AUSTRALIAN PCO boss Emma Bowyer has been named as a finalist in Woman of the Year – Business Services category of the Stevie Awards.
Bowyer, owner and managing director of ICMS Australasia, will be one of 15 entrepreneurs contending for the title during a live-streamed gala event at Caesar’s Palace, Las Vegas, on November 11.
The Stevie Awards for Women in Business is hailed as a premier event worldwide that honours women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run.
Suellen Holland, executive director of ICMSA, said Bowyer’s recognition in this year’s Stevie Awards showed her dedication to the company’s clients and her staff during a period of tough challenges brought on by the Covid pandemic.
ICMSA’s 30-strong staff were retained in full employment conditions throughout the pandemic slowdown.
“Emma follows the mantra that nobody gets left behind and she was committed to this unconditionally,” Holland said.
“Her strong captaincy of the ICMSA ship demonstrated a willingness to support her team and our clients far beyond what anybody expected in such a turbulent time and I and the entire company are thrilled that she has been recognised for her efforts in this way.”
This year’s Stevie Awards for Women in Business event will also see the fifth edition of the Women|Future Conference, a three-day educational and networking conference to be presented virtually November 8-10.
