Commenting on the awards, Downtown CEO and Group Chairman, Frank McKenna said; “After an incredibly tough few years, it is fantastic too see the amount of entrepreneurs in the city region who are all doing incredible things for the city.
“Liverpool has an abundance of female entrepreneurs as shown by the quality of not only the winners today, but all the nominees. And none highlight the drive and determination shown by these incredible businesswomen more than today’s headline sponsors Say it With Diamonds.
