Janet Thornton winners of the Business Woman of the Year category at the BIBAs 2014.
When Janet Thornton, chief executive of Lancashire energy broker Inspired Energy, stepped on stage at the BIBAs 2014 to collect her Business Woman of the Year trophy, she was not alone.
The boss was not only joined by a number of ecstatic colleagues who had joined her for the star-studded night at the Blackpool Tower, but all those who could not join her on the night.
Speaking to the sell-out crowd in the venue’s Circus Ballroom, Janet said: “I must accept this on behalf of the entire team at Inspired Energy, who are just fantastic.
“They energise me every day with their commitment and make my job so pleasurable as chief executive.
“Every credit to the organising team here at the BIBAs as it has been such a wonderful evening; winning this has been the icing on a great year to date.
“I must congratulate all of those shortlisted as it just goes to show the incredibly high standard of women in business in this great county of ours.”
