We were delighted when our very own Karen Betts was shortlisted for Natwest ‘Business Woman of the Year’. The awards have become the defining event for Britain’s female entrepreneurs. When you consider Karen’s portfolio of businesses, encompassing Nouveau Lashes, HD Brows, Karen Betts Professional and Nouveau Contour you can see why she was shortlisted.
However, she didn’t win. Instead, the judging panel was so impressed by both her business achievements AND the incredible amount of charity work she does, that they elevated her to their overall “Woman of the Year”. That’s some achievement!
Judges described her “This woman is phenomenal” when agreeing she had led her companies to outstanding success, growing them from a small office in Yorkshire to an international team of over 180 employees with a turnover of £7 million, whilst driving her charity work in the specialist field of Medical Tattooing internationally.
Karen’s confidence, support and determination continues to inspire us all….her employees, her trained technicians, her charity work and her clients.
