Commenting on the positive news, Sarah shared
“I’m excited and humbled to have been shortlisted in the Entrepreneur of the Year awards category; I am in great company and proud to have been recognised with such an inspiring group of individuals. It is certainly true that the last two years have seen exceptional growth for 365 Response – we’ve invested in our team and collectively supported thousands of vulnerable individuals through technology.
Being acknowledged in these awards that celebrate female professionals that are striving to break digital boundaries, is a great reminder that we should continue to empower women and push for a more inclusive tech sector.”
This year’s winners will be chosen by the independent panel of expert judges and announced during a special gala ceremony at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House on 28 February 2022. The event will bring together tech leaders across the UK to celebrate leadership, excellence and innovation, for the first face-to-face meeting since the start of the pandemic.
We’d like to wish all of the nominee’s luck and we’ll be there to celebrate the 1000+ women breaking boundaries across the technology sector.
