Female Entrepreneurship Winners
We are so excited to announce that Ashwells Timber founder and Managing Director Janine Davies-Tutt has been chosen as one of the 15 business owners to feature in NatWest #BeTheRoleModel, a nationwide campaign and competition to tackle stereotypes of female founders and help create a more inclusive visual landscape that shows entrepreneurs as they really are.
NatWest received more than 3,000 nominations from SMEs across the UK, but were bowled away by Janine’s work over the past 30 years to reclaim tropical hardwoods and prevent further deforestation. Judges also applauded Ashwells work as founding members of SALVO UK, an organisation that specialises in bringing together like-minded companies within the reclamation sector.
Margaret Jobling, chief marketing officer at NatWest, says: “Every entrant had a brilliant story to tell about why their business was extraordinary, and we saw a real breadth of sectors and industries taking part. Arriving at our winners was a really tough process, but we’re so excited to partner with these 15 businesses to create impactful ads that will help their brands thrive, as well as offering them support and expertise through our Enterprise programme to help them take their business to the next level. Congratulations to all our winners.”
Making a green recovery from COVID 19?
