Amanda Chalmers has won the ‘Excellence In Media’ Award at Ladies First Professional Development Network Business Awards, a Midlands-wide scheme.

Amanda, pictured, told HTFP: “It was such an honour to be among those singled out in a room full of such truly incredible women.

Ladies First director Tracey McAtamney said: “Congratulations to all the finalists and winners who all truly deserve recognition for their incredible achievements.

“It was wonderful to see so many women supporting and celebrating each other’s successes.”
