Entries Open for Women in Business 2023 Awards
The landmark achievements of Northern Ireland’s businesswomen will be celebrated at the 2023 Women in Business Awards. 

Now in its 11th year, the awards, sponsored by Virgin Media O2 Business, are an annual celebration of the outstanding achievements of female business leaders in Northern Ireland. The gala evening will be hosted at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Belfast on Thursday 2nd March, 2023, where businesswomen from all sectors will come together to recognise, reward and celebrate the very best of local talent at the only ceremony of its kind in Northern Ireland.  

Women in Business Chief Executive, Roseann Kelly, commented: “In the 11 years since launching our Women in Business awards, women have made a hugely significant contribution to the business community here in Northern Ireland. Our 2023 awards ceremony will act as a celebration of this impact across a wide range of business categories, championing the talent and dedication of local women who have achieved great success in the business sphere.

“As a business community, our aim is to: celebrate, encourage, and inspire women to achieve greater success, by highlighting the amazing talent of businesswomen locally and showcasing them as role models to future leaders. Following last year’s record attendance, I would warmly encourage women to nominate themselves or a colleague, before the 12 noon deadline on Monday 23rd January 2023.”

The Awards recognise businesswomen from a diverse range of disciplines through 12 categories. The past 10 years has seen winners from a wide range of sectors including media, tourism, technology and the public sector. 

Jo Bertram, Managing Director of Business at Virgin Media O2 Business, said: “Virgin Media O2 Business is committed to supporting, empowering and championing women - across our company and the business community. That’s why we’re proudly partnering with Women in Business for the fifth consecutive year and look forward to celebrating the most talented and inspiring female leaders across Northern Ireland.”

More than 500 guests attended 2022’s gala awards dinner, where CEO of Staffline Ireland Tina McKenzie won Outstanding Business Woman of the Year Award and long-time event host Pamela Ballentine was awarded the Special Lifetime Achievement for her decorated career across broadcast, print and radio.
