#wow award

28 June, 2012 in news

Yesterday was a good news day: Room to Bloom won a #WOW award

jaqueline-gold-WOW-award-june-2012

The #WOW award was created by Jacqueline Gold, the hugely successful Chief Executive, entrepreneur and businesswoman behind the Ann Summers and Knickerbox brands, so that she could use her reach and influence to promote and champion other women in business. I was jumping up and down when I heard the news, it’s so nice to receive a bit of recognition and what she said just put the widest smile on my face: “I love your portfolio – the effort and attention to detail you put in is exquisite”. There is that smile again!

Three winners are announced on Twitter every Wednesday (WOW = Women On Wednesday). Congratulations to fellow winners My Travel Surprise (things to do for kids on the road!) and Fashion Bloodhound (hunting down pre-loved designer wear). If you’d like to enter the #WOW awards, there’s a great post  by former winners Philosophy Flowers with lots of information about the award and an interview with Jacqueline over here. Fingers crossed!

    Secondly, thanks for the mention in your blog post and the link to the little interview we did with Jacqueline. It’s good to know that a super successful women in business also has the time to promote and talk to the people who are trying to make a name for themselves in often very competitive marketplaces. Once again congratulations and good luck in the future.
