Acquisition International is an international, monthly digital business magazine committed to bringing its readers up to the minute news, comment, and analysis. Launched in 2010, it has, over the years, evolved into a business title that professionals rely on to bring them the business knowledge, insight, and news they need. Each month their magazine is circulated to in excess of 108,000 professionals, including Top Tier Managers, Investment Professionals, Business Advisers, and Service Providers.1
On October 29, 2021, Acquisition International proudly presented the 2021 Influential Businesswoman Awards to acknowledge and support the female powerhouses who make up the thousands of female-owned businesses across the globe.
I am honored to announce that I have been awarded the honor of this prestigious award.2 This is an award given to businesswomen around the world who are innovative in their respective fields and also strive to empower women in business, promoting equal opportunities in primarily male-dominated fields. The process begins with a nomination via the magazine’s subscribers, online visitors, clients, social media followers, and wider circulation. Once the nomination is formally accepted by the nominee, material for more supporting evidence can be submitted. Lastly, there is a team of researchers who examine the material provided as well as gather information independently from public sources. All of these resources are assessed for client dedication, online reputation, business growth, client feedback, longevity, innovation, and business performance.
Recognizing that there are few females in the research field, and even fewer specializing in such consulting services, I give the focus of my hires within The InGenuity Group as well as SREDucation not only to women but to military spouses, as I understand first-hand how difficult it can be to have a career you can take with you during frequent military moves.
My advice to other women looking to make a difference in their field is this:
“See where your competitors fall short and then work to see how you can fix these shortcomings. Be adaptable – if something does not work, scrap it, or adapt it. Most importantly, demonstrate your excellence and expertise publicly and clients will find you – writing so much about the program in a public forum meant that clients always found me.”3
