Friday proved to be a very lucky afternoon for our Managing Director, Priscilla, and the Magma Digital team. Priscilla and some of the team joined the other finalists at The Villa Country House Hotel in Wrea Green for the highly anticipated Women in Business Awards 2015. This award ceremony hosted by Downtown Lancashire in Business, celebrates excellence from female business leaders and entrepreneurs.
Priscilla, who joined Magma Digital following a long career working in the NHS, has been instrumental in driving the growth of the company. Earlier this year, she was part of a team that successfully negotiated a long-term major contract for Magma Digital. Her devotion to moving the company forward and championing change is demonstrated by her energetic nature and description as someone who is “always moving the company forward and never standing still.”
Friday afternoon began with a keynote speech by Maggie O’Carroll, Chief Executive of The Women’s Organisation. Maggie spoke passionately about the economic contribution made by women in business and the continued efforts to recognise this important contribution. Following this powerful introduction, we enjoyed a lovely lunch and followed by the awards ceremony.
After our success at the BIBA awards in 2014; we are thrilled to return with a win of ‘Business of the Year’ at the Women in Business Awards 2015.
Under the stewardship of our Managing Director, Priscilla, Magma Digital will achieve its highest turnover to date. The plans for 2016 and beyond are for continued growth and development of the business. Priscilla will continue to drive the business forward in addition to being instrumental in supporting the wider business community and specifically the PHP Community through PHPNW (the annual conference and monthly forum for software engineers).
We would like to take this opportunity to congratulate every award nominee and winner. Furthermore, we’d like to say a huge thank you to Downtown Lancashire in Business for hosting such a wonderful event.
