Welcome to the 28th annual Inspiring Women Awards.
We are delighted to announce our Awards Lunch Guest Speaker: Mary Turner-Thomson, author of The Bigamist and The Psychopath. Her own story of surviving the ultimate betrayal.
“When Mary met Will Jordan online, she was a single mother who’d given up trying to find Mr Right. And yet here he suddenly was: articulate and attractive, with a fascinating background. Soon they were in love, and when he proposed after a month it seemed recklessly romantic.
Caught up in a whirlwind, Mary accepted that Will’s work often took him away from home, out of contact. She was his rock, supporting him emotionally when a misunderstanding led to criminal charges, and even selling everything when blackmailers threatened to kidnap their children. Together, they took on the world.
And then one day the phone rang, and a woman introduced herself as ‘the other Mrs Jordan”
The Awards will take place online on 14th May 2021 from 12.30 (GMT). We are planning a celebratory event that will make the best use of technology, whilst keeping those heartwarming and entertaining elements in tact.
A luxury Afternoon Tea, supplied by our 2014 Entrepreneur Award winner, Sarah Gallacher (Coco Cabana), will be delivered to your door to add that touch of indulgence, whilst you listen to the shortlisted interviews and applaud the winners.
