Professional Paralegal Register MD shortlisted for Best Business Woman Awards
The managing director (MD) of the Professional Paralegal Register (PPR) has been shortlisted for this year’s Best Business Women Awards/PPR.
Ruth Leat of PPR was announced as a finalist in the 2019 awards, which will be announced in October. PPR said:
“The business world is full of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs, who not only run successful businesses but, in many cases, also juggle the needs of their families.
“The Best Business Women Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range of business categories from women across the UK.”
Organiser of The Best Business Women Awards, Debbie Gilbert, said:
“This is the fifth year of these prestigious awards – we were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK.
“This is a tough competition judged by business experts – to be a finalist is a major achievement.”
Ms Gilbert said that finalists had been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity.
“Well over eighty percent of start-ups fail in the first three years – and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.”
Managing Director of the PPR, Ruth Leat, added:
“I am honoured to be a finalist for the legal sector category in this year’s Best Business Women Awards.
“Having achieved my Law Degree as a mature student with three children in 1994, I entered my legal career that has now spanned twenty-seven years.
“The awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise and celebrate not only women in business, but for this particular category, women in law.”
The gala final of The Best Business Women Awards will be held at The Tower Hotel in southeast London on 11 October, when the winners will be announced.
