On Monday the 12th of October, our Director, Georgie Bullen attended Red Magazine’s ‘Women of the Year Awards’ where she was presented with Red & Clinique’s ‘Smart Woman of the Year 2015’. It was a night of glitz and glamour with stars such as Dame Kelly Holmes, Amelia Fox and Emily Watson attending to show their support for a group of inspirational women.
There were nine awards given out in total for categories ranging from ‘Start up’ to ‘Creative’. The Smart Woman of the Year Award, which Georgie won for her work with Team Insight, was described by Red as being the award which “celebrates an inspiring icon who stands out from any of the award categories. Whether it’s art, politics, fashion, business, charity or more, the award recognises a trailblazer making a difference in the world”. The Smart Woman Award was extra special this year as, for the first time, Red Magazine and Clinique put the final decision of who should win down to a public vote.
Georgie said after winning the award “It is such an honour to win this award, I am still pinching myself! It feels bizarre to be awarded for something that you love doing and is your dream job. I can’t thank Red magazine and Clinique enough for putting our message of visual impairment awareness out there on a National platform”.
