Women 1st Shine awards winners

3 Apr

The Women 1st Shine Awards gave Teletext Holidays managing director Victoria Sanders the title of Woman of the Year. The  Outstanding Entrepreneur award went to Jillian MacLean,managing director of Drake & Morgan; Rising Star was Xoe Donovan, general manager, The Longford House Beefeater and Cannock South Premier Inn; Mentor of the Year was Lou Willcock, founding director of IndiCater; and Lifetime Achievement went to Robyn Jones OBE, chief executive of CH&RCo. The Small Business Award went to Abode Hotels, while Sodexo UK & Ireland won the Large Business Award.

Take a look at the Top 100 List of the most influential women in hospitality, leisure, travel and tourism. It is splendid to see so many accomplished women, many of whom are strong female role models, being rewarded in a sector that has a high female presence – but generally not at the senior end.
