Semi-finalist for Venus Awards Dorset 2018

Dianne Edgar, managing consultant at Insight Marketing Services, has  successfully made it through to the semi-finals for the Marketing Excellence Award category in the 2018 Venus Awards initiative in Dorset.

These Awards were launched in Dorset by Founder Tara Howard, and are designed to recognise local business women, and acknowledge their commercial achievements. Dubbed by Channel 4 as “The Working Women’s Oscars”, they celebrate the vital contribution that women in business make to the local, regional, and national economy. Since the initial launch in 2009, the event has expanded to eight regions around the UK.

Tara explains, “We know that women in business lack a level playing field when it comes to awards and recognition, and that they often have many additional responsibilities in family life - making success in business an even greater achievement to be acknowledged.”

The Dorset Venus Awards 2018, run in association with Mercedes-Benz Of Poole, are backed by national sponsors including Lovett International, Luxurycare, and Mploy, as well as local sponsors wanting to raise their profile.

Dianne, who was previously nominated in 2014, is a Chartered Marketer and qualified performance coach. Her clients include local, national and international businesses, she has written three e-books, and been a guest lecturer at several prestigious universities.
