As part of Momentum Media’s continued dedication to the finance industry, Mortgage Business — in partnership with its sister publications — is excited to announce the brand-new Women in Finance Awards.
This flagship event, partnered by NAB, will highlight the outstanding work of women within financial services and put them on a national stage to support the continuing growth and development of women in the financial arena.
A total of 28 awards will recognise individual and group performance, including:
- Mortgage and Finance Broker of the Year;
- Innovator of the Year;
- Mentor of the Year;
- Employer of the Year (group award);
- Business Development Professional of the Year;
- Thought Leader of the Year;
- Chief Executive Officer of the Year;
- Chief Financial Officer of the Year; and
- Executive Assistant/Personal Assistant of the Year.
We invite you to nominate a leading woman (or women) within the financial services sector who is simply a cut above the rest and deserves recognition. Alternatively, you can make a submission directly.
The criteria for these submissions require all award entrants to complete a detailed online document, which may include written referrals and additional documentation to support their submission. The submissions will be assessed against specific metrics and business performance parameters to determine the finalists.
Speaking of the awards, Momentum Media’s head of events, Jim Hall, said: “These awards are an Australian-first program that truly pulls together all areas of financial services under one umbrella to celebrate success and excellence.
“The winners will not only represent inspirational high achievers from the financial sector but also recognise the rising stars of tomorrow.”
Nominations for the awards are open until 21 July.
Winners will be announced at a five-star gala event at The Star Event Centre in Sydney on 21 September 2017.
More information about the awards, the award categories and the basic entry requirements is available on the Women in Finance Awards website.
