About the Awards

Merseyside Woman of the Year

Jean, Ellie and Elaine from Women In Business NW are the organisers and facilitators of the awards event. Neither they nor Women In Business are event organisers or event managers.

The purpose of the Merseyside Women of the Year event is to celebrate women’s achievements, to reward the best of the best, and leave a legacy for the next generation of Women.The event has been designed to reward the unsung heroines of Merseyside, for their achievements in just doing what they do best, changing lives, giving that extra meaning to people’s lives across Merseyside.

Annually the judging panel receive over a significant number of nominations, making their job very difficult! Due diligence is carried out on all the nominees, to ensure that only the most deserving are selected as finalists.


This year, the event has helped to raise money for students from LJMU and Radio City Cash for Kids.

The overall “Merseyside Woman of the Year”, is voted for by members of the general public, Radio City listeners and is completely independent.

Attendees at the 2014 event told us that this was the best event ever and each year got harder to beat.

Minster for employment Esther McVey told attendees that this event was one of the the best in the country and she was delighted to have been a part of it for so long.

Exciting new developments for our next year are already underway, if you think you or your business could help us to make 2015 an even bigger and better event then please call the office in the first instance and speak to Elaine 0151 653 3338.


Merseyside Women of the Year has been chosen as one of the events in the International Radio-City-Cash-For-Kids-Logo TBFestival of Business (IFB). 2014 we were honoured to become part of such a major event in the IFB calendar.
