Industry Awards Judge Is Shortlisted At Best Business Women Awards
Chief Executive of the Institute of Paralegals, Rita Leat, who is on the judging panel for the upcoming British Wills and Probate Awards, has been shortlisted at the Best Business Women Awards 2019 following their recent finalists’ announcement.
The business world is full of talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who not only run successful businesses but, in many cases, also juggle the needs of their families. The Best Business Women Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range of business categories from women across the UK.
Rita Leat from the Professional Paralegal Register is a finalist in the legal services categories. The Professional Paralegal Register (PPR) is the overarching independent voluntary regulator for paralegals. Its aims are to promote professional paralegals as the recognised fourth arm of the legal profession and to enhance consumer choice and protection.
Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said:
“This is the 5th year of these prestigious awards. We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Well over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.”
Rita Leat, who is the Managing Director of the PPR said:
“I am honoured to be a Finalist for the legal sector category in this year’s Best Business Women Awards. Having achieved my Law Degree as a mature student with three children in 1994 I entered my legal career that has now spanned 27 years.
“The Awards are a fantastic opportunity to recognise and celebrate not only women in business but for this particular category, women in law”.
The gala final of The Best Business Women Awards will be held on 11th October 2019 at The Tower Hotel in London when the winners will be announced.
