The results will be announced at the E3 Business Awards Dinner, which will take place on Thursday, July 13, at the Macron Stadium in Bolton.
Held annually since 2013, the E3 Awards are now in their fifth year and celebrate diversity and achievement within the North West business community, and the nominees comprise a broad spread of companies, charities, social enterprises and individual entrepreneurs.
Organiser, 1EM managing director Mubarak Chati said: “Every year, the E3 name seems to get more widely known, and each year’s entries produce some surprises.
“This time , it was the number of nominees we received for the Outstanding Woman in Business category - the calibre of which has been breathtaking. We normally tend to have a shortlist of just four but, in this case, we felt compelled to extend it in recognition of the popularity of the category, and the exceptionally high standard of entrants.”
