Final call for Northern Ireland’s 20 Most Inspiring Women 2016 nominations

By Eleanor McGillie

BUSINESS First Magazine and MGMPR Ltd are making the call for final nominations to find Northern Ireland’s Top 20 Most Inspiring Women.

For two months now, women and men across Northern Ireland have been nominating business women who are doing great things.

The new feature, sponsored by MGMPR, aims to motivate, celebrate and recognise the phenomenal talent which exists in our business community. It’s an opportunity to celebrate women who are doing great things in the world of business and who are deemed inspirational by their colleagues, customers and peers.

Over the next few months, Business First and MGMPR will bring you profile pieces, great interviews and fantastic case studies which will showcase inspiring women working across all sectors and you, the readers, will have the opportunity to vote for who you think should be in the top 20.

But voting ends on July 22 so if you are going on holiday, it’s time to vote before you go.

Sponsoring the 2016 ‘Northern Ireland’s Most Inspiring Women’  feature is MGMPR Ltd – a multi-media PR agency which uses brand journalism as a powerful communication tool.

MGMPR’s director Eleanor McGillie, said: “MGMPR Ltd is delighted to sponsor this feature. I am an avid believer that women deserve to have role models as well as be role models and advocates, in all sectors, be that in the world of engineering, law, pharmaceuticals, energy, retail, healthcare, education, sport and more.

“This feature will actively place women at the forefront to highlight their contributions and the inspirational impact they make.

“This is an opportunity for inspirational women to tell their stories, share experiences, inspire the next generation of creative thinkers, showcase disruptive innovation and celebrate achievements. The feature will create conversations, strike up relationships and promote how women are all working on the same side and in the same direction.

“Having worked in the media for over 20 years, I know first-hand the power of storytelling so we are excited to be a part of this feature and look forward to the stories of Northern Ireland’s Most Inspiring Women.

“But time is running out so we welcome more nominations before the deadline on July 22.”

Gavin Walker, editor of Business First, said: “This is a new feature which will celebrate women and the work women do. So we are asking our readers to nominate someone who you think has a good story to share, a story which will inspire and a story which will excite.

“From May through to August we are calling for nominations to be made and from August 16-21, our online voting will take place where readers can vote for their most inspiring women. We will be featuring profiles of all Northern Ireland’s Most Inspiring Women and in September, Business First will host a networking lunch where our top 20 will be announced.

“Finally, in our November issue, we will publish pictures from September’s lunch. Business First welcomes MGMPR Ltd on board as feature sponsor and we both look forward to nominations being made and votes counted.”
