BubDesk founder wins Business Woman of the Year award
BubDesk founder Meg Burrage, who was recently interviewed by The Sector, has been awarded the Business Woman of the Year title at the Belmont BEC and Western Australian small business awards.
Meg founded BubDesk after faces challenges when she was ready to return to work, but needed to keep her son close. BubDesk partners with childcare centres who offer registered care, and also a space for parents to work – typically for once or twice a week for around 12 weeks – until their child is settled in to care.
The small business awards aim to provide recognition and encouragement for small business achievements and are open for small businesses, individuals and organisations in Belmont, the greater Perth metropolitan area and across regional Western Australia.
The Business Woman of the Year award is sponsored and supported by Business & Professional Women WA (BPW WA) and Business & Professional Women Business Incubator (BPW Business Incubator). To be eligible to enter this award category, businesses can be located anywhere in Western Australia and need to highlight their talents and skills as a woman in business.
State President Kate Waters from BPW Western Australia said “BPW Western Australia is part of a global network of Business and Professional Women which make real differences in women’s lives by creating awareness, leading discussion and driving change. Their focus is on issues that affect women and work including equal access to education and training and they recognise business excellence. BPW Business Incubator online training and mentoring programs are conducted by Belmont BEC, which is a specialist business improvement provider to women owners and managers in small businesses across WA, Australia and beyond.”
Belmont BEC CEO and Founder of the Belmont and Western Australian Small Business Awards Carol Hanlon said “The Awards are open to small businesses both within the Belmont area and across the state with 26 categories available for entrants to consider. This is the 25th year we have held our Small Business Awards and it is exciting to see the awards grow each year to provide recognition to those striving for business excellence and acknowledging community achievements.”
