Central West business owner, Kellie Evans, has been awarded a Brave Award at the prestigious Altitude Awards that were held at a gala ball in Sydney on Saturday 3rd December. Women with Altitude founder and creator of the awards, Andrea Turner- Boys says, “This year we had a field of finalists from across NSW, ACT, WA & VIC. Our awards are an opportunity to acknowledge individuals from these regions who have made outstanding contributions as; business owners, volunteers, employees and creative thinkers, in services, retail and community organisations.”
There were a record number of entries this year and award recipients were selected from 12 categories, chosen for their outstanding contribution over a range of genres.
“These awards are about supporting one another, building on our connections, celebrating how far we’ve come toward a particular goal and planning for the future, both professionally and personally.”
“Small business owners are always incredibly busy and focussed on running and growing their businesses, often with limited support or encouragement. These awards are a way for them to connect with their peers and be recognised in the small business community,” said Andrea Turner-Boys.
