Business owner Catherine Turner could soon be adding another award to her growing list.

Following her success as Female Entrepreneur of the Year in the Slough Business Awards the 42 year old Winkfield mum of two has been selected as a finalist for the Venus awards – Thames Valley.

She is one of three out of 55 ladies who entered in category Business Mother of the Year.

In the end it was being mum to Olivia, 15, that helped her make the big jump to the final.

Mrs Turner, who owns recruitment companies Rapid Search and Interim and Firefly Human Capital in Thames Street, Windsor, was asked to make a 60 second video to put on U-tube when she entered the Venus awards.

She said: “I remembered that my daughter was doing a GCSE in photography and she got one of her friends at school to make the video. It seemed to do the trick.”

Mrs Turner also has a son Finlay, 11.

The Venus Awards were founded by a woman called Tara Howard, whose family runs a hotel business.

The award winners will be announced on June 9.

Only six months ago Mrs Turner also won the ‘most inspirational leader’ prize at the Recruiter’s Investing in Talent Awards.
