Leanne Imbro nominated for the 2011 Telstra Business Women’s Awards
Recently I received an email congratulating me and advising me that someone thinks my success is amazing and have nominated me for the 2011 Telstra Business Women’s Awards – see attached link for further details about the Awards http://www.telstrabusinesswomensawards.com/2010-awards/program-overview-14.aspx .
To date, I still have not been able to find out who the culprit is, however, am truly honoured at just the thought of someone nominating me.
Today I have worked tirelessly on my application to be considered for this Award and now need to wait until early August to see whether I have successfully moved to the next round, which involves a face to face interview. Either way, I feel like I have achieved so much already just by being recognised.
The application involved a number of questions that enabled me to reflect on my past achievements and to also give great consideration to my future business and personal growth.
One of the questions I wish to share with you was ‘who has most inspired you during your career’? The intent of this question was to identify influential and inspiring mentors or individuals who have inspired your professional journey and successes. For me, the answer was simple. “2 people. My Dad and my very first boss, Catalina (who I am very proud to say is now a client)! Both run their own businesses, both have been extremely successful, both have provided me with tremendous work ethics, training and mentoring. They both continue to play a vital role in my life and my business and to them I am grateful”.
This message is really to let you know 2 things:
- As one of my very special clients, I have included you in my application as a potential business referee. Many of you have already written me a testimonial and these have also been included as part of my application.
- You have all contributed to my business in one way or another, and I have been privileged to be exposed to various industries and people through you. Without my wonderful clients, my business could not be successful, so thank you.
A very excited Telstra Business Women’s Award Nominee
