Description

This is THE event you have been waiting for! A must for anyone looking for inspiration and empowerment in 2019. The successful awards ceremony launched in 2017 to celebrate the millions of women who go un-noticed or acknowledged for the selfless work they do each day, is back. Be sure to book early as the 2017 event sold out weeks ahead. We are excited to welcome Magic FMs Angie Greaves as our host/MC this year.

The Amazing Women Awards, held over Afternoon Tea, will be bigger and better than 2017, with a fantastic line up of inspirational speakers and stories that will melt any heart. The Amazing Women Awards is to recognise the achievements of women all over the country who’ve achieved something against the odds. Women who are passionate about a cause or battled against adversity, it’s for all those women tirelessly working away in the background, perhaps started a successful business or charity single-handedly and are giving back in some way. This is their turn to shine.
