Nom­i­nate spe­cial busi­ness woman

The Tatura Guardian - - News -

Mem­ber for Euroa and Deputy Leader of The Na­tion­als Steph Ryan is en­cour­ag­ing Euroa res­i­dents to nom­i­nate a busi­ness­woman who has in­spired them.

Ms Ryan said nom­i­na­tions for the 2015 Tel­stra Busi­ness Women’s Awards were now open and it was the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to nom­i­nate an in­spi­ra­tional lo­cal woman.

‘‘Women through­out the Euroa elec­torate are ac­tively in­volved in busi­ness, con­trib­ute to their com­mu­ni­ties and demon­strate lead­er­ship ev­ery day,’’ Ms Ryan said.

‘‘Of­ten th­ese women re­ceive lit­tle recog­ni­tion for the work they do and th­ese awards pro­vide an op­por­tu­nity for com­mu­ni­ties to show their ap­pre­ci­a­tion.’’

Ms Ryan said the award cri­te­ria in­cluded qual­i­ties such as com­pelling vi­sion, over­com­ing ad­ver­sity, cre­ative prob­lem solv­ing, re­la­tion­ship build­ing, ne­go­ti­a­tion in busi­ness and men­tor­ing oth­ers to suc­ceed.

The six award cat­e­gories are: Start-Up Award; En­tre­pre­neur Award; For Pur­pose and So­cial En­ter­prise Award;

Gov­ern­ment and Academia Award;

Cor­po­rate and Pri­vate Award; and

Young Busi­ness Women’s Award.

‘‘Our re­gion is no­table for strong fe­male lead­ers, from the pi­o­neer­ing days when Euroa’s El­iza For­longe in­tro­duced Meri­nos to Australia, to the many women who are lead­ers in their fields in­clud­ing agri­cul­ture, the arts, busi­ness and in­dus­try,’’ Ms Ryan said.

‘‘Nom­i­na­tions close Sun­day, June 28, and I would en­cour­age ev­ery­one to nom­i­nate a lo­cal woman who in­spires them.’’
