Having just completed its 9th year, The Women In Sales Awards is hosted by Zars Media; a firm dedicated to promoting the accomplishments of women in business. By encouraging women to enter a traditionally male-dominated field like sales, Zars hopes to diversify the talent pool for modern businesses.
WISA received over 500 nominations this year from companies such as Ricoh, Verizon, Salesforce, American Express, Barclaycard, Virgin Media, and Adobe, among others. 170 finalists were then selected between 22 categories; with the final winners being chosen based on criteria such as attitude, skills, process, knowledge, commercial acumen, and the ability to achieve targets.
“The awards night was just incredible! To be in a room full of so many talented female salespeople was such an honour,” says Apogee’s Director of Inside Sales, Laura Bradley-Carter, who was also a WISA judge for the Inside Sales Executive Award.
“I’m so pleased for Sarah Uddin, who won in her category, and to Sarah Walters, Lyndsey Corby, and Katy Sykes – you are winners in all our eyes! I’d like to thank WISA for having me as a judge for the second year, and look forward to next year’s celebrations.”
