Young Business of the Year Award

I attended the Highland Business Women's Club Awards Ceremony on Friday night at the Drumossie Hotel in Inverness. It was a fantastic night and a beautiful hotel.

I've been a member of the Business Women's Club for a short time and was pleased to be shortlisted and nominated for four categories; Enterprising Business of the Year, Young Business of the Year, Businesswomen of the Year and Member of the Year.

The great news is that I was lucky enough to win Young Business of the Year. I was absolutely thrilled! Another surprise was winning one nights accommodation at the Kingsmills Hotel and Spa in Inverness. A real bonus!

The Club also commissioned me to make all the Awards, here they are:

And here is the Award I won:
The awards incorporated dark and light blues (from their logo), the three triangles and on the right of the Award is the Highlands map in bas relief. I used a technique called kiln-carving for this map, by using fibre paper under the glass and firing, it creates an indentation.
The award I won was sponsored by Moray Firth Radio and Nicky Marr (Breakfast Presenter) was compere for the evening. She was great and very funny.

Very well done again Kathryn. Really love the glass awards you made. Will see you at the Celebration of Life event in Elgin on 27 March. I'll be there with our lovely aloe vera products. Also going to the networking dinner on the Saturday night so hope to see you there.
