July 12, 2016 // Franchising.com // Claire Rees, Rhythm Time Franchisee for the Isle of Wight, has received the Business Mother of the Year award in this year's National Venus Awards finals.
The Venus awards, known by the organisation as ‘the working women’s Oscars’, were formed in 2009 to recognise, reward and celebrate local working women in business. The regional awards for the Isle of Wight took place in March.
As well as being a single parent to two children, Claire runs the Rhythm Time franchise which provides interactive music classes for babies,toddlers and pre-schoolers. Overcoming many obstacles on the way, her business is flourishing, helping Island babies and children's early development through music.
“Women play such a pivotal role in our local economies, it is crucial that hard-working business women have the spotlight shone upon them," quoted a spokesperson from the Venus Awards.
“As the Venus phenomenon rolls on across the country, more women in business will stand up and let the world know what they do, how they do it, and the challenges they face. This typically leads to more women helping each other through mentoring, networking and plain old ‘doing business’ together," she added.
