A Cambridgeshire and Norfolk home care company director has been nominated for the ‘Female Entrepreneur of the Year’ award at a prestigious ceremony.
Carolyn Dailey, a Bluebird Care franchise owner, was nominated for the award, as part of the Forward Ladies Awards and Summit, by one of her colleagues for her “dedication and success since joining Bluebird Care”.
“The awards recognise the achievements of business women in the UK. They hope to encourage the growth of professional women through these awards by being a national platform to showcase their achievements and celebrate successful women across the UK,” a spokesman said.
Lily Crook, franchise relationship manager at HSBC Business Banking, who nominated Carolyn, said: “She began at Bluebird Care by opening the Newmarket and Fenland franchise.
“She quickly became very successful in this area and decided to invest in a second franchise nearby, Bluebird Care Kings Lynn and West Norfolk.
“Having secured this second territory, Carolyn’s business endeavours have gone from strength to strength.
“Not only is the business financially successful, but Carolyn is incredibly passionate and really does care about the Bluebird Care brand and the customers her businesses serve.
“Carolyn is also extremely ambitious and is always looking for a new challenge to take on. She is looking to move premises while also tackling the other ambitions and goals she has for her businesses.
“Her determination and work ethic know no bounds and there is no doubt Carolyn will continue to make her businesses the best they can be.”
The Midlands regional final will be held on October 26 and is set to be a “wonderful evening”.
The winners from this, and the other regional finals, will be invited to appear before a live panel of independent judges in November, followed by the National Grand Final in Leeds on December 7.
Griselda Togobo, Forward Ladies Managing Director, said: “The FL National Awards and Summit will celebrate exceptional women and the contribution they make to the UK economy.
“Leaders, men and women will be brought together to discuss the transformative role that companies can play to support gender equality and the role a diverse work force will play in advancing UK competitiveness.
“Events like this are essential as we strive for gender parity and inclusive leadership”.
