Today is International Women's Day - a day to celebrate the achievements of women from all over the world. We are very honoured to have had the pleasure of meeting a number of inspirational women over the years.
In 2000 Kerri Middleton won the Shell LiveWIRE Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award for Scotland with her stationery gift business, K TWO Products. Still going strong, Kerri talks to us about how things have changed over the years.
In 1995 Suzanne Neville was in the Shell LiveWIRE UK Finals with her Bridal and Evening Wear design label, Suzanne Neville Couture. Now a leading figure in British Design, Suzanne talks to us about her entrepreneurial journey.
We asked some of our former Shell LiveWIRE winners what their experience was of hiring and managing people as a young business owner and, now all successful companies, what advice they wished they had received then!
Since winning a Shell LiveWIRE Grand Ideas Award, we've had great press coverage - 4 articles in local papers and an article in the Architect's Journal. This has made us much better known locally and we have secured a great contract as a result of our articles. Everybody knows what we're doing now which has generated huge interest in our way of thinking and working as a company.
