The Property Zest team is happy to share a wonderful news: Our very own Karen Young has been chosen as a Finalist in the 2017 Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network (SCBWN) Business Woman of the Year Award! Karen is a finalist under the Corporate Business Woman of the Year category.
The annual SCBWN Business Woman of the Year Awards is organised by Sunshine Coast Business Women’s Network, a non-profit organisation assisting women on the Sunshine Coast to realise their ultimate business and personal potential, encouraging them to make a difference in the community. Now on its 19th year, the SCBWN Business Woman of the Year Awards has been recognised as one of the most respected Award events on the Sunshine Coast. Past winners have gone on to become finalists of (and even won) the State and National Telstra Business Awards.
Out of the 170 nominees and 60 submissions, Karen has made it to the two-round selection panel to be a finalist for Corporate Business Woman of the Year category. Twenty-eight other finalists were listed for the following categories: Outstanding Business Woman of the Year, Micro Small Business Woman of the Year, Professional Business Woman of the Year, Young Business Woman of the Year, and Sustainable Business Woman of the Year.
Being a finalist to the SCBWN adds to Karen’s growing list of recognitions. In 2015, Karen made it as a Finalist in Telstra Business Women’s Awards (Start Up category). She was also awarded Buyers Agent of the Year by the Real Estate Institute of Queensland (REIQ) for two consecutive years (2015 and 2016) and was a finalist again in 2017.
Karen, together with the other finalists, will be honoured during a gala night where winners will also be announced on August 12th, 6pm at The Events Centre in Caloundra. Let’s all wish Karen the best of luck!
