We couldn’t be more proud of our Managing Director, Gail Blandford, who has been nominated for the Businesswoman Of The Year & Small Business Owner Of The Year at the Cairns Business Women’s Club Businesswoman Of The Year Awards! 

Gail is a vibrant person to work with and an incredible driving force within our company and leads by example. From taking time in passing down her knowledge to fighting for NDIS participants across Australia, she really is a role model that we look up to and strive to achieve! We couldn’t be more proud of her for getting this nomination.

The Cairns Business Women’s Club (CBWC) was founded in the 1980s with a vision to improve the profile of women in business in Cairns. Thirty years later the Club continues to realise that vision through its regular networking events, annual awards and leadership role in the Cairns business community providing support, inspiration and professional development to its members. Soon after the Club was formed members identified the need to recognize the talented women of our region who were committed to succeeding in business. Held annually, the CBWC Awards acknowledge the talent and hard work of nominees from amongst its members and other Cairns locals and have become a ‘badge of honour’ in the Cairns business community.

In 2021 they held their first Tropical Food Safari with fantastic support and their Annual Awards returned culminating in a gala ball (after a year off due to COVID restrictions). In 2022, CBWC will continue to grow attendance numbers at existing events and introduce new breakfast events increasing the value add for members and creating even more inspiring opportunities for current and new members.

The Cairns Business Women’s Club would like to congratulate Gail on being nominated for the prestigious CBWC Businesswoman Of The Year Awards, which is scheduled for Friday 22nd July 2022.

Good luck, Gail!
