The 14 categories were sponsored by local businesses from a whole host of industries and the semi-finals and finals were hosted by Breeze Volkswagen and Stewarts Garden Centre respectively.

My Babylog and My Weddinglog M.D. Barbara Fowler (2nd from left) was nominated for “Networker of the Year”, sponsored by Playgolf Bournemouth and – we are absolutely delighted to announce – she brought home the award!!

“Barbara Fowler is the most tenacious person I know… she NEVER gives up… she NEVER gives in and she NEVER (ever) takes “No” for an answer!”

It’s a great achievement to not only win but also to be recognised by other business people for her contribution within Bournemouth and Dorset networks.

The Venus Awards are often referred to as the “Business Women’s Oscars” so true to form Barbara made a gift of personalised Oscar statues to other friends who were nominated… well why should Hollywood A-listers only get one?!
