Any business or relevant individual could nominate themselves for these awards in regional finals or they could be nominated by members of their team, or their clients. Those nominations were then judged by an independent panel of business owners and regional winners were put forward to a national event. For this national final, the judges spent more than 500 hours debating who should be chosen as finalists and winners.
They said of Rachael:
“With over 20 years’ experience of connecting businesses and individuals, Rachael is highly regarded for the quality of her connections and her generosity in giving them. There were a large number of excellent nominations for Rachael made by her colleagues and business friends and it is easy to see why she deserved to win.”
