Double award shortlist for Lancashire hotel

A Lancashire hotel is celebrating following two of its employees being shortlisted in a coveted women in business awards for the region.

Giulia D’Ambrosio, quality and training manager, and Sharon Brooks, business development manager based at Best Western Plus Samlesbury Hotel, Preston, have been shortlisted in the Lancashire Women in Business Awards 2017 in the categories of Female Innovator and Hospitality respectively.

The awards recognise and reward successful and ambitious women countywide and consist of two elements; an online voting stage followed by the final decision being made by an independent judging panel where each nominee will be invited to submit supporting evidence to complement their entry.

The double award nomination comes as welcome news to the group that own the hotel, Squire Hotels, and director of operations Jodi Masterson said: “The awards are an important event within the region’s calendar and one that we are very proud to have not one, but two members of our staff in the running for.

“Both ladies have done exceptionally well to be shortlisted and have already beaten off tough competition from peers within the region, and also the industry in which we operate, and to even be recognised is a huge achievement.”

The next stage of the awards will consist of a voting mechanic followed by the final decision being made by a judging panel.

A spokesperson from Downtown In Business Lancashire, which hosts the awards, said: “Lancashire is a hotbed for female business talent, but all too often they slip under the radar.

“This year we have received more nominations than ever before and the shortlist is incredibly strong.”

The awards ceremony will take place on Thursday, November 23, with a gala dinner at Villa Hotel, Wrea Green, where winners will be announced in 15 categories and people are encouraged to place their votes via the online voting platform
