Last night the Naked Element team attended the DevelopHER Awards. Being a big believer in women in tech, NE were very proud to support the inaugural award ceremony in Norwich and the Innovation Award was sponsored by us too!
The main conference room at the King’s Centre had its tables decorated with pink and black balloons and silver stars. Goody bags were on every chair (which included little wind-up Google Android toys!) and the chocolate fountain was flowing. A proper awards ceremony! After the wine reception and buffet the award giving began. I had no less than three nominees on my table, including our web designer Shelley Burrows from smellyrabbit.
Organiser Vickie Allen won an award of her own from Inspired Women and our director, Paul Grenyer went home with a bottle of Jura as a thank you for his help and support. It was great to see so many women being recognised and supported in an area that is usually male dominated. Vickie said that she received more than 140 nominations, far more than she was expecting, and plans for the DevelopHER Awards 2016 were already underway!
