The Scottish Women in Business (SWIB) Awards took place on Sunday 19th May at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.

Turcan Connell was delighted to sponsor the event, recognising women from across Scotland who are blazing a trail in their respective businesses. Five winners were selected who took centre stage to be recognised across the different categories. Turcan Connell sponsored The Young Star Award and Simran Panesar-Saggu, Associate from our Glasgow office, presented the award to Nikola Kelly of Be-IT. The award is given to a woman between 18-35 years old who shows exemplary innovation, creativity, leadership or business flair.
