The first thing I did after hearing the news that I had been selected as a finalist was phone my dad! As a team we have worked so hard over the last two years and this award goes to recognise our efforts. It means the world that I have won tonight. I will be using it in our marketing campaigns. I would hope that this award will inspire other women in my team, I would like to use it to educate young people in local schools to encourage them to take a career in engineering and construction. I have loved every second of taking part in the awards, in particular meeting like-minded people.
I will absolutely advise my company to take part again next year; I feel just been a finalist has given me more confidence in my field. For companies considering submitting nominations in 2016 I say Go For It!
