Belfast Telegraph Woman of the year Awards 2011 - Inspirational Woman of the Year

The Inspirational Woman of the Year will be someone who has inspired others with that extra special achievement: whether it be overcoming illness or difficulties or devoting their time to a worthy charity. Whether it’s behind the scenes or in the public eye, this person should be an inspiration in terms of her attitude, work and life.

How to Nominate

For each category, the nominee should have been in her line of work for at least 12 months and have shown particular success, a demonstrable measure of achievement, how she inspired others around her and how she has demonstrated passion, drive and energy in what she does.

Each category winner will be presented with a beautiful Belleek Living trophy at a gala dinner at the Ramada Plaza Hotel, Shaws Bridge, Belfast, on Thursday, December 8.

You may enter nominations in any or all of the nine categories. The overall award for Belfast Telegraph Woman of the Year in association with Dixons, Coleraine, will be chosen by the judges from the winners of the nine categories. Each of the nominations must be supported by a citation which should not be more than 200 words.

Citations should also include your name address and daytime telephone number and should arrive not later than 12 noon on Monday, November 21. Send them to: BT Woman of the Year, Belfast Telegraph, 124 Royal Avenue, Belfast, BT1 1EB or by email to: womanoftheyear@belfasttelegraph.co.uk.

A colleague who takes great pleasure in making everyone feel miserable should be reprimanded. Make it clear you aren't the only person who is suffering from their abuse. Explain how this bully is ruining morale. It's a system wide problem that needs to be nipped in the bud.More
