Catherines Professional category sees her keep company with successful young women from diverse fields including medicine and accountancy.

The awards act as a springboard for further initiatives, such as the Women of the Future Ambassadors Programme, which is designed to inspire future female leaders by helping each years shortlisted nominees become role models for the next generation of talent.

This auspicious programme is the brainchild of entrepreneur and motivational speaker Pinky Lilani OBE, who also co-founded the Asian Women of Achievement Awards.
