A MARKETING firm in Emsworth is sponsoring a category at the Venus Awards following last year’s award win by its director Michelle Leggatt.

A record number of nominations were received in 2016 across all categories of these awards, which recognise the achievements of women in the workplace.

Michelle, from Mindworks Marketing, won the Portsmouth region award of Manager of the Year, before going on to scoop the national award as well.

Michelle, a director and team leader for the past 16 years, said the company was inspired after hearing women talk about the challenges they face in building a healthy work-life balance.

She said: ‘With 65 per cent of our team being women, we want to step up and show our support for a unique initiative which celebrates the vital contribution that women in business make to the economy.’
