Sonal has never entered any awards before so the Networking Mummies Recognition Business Awards were a completely new concept for her to embrace from the beginning of the process and entering her nomination form to each step after that and including the awards night itself.
We spoke to Sonal and asked her why she wanted to enter these awards, Sonal replied "I wanted more exposure for my business and to build my confidence so I can enter more award events like this in the future" and certainly did get more exposure for her business by sending out a press release she managed to get a feature on Coventry news and sport web page and she's going to be interviewed by Radio Warwickshire.
Sonal went through several emotions when she learnt she'd made it through as a finalist "I was thrilled, excited, privileged and honoured" she explained and feels she made it through to the final for a number of reasons, Her dedication and staying power in the business, her business growth in the last 3 years and how she shares the business opportunity.
Sonal attended the black tie event at Jurys Inn, Birmingham on the 29th March 2014 and found it was a great evening, not only as an excuse to get dresses up but also as a fantastic networking opportunity with great food and entertainment.
So what are Sonals plans for the future? "I'm going to enter some more awards and hopefully be back at the Networking Mummies Awards 2015 as a finalist!"
