We are delighted that Jeanette Forbes OBE, CEO of PCL Group, has been shortlisted for Business Woman of the Year in the 2021 BWS Awards hosted by Business Woman Scotland.

Collaboration and sustainability will be recognised at this year’s Business Women Scotland Business Awards. The key themes at the prestigious annual awards are watch words reflecting the changing ways we have been doing business since the start of the pandemic.

Start-up businesses, women in tech and social media are also among the categories at the awards, back for a seventh year, that mark the achievements of the growing number of women-led businesses and the entrepreneurial talents of women across Scotland.

“We want to showcase some of the most enterprising and successful women from around Scotland: women who’ve had the courage to follow their dreams, whether that be starting their own business, making it to the top in their career, or using their expertise and knowledge to help other women be the best they can be,” said Lynne Kennedy MBE, founder of Business Women Scotland.

“We have always wanted to shine a light on the great work women are doing across Scotland while being role models for the next generation.”

The Business Woman of the Year Award recognises a woman who has made an outstanding impact on the business landscape in Scotland, overcoming challenges and adversity to build a successful business or community enterprise and providing inspirations for others including the next generation of business women.

Jeanette Forbes was previously named Inspirational Woman of the Year at the inaugural Business Women Scotland Awards in 2015. 

Supported by Scotland Can-Do, Business Gateway, STV, Digital Boost and Azure Global, the awards ceremony on 19 November at Oran Mor in Glasgow’s West End.

Good luck to Jeanette and the rest of the shortlisted candidates.
