Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce is delighted to announce that Dawn Hardman, Director of HR, and Andrea Borwell-Fox, President of the Chamber, have received two nominations each in the Wonderful Worcestershire Awards. The awards aim to recognise those in business who are going the extra mile to support firms and the community in the county.

Dawn Hardman joined Sharon Smith, Chief Executive, Abigail Robbins, HR Executive, and Jim McBride, Chairman, last year at the World Chambers Competition in Sydney, Australia. The Chamber was recognised for Worcestershire Works Well, a health and wellbeing accreditation scheme that supports businesses to improve the wellness of their employees.
Dawn is part of the steering group of Worcestershire Works Well, which recently celebrated its 100th business to sign up to the scheme late last year. Dawn has been recognised in the Director of the Year and Volunteer of the Year for her work supporting Worcester Live, Worcester Music Festival and Severn Sounds.
The Chamber has been working closely with Andrea to develop regular events like the Women’s Business Forum, and most recently by launching the second President Lecture Series – a three part series which provides attendees with the opportunity to learn from the extensive knowledge of high level speakers.
The second series follows on from the success of the initial events, allowing firms to add further value to future team training and development programmes. This year we welcomed the likes of Paul Kehoe CBE, Dr Zaheer Shah and Beth Tweddle, discussing the unique experiences of their lives.
Andrea has been nominated in both the Entrepreneur of the Year and Significant Achievement of the Year for her work both in and outside of the Chamber. Andrea said that by winning these awards would provide her with the opportunity to further promote Worcestershire, its business community and in particular, its women entrepreneurs and women in the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) sectors.
The Chamber would like to ask the community to support your local Chamber representatives by voting in the Wonderful Worcestershire Awards at
