“I’ve always been influenced and inspired by so many incredible women. As a Mam to my own little strong woman, I feel passionate about empowering others through my business and my personal life. Llais Cymru’s Welsh Women in Business Awards is unique, a platform to celebrate and champion all female business owners across Wales, and inspiring more women of all ages and backgrounds to follow their business dreams.”

Heulwen Davies, Director of Llais Cymru.

Who is it for?


The #LlaisAwards are open to any woman running any type of business in Wales. It’s not about the size of the business, it’s about the woman who runs it.




There are 14 Award categories to reflect the wide variety of businesses in Wales today. Everything from ‘Green Business’ to ‘Retal Champion’ to ‘Mums in Business’. You’ll see the list at the top of the nomination form.


Who can nominate?


You can nominate yourself or nominate someone else. You can nominate as many women as you like but you can’t nominate the same woman twice.


Nomination process?


Nominations open on the 8th of March and will close on the 8th of June. Click on the nominate now button below to get started.




The shortlist is based on the number of nominations, so spread the word and let’s get as many nominations as we can! If we get a tie, an independent panel will interview the finalists and decide on the category winner. The shortlist of the top two in each category will be announced in July. Sign up to the newsletter to be the first to hear.




The top two in each category and their guests will be invited to the special in person Awards night in September – more news to follow! 


Diolch – huge thanks to Banc Datblygu Cymru – The Development Bank of Wales for being the main sponsor for the 4th year running!
