Women’s Wedding Network

Branding yourself as an award-winning business: How to find and apply for awards and what to do when you have won. If you are running a business like a five-star restaurant, it’s something to be proud of and something you’ll want others to know. There’s no better way to show that than by winning some awards. Awards are like a tangible acknowledgment of the hard work you and your business have done. But how do you go about finding and winning awards? Rebecca Barnes, publisher of Prince William Living and Brides & Weddings, will share her expertise on this matter. She will show you how to look for awards and what you need to do to apply for them. Register here. Wednesday, July 8, 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. | Online
