We are proud to announce that Freeths LLP, leading national law firm and long-standing sponsor of the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards, will be sponsoring this year’s Woman with Edge Award.
Each year, the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards will appoint the Woman with Edge Award to a business woman who has demonstrated the courage to challenge and make a real difference. It might be she has disrupted the status quo to make significant change in her industry, been brave in challenging others to be better, or taken a chance on a new business venture that brings radical results.
She is a business woman who demonstrates courage, drive and passion for her chosen path, and above all, strives to make a real difference. She won’t hesitate to stick her head above the parapet if it means making real impact, to disrupt where this may lead to transformation, or to question the world around her if it brings better results. She is a 21st century woman with edge.
Lisa Gilligan, Partner at Freeths LLP said: “At Freeths we are proud to sponsor the Woman with Edge Award. The Woman with Edge to us embodies our values in Doing the Right Thing by delivering results, building trust and thinking differently. What defines this award for us is thinking differently and that edge in being a catalyst for change or transformation. We will be looking for a winner that embodies the key attributes of being a Woman with Edge: being brave, being a disruptor, being a leader and a driver. We are proud that Freeths are the 2019 sponsor of Woman with Edge.”
So what does Edge mean to Freeths?
- It is an understanding that the road to success is always a meander and never straight.
- It is being courageous in challenging the status quo, to disrupt and question
- It is believing in yourself above the rest
- It is an awareness that all winners have at one point felt doubt but have carried on
- It is about being a leader that keeps on driving, as they know where they are going
- It is knowing that by taking chances we become brave
- It is about Freethinking
Last year, this prestigious accolade went to Fiona Allan, Chief Executive and Artistic Director of the Birmingham Hippodrome for, not only leading the commercial success of the venue, but for the creation of an organisation that is meeting the needs of both its employees and its diverse range of customers.
The Freeths Woman with Edge Award truly embodies the spirit of the Women of the Year Luncheon and Awards and embraces the #ThisIsMe theme and we are excited to see who will be taking home the accolade this year and proud that Freeths will be sponsoring the award.
