Entrepreneur Lynne Morgan has spoken of her delight after winning an award with her Woof-Box business.
Lynne, 47, from Santon, Isle of Man, has been picked as a winner of Jacqueline Gold’s Women on Wednesday award
Jacqueline, chief executive of Ann Summers and Knickerbox, launched a competition in June 2011, to support women in business.
Women On Wednesday, or #WOW, takes place every Wednesday and is run through Jacqueline’s twitter page. Each week Jacqueline encourages female business owners to tweet her using the #WOW hash tag along with their iness name and a short overview of what they do.
Jacqueline then picks her three top entries for that week and re-tweets them to her followers (currently more than 42,600).
The three winners also receive a #WOW badge which they can display on their company websites.
Lynne Morgan, who was featured in Business News earlier this month, said she was ‘thrilled and delighted that Woof-Box has been awarded this huge accolade. I never in a million years dreamed that my business would be chosen.’
Jacqueline Gold receives hundreds of entries every week from women in business.
When selecting the three winners, Jacqueline looks for businesses that are interesting, that have strong brand values and that she thinks have potential to grow and succeed in their industry. She looks for quality products, well designed websites and entrepreneurs who appear to have a good business sense and who have thought about what the consumer wants and how to deliver it.
This is what top businesswoman Jacqueline tweeted when she announded the winner: “@JoinWoofBox specialises in top quality goods for dogs, delivered straight to your door – Fab!” (Jacqueline Gold)
Jacqueline stays in regular contact with all of the #WOW winners, offering advice where needed and also asking for regular updates as to how the winners are doing.
Lynne, who also has a home in the Peak District, sourced more than 1,000 products for Woof-Box.
She said: ‘Delivering happiness to dogs everywhere is our slogan and this is what we aim to do.’
