Women Entrepreneurs and Executives Are Under-Represented In Business Awards

As a writer of women’s stories, I repeatedly see the need for women executives and entrepreneurs to be recognized with business awards for their contribution to the Canadian economy. More women’s stories need to be told so they can claim their rightful place as leaders in our society.

1001 Pages connects with diverse communities of women and encourages them to gain the visibility they deserve, so they can shine and inspire future generations.

My Story

I’ve always been in love with words and putting together compelling documents that succinctly deliver quality and integrity. My writing, proofing, and editing business had been my main occupation for years, but in May of 2015, something changed.

That was the year I wrote my first award application for a client – and it won!

This event created a seismic shift in how I viewed my business and what I could achieve for myself and my clients. A second award application quickly followed, and then several others, resulting in finalists and winners every year.

To be honest, I was hooked!

As my business grew, I recognized the need for more women to be supported in gaining the visibility they deserved. So, in 2016 I created the Elite Awards Program to help these women and develop continuity by inspiring and encouraging other extraordinary women to follow this path.

In August of 2017, I reached one of my aspirational goals – the Elite Awards Program had winners in all 3 competition levels: regional, provincial, and national.

You are so much more than what you believe about yourself!

Telling Your Story

As the competitions progressed, I noticed that the diverse communities that make up our society weren’t represented in the Business Awards. I began to question the reasons why, as well as to search for solutions.

I believe that every woman of each community has the right to be recognized for her achievements. When I am gifted with the opportunity to tell your story, I highlight the qualities and accomplishments that are too often buried and mistakenly viewed as ordinary.

I see it as my mission to help make you aware of your true nature as a leader and to bring you strength and courage so you can make your voice heard.

It is my honour to help you find your voice to achieve the recognition you deserve.
