 8th March broke more records this year.

Now in its fifth successful year and under the umbrella of the Venus Awards, nominations for women across the whole of Dorset hit over 1500. The Venus Awards recognises the efforts and talents of local business women, and are split into fourteen categories covering all aspects of business and personal achievement.

Founded by working mother-of-four and former MD of the Historic Langtry Manor Hotel, Tara Howard, the Venus Awards were created to give due credit to women in business who can sometimes be overlooked and undervalued. “From our small yet successful beginnings here in Dorset my dream of recognising women outside of my home town has become a reality. Venus Awards are now expanding across the country and will become a truly National event where women from all regions can be recognised and rewarded under one umbrella and join the Venus Awards Winners Circle – our family of truly inspirational women.

Breeze Volkswagen awarded fleet deal to supply 23 Volkswagen Golf Estates

Tower Park-based motor dealership Breeze Volkswagen has completed a deal to supply more than 20 vehicles to one of the UK’s fastest growing award winning providers of business telecommunications systems, 4Com PLC.

The fleet of 23 Volkswagen Golf Estates will be used by the 4Com engineers while they visit clients across the UK to perform telecoms installations, upgrades and on-site maintenance.

Following a review into operating costs and its company car policy, 4Com re-evaluated its existing fleet and searched the market for a new vehicle that met all the product criteria they were looking for, including large boot space to accommodate tools, as well as a vehicle that was suitable for engineers to use as their own company car during weekends and evenings with their families.
