Owner and Managing Director of professional conferencing business ICMS Australasia, Emma Bowyer, has been named a Finalist in the Woman of the Year – Business Services category in the 19th annual Stevie Awards.
Created in 2002 to recognise positive contributions of organizations and working professionals, the Stevie Awards receive more than 12,000 nominations each year from organizations in over 70 countries and have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.
Emma Bowyer only became aware that her staff had put her forward for the award when she was notified earlier in the week that she is one of 15 Finalists in the Woman of the Year – Business Services category.
Throughout the pandemic business events ground to a standstill, yet Emma held steadfast in her resolve to work through the many challenges the company and her clients were facing and did so with the backing of her 30-strong staff, which she retained in full employment conditions throughout.
Executive Director of ICMSA Suellen Holland said Emma’s recognition in this year’s Stevie Awards was a testament to her dedication to the company’s clients and her staff during a period of unprecedented challenges.
“Emma follows the mantra that nobody gets left behind and she was committed to this unconditionally,” Ms Holland said.
“Her strong captaincy of the ICMSA ship demonstrated a willingness to support her team and our clients far beyond what anybody expected in such a turbulent time and I and the entire company are thrilled that she has been recognized for her efforts in this way.”
The winners will be announced during at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas on Friday, 11th November. Nominate executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend. The event will be broadcast on Livestream.
