[C]umbrian based mum, and business owner, Kerryanne Wilde, has earned herself a place in the final line-up of The Mpower National Business Awards, prestigious awards celebrating parents throughout the UK who manage the difficult task of juggling business with family life.
Founder of CERT (UK) Ltd – Community Emergency Response Team UK, mother of two from Shap CUMBRIA, Kerryanne set up CERT (UK) formerly Eden Flood Volunteers at the height of Storm Desmond on the 5th December 2015 while our county in the height of devastation by the floods.
Kerryanne has been shortlisted for the Social Impact category.
As well as being shortlisted for this category, Kerryanne is also in with a chance of winning the title of Mpower Woman of The Year 2018, which will be awarded to the mum who is an inspiration to all women in business, and could walk away with a fantastic prize.
Having reached the finals of The Mpower National Busness Awards, Kerryanne said “After being in the industry for such a short time and seen how competitive and difficult it is to navigate and gain support for the 3rd sector and new charities, I’m shocked to have been recognised at a national level for what I see, as a passion in life and not a job, that’s helping, caring and supporting those less fortunate and vulnerable in society. This award is not only about the charitable work carried out by the organisation, but also acknowledging the complexities of being a formidable and exceptional business woman, mother wife, carer and individual as well. So, to recognise all the other hats which many women in business is a breath of fresh air.
“There are a lot of awards out there, and we are proud about what makes these awards, and the women who enter, different!” said Nicola Huelin, multi-award winning business coach, founder of the Mpower awards, and mum to four children with her partner Graham. “Often invisible to most, mums in business are changing the business landscape, while raising and inspiring the generations of the future. We believe their efforts and successes in overcoming the unique challenges of combining business and motherhood, particularly in those first few years when it’s the hardest, need to be recognised and celebrated.”
Judging Kerryanne’s entry will be a panel of top parent entrepreneurs but she’ll have to wait until 23rd June, when the winners will be announced at The Mpower Gala, being held at the Holiday Inn Bloomsbury in London.
The Mpower Gala has been called The Networking Party of The Year and is open to all entrepreneurs and business owners for an evening of networking, inspiration and celebration. Tickets can be purchased through the Mpower website, where you’ll find a range of resources and information for mums in business www.mpowerawards.com
