Here at Torr Waterfield we are delighted to sponsor the Leicestershire Women in Business Awards for a second year in 2016. This year we are sponsoring the Entrepreneur of the year award.
The Awards, which are run by the Leicester Mercury in partnership with the University of Leicester, highlight the contribution made by female professionals and entrepreneurs working in our local business community, women who will hopefully inspire the next generation. The inaugural Awards ceremony last year was a great success.
Over 50% of our team is female; we have business women at different stages of accountancy qualification, from trainees to those with many years of qualified experience, and there are many females in our vital and valued administrative support team.
So for us, it is quite appropriate to support and encourage women in business, and to endorse the principle of the recently proposed implementation of regulations in relation to gender pay gaps.
Given our own background of continuous growth since our formation, it is so important to us locally to have women (and men) with endeavour and ingenuity, who are willing to take the extra step, and occasionally to take a calculated risk, to create and build a business of outstanding quality.
We at Torr Waterfield look forward to reviewing the attributes of the nominated candidates in our nominated category, and to meeting the winner at the Women in Business Awards ceremony later in the year.
