This week I was invited and presented with ‘WAW HONORARY AWARD’ and was inducted officially into the ‘WAW Hall of Fame’ on International women’s day 8th March at Holiday Inn London Bloomsbury at the annual prestigious conference gala and dinner of the WAW – Women Appreciating Women.
WAW – Women Appreciating Women is a global movement established by the amazing visionary woman Dr. Pauline Long to bring women together to appreciate one another and to support each other without boundaries in business, humanitarian projects, activism, professionally and personally in all aspects of life.
WAW bring incredibly extraordinary women together and supporting each other’s initiatives and just sharing human love and kindness.

I am to be included in the book: WAW – 100 Most Inspirational Women In The World being launched at House of Commons later in the month.
At the event there were amazing women from the diverse world of business, media, activism, social care, politics, law, charity, manufacturing, sports, education, health sector, consultancy, property development sector, entertainment, film, art, fashion and more on this historic night on International Women’s Day.
It was a great honour to be presented with the award and to be at such an inspiring event with women from across the UK and Overseas.
