Glaziers Hall's Weiner sparkles at Shine

Glaziers Hall managing director Janice Weiner picked up the Businesswoman of the Year – SME prize at the 2007 Shine Awards, held at the Italian Cultural Institute in London’s Belgrave Square last night. The award recognises women from business, with fewer than 250 employees, who are thriving in corporate Britain and have made a significant contribution to the success of their organisations. The accolade went to Weiner for helping conference and banqueting venue Glaziers Hall, based on London’s south bank, grow into a thriving business. The judges found her hands-on approach to business, including her direct dealings with clients, contributed to the venue’s success. Weiner said that the accolade came a year after her mother’s death, “so this award will be in her honour and shows her how much I have achieved in my lifetime”. Many nominees in the category were women who tackled difficult challenges and made significant changes to their workplaces. Mango Event Management managing director Lindsay Whitmore was also on the shortlist. Other award winners were: Business Woman of the Year (Large Enterprises) – Maxjet Airways UK managing director Carolyn Moxon Public Sector Woman of the Year – Visit Britain, England sales and trade marketing, Claire Hancer Business Owner of the Year – Edwards & Blake director Shirley Edwards Young Achiever of the Year – New Park Manor Hotel and Spa general manager Leigh Jenkins Industry Expert of the Year – Business in Sport and Leisure chief executive Brigid Simmonds OBE Woman of the Year – Kuoni Holidays managing director Sue Biggs Company of the Year – Knock Travel
