Image magazine has selected 87 women for the shortlist for its Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2017. The winners will be announced at a gala dinner on Monday, November 20, at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road.

Now in its eleventh year, the awards aims to recognise and celebrate inspirational women across all areas of the Irish business world. The overall Businesswoman of the Year award is chosen from nominations to the other categories or on the judges’ own recommendations.

Clodagh Edwards, CEO, Image Publications, commented: “Compiling the shortlist this year was a huge challenge. With over 443 individual entries, our largest number ever, competition proved stronger than ever for places. It took a lot of deliberation, and the women who made this shortlist are truly inspirational.”

Tickets for the event are priced at €145 plus VAT.
