A Horsham business owner has been recognised by Acquisition International Magazine as a winner in the 2019 Influential Businesswoman Awards.
Michelle Betts, founder and owner of ByJove Media, has been awarded the ‘Most Influential Female in Social Media Marketing – UK’ award. On discovering she had received the award, Michelle commented ‘I am incredibly proud to receive this award and to be recognised with many other wonderful female business owners across the world. ByJove Media has grown with the support of local businesses in Sussex, and it is fantastic to be awarded this title.’
ByJove Media provides technical social media training and support, as well as a full social media management service. Michelle helps small businesses get to grips with social media, providing reviews and action plans, affordable and understandable training and ongoing support. She has helped a number of local businesses with their social media, increasing their brand awareness and increasing their client base.
The Influential Businesswoman Awards add their voice to the masses who believe gender equality is the only solution for a sustainable global economy. Promoting and encouraging women to take part in entrepreneurial endeavours and providing opportunities in market-based enterprises can be pivotal to lifting communities across the world.
Bearing this in mind, they recognise that female entrepreneurs still face many challenges. These include limited access to financing, training and business networks, in addition to the uncertain job markets and fluctuating economies shared with their male counterparts.
Considering these additional burdens, it seems imperative to recognise the achievements made by businesswomen globally; not just the 105 million self-employed women in the UK, or the 9.4 million woman-owned firms in the USA, but to all the businesswomen who have surmounted so many obstacles to attain professional success.
Discussing the programme in more detail, Jessie Wilson, Awards Coordinator, said: “All of my winners have broken the glass ceiling and helped herald a new era for women in business. As such, I am incredibly proud of their success and wish them the best of luck going forward.”
Acquisition International prides itself on the validity of its awards and winners. The awards are given solely on merit and are awarded to commend those most deserving for their ingenuity and hard work, distinguishing them from their competitors and proving them worthy of recognition.
