Following their success at the Hampshire Venus Awards, local law firm Warner Goodman is delighted to announce that they have also been crowned Company of the Year at the National Venus Awards.  The firm, with four offices in Southampton, Portsmouth, Fareham and Chandler’s Ford, was awarded the title at the National Finals ceremony on Thursday 12th July at Audley’s Wood Hotel in Basingstoke. 

Venus Awards Company of the Year

Marketing Manager Karen Clarkson, who accepted the award on behalf of the firm, commented, “We were so proud to have been chosen for the Regional Award in November and we are now overwhelmed to have been chosen as the National winner.  We truly promote equal opportunities across our firm and realise that our employees, male or female, have families and lives outside of work.  That is why we have invested heavily in our IT and phone systems to allow benefits such as flexible working.  Promotion opportunities are available for all, which can be seen when looking at our Partners and Associates; seven of our 17 Partners are women, four out of six of our Business Heads are women and 20 out of 24 Associates are women.  I believe these are the reasons why our sponsor for the Regional Awards, Silver Lining Convergence, chose us in November, and we are very grateful to them for doing so.” 

The Venus Awards were created by Tara Howard in 2009 to celebrate women in business across all industries and job roles.  The National Finals brought together the winners of the Regional Awards across Hampshire, Devon and Cornwall, Dorset and Thames Valley, with categories including Inspirational Woman of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year and Networker of the Year.

Karen concludes, “We would like to say congratulations to all of the National winners and finalists, as well as the Regional winners and finalists.  There were so many spectacular stories of success, courage and overcoming adversity and it has been a wonderful journey for us as a firm; one that we hope to continue in future years.”
