The Serocor Group's Business Services Director, Kathleen Smith, celebrated other women in business alongside colleagues from the Group at the Women in Business Awards gala dinner last night.
Sponsored by Deloitte, Barclays, Blake Morgan and Clarify, the awards celebrate successful women who, through leadership, entrepreneurialism, mentoring skills and innovations stand out from their colleagues.
The 2015 Women in Business Awards were presented during a gala dinner at Oakley Hall, near Basingstoke last night where the guest speaker was Naomi Riches MBE, inspirational speaker and para-rowing gold medallist. The event proceeds went to support the charity, Hope for Justice.
