Hundreds of nominations were received for this year’s MK Women Leaders Awards with a shortlist of finalists announced.

Women Leaders founder, Jan Flawn, said: “Having completed our shortlisting day, I have to say I’ve been really impressed by everyone, but especially by the candidates for Female Entrepreneurs, Business Services and finally, Technology & Science.

“It is so wonderful to have such talented women in Milton Keynes and even more wonderful to have them reaching out to Women Leaders.

“It was impressive to see how many applicants we had from highly male-dominated careers”.

Many of the successful finalists took to twitter to share their news.

Laura Miller, founder of Milton Keynes Kids and finalist for Customer Service and Creative Industries, said: “Can’t believe it! So proud to be a finalist in two categories of the Women Leaders Awards Milton Keynes for Milton Keynes Kids @UK_WLs”.

The news didn’t stop there as Laura received a third email notifying her of another successful nomination for Community Impact – Voluntary.

“Eek! Finalist in THREE categories of Milton Keynes Women Leaders Awards – third email came after first two. How exciting”.

MK Dons SET received good news in their inbox as Angela Novell was named as a finalist in the Community Impact – Charity catergory.

They tweeted: “Congratulations to our very own @AngelaNovell who is a finalist for @UK_WLs Women Leaders awards 2017. We’re all very proud!”
