Poonam Kaur has been presented with the prestigious award by Forward Ladies for Mentor of the Year for the Yorkshire, North East and Scotland region.
Poonam received the Mentor of the Year award on Friday 20th September at a celebration event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Newcastle in the company of inspirational and influential business leaders.
Forward Ladies are currently celebrating their tenth anniversary and continues to acknowledge and promote the fact that women are an integral and invaluable part of every business by honouring the most respected businesswomen, across a wide range of business categories.
The Forward Ladies Mentor of the Year Award identifies women who have a track record in mentoring and developing future leaders of industry.
Forward Ladies CEO Griselda Togobo said “Each year we are inspired by the number of high-calibre entries, and this year has highlighted the exceptionally talented businesswomen we have in the UK. These entrants are the future entrepreneurs of our country and play a critical role in our economy.”
Poonam commented “I am proud and grateful to have been presented with the Mentor of the Year award. To have been recognised alongside such influential business women in my category was an honour. I hope these awards continue to motivate business women across the country to keep achieving and striving for great things.”
Poonam will later take part in a judging day in November alongside her fellow category winners, before a distinguished panel of business leaders, where they will join finalists from regional events. The overall national winner will be announced at the Grand Final to be held in Leeds on the 29th November.
