Wiltshire business owner Natalie Sherman has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Best Business Women Awards.
The awards recognise and reward, female business talent from around the world.
Natalie is a frontrunner in the Best Business Women in Marketing/PR category for her company Naturally Social. The Corsham-based communications agency was set up by the local resident in 2015 to work with companies and organisations that put purpose before profit.
Natalie said: “Being recognised in this year’s Best Business Women Awards is amazing. As a small business the past 18 months have been quite challenging, to be shortlisted for a gold or silver in this global award has made all the hard work worth it. All the women nominated are at the forefront of their expertise and having them all in one room at the final will be incredible. I’m so proud to be a part of it.”
Since the launch of Naturally Social, the company said it has supported the impact of over 200 ambitious charities and ethical companies, enhancing their communications and creating real results.
The company helped Wiltshire Air Ambulance raise £10,000 in just 72 hours to fund its new flight room, and more recently partnering with Priority IT in getting more than 850 donated laptops refurbished and gifted back to communities to help bridge the digital divide across Wiltshire and neighbouring counties.
The Best Business Women Awards are now considered to be one of the UK’s most prestigious awards for business women and are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range industries.
Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards, said: “The 7th year of these prestigious awards has proved to be the most challenging for business owners worldwide. The entries were judged by a panel of business experts who had a tough job reading hundreds of entries.
"To be a finalist in this competition is a major achievement and a mark of quality. All our finalists either win a Silver or Gold Award. The businesswomen selected have been chosen for their business acumen, determination, creativity, and tenacity. All our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.”
Natalie will attend the Gala Final at the Hilton Wembley on October 15 where the Gold Winners of each category will be announced.
