Be Recognised as Australia’s Best and Brightest Mumpreneur

The brightest and most innovative of Australia’s professional business mums will be named the winner of the 2011 Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards in Sydney this August.

The Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur awards recognise the amazing efforts of women (and men) who successfully combine motherhood and business across a number of categories. The awards are now in their third year and are a much-anticipated event in the business calendar.

Past winners Antonette Golikidis and Catherine Oehlman have enjoyed great benefits after winning the award and credit the experience with helping grow their businesses and confidence. The award could lead to increased media exposure, website traffic and business growth for the winner, as well as make them a sought-after speaker and expert.

Connect2Mums owners Peace Mitchell & Katy Garner said nominations were not only restricted to fans – business owners could nominate themselves and acknowledge their achievements.

“It’s a good way for businesses to promote their offerings and get their name out there,” Peace explained.

“Many business mums don’t recognise how important their work is, so that is why the AusMumpreneur Awards are so important,” Katy added.

2011 could be your year to make an impact in business with the Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards recognising the best and brightest in the mumpreneur industry.
