RUTH AMOS SCOOPS NOAW AWARDS Inspirational young entrepreneur, Ruth Amos has won two awards in the National Network of Aspiring Women Awards, at the inspiring, glitzy event attended by 250 guests at Villa Park Birmingham last Friday. Ruth was the overall winner and also winner of the Young Entrepreneur award. She was presented with the coveted awards by Jo Cameron, founder of the Network of Aspiring Women and Alison Plant – Head of Hospitality and Events, Aston Villa. Ruth said that she was absolutely thrilled and delighted to have won, she directed her thanks to her family for their support and also to the team at Room54 who nominated her for the award. 21 year old Managing Director Ruth Amos has seen the steady growth of her StairSteady brand, which started with a GCSE project to enable her teacher’s ailing father to use the stairs confidently, to becoming a household name. Ruth beat off stiff competition from some of the UK’s leading women. Jo Cameron said “I extend my congratulations to Ruth in what has been a super year of nominations. Over 200 applied this year which is superb”. In her inspiring keynote address on the day, Jo Cameron outlined why women are key to building the economies of the future and why women’s style of leadership is perfectly suited to steering the resurgence. Jo Cameron said “Ruth was selected as the overall winner because she stood out above everyone else. What the judges liked about Ruth was the way she breaks all stereotypes, her award winning pedigree but mostly about the way that she is so determined to share her lessons with others too. Being an entrepreneur can be a tough life but she had a vision and didn’t stop until she achieved it; making a difference to people’s lives in the process. Simply brilliant.” “The Network of Aspiring Women is all about inspiring women to go further with their ambitions. Ruth is a prime example of what we stand for.” “Ruth is such a brilliant example of someone who had an idea and turned it into something real. A invaluable trait for anyone thinking of setting up in business.” In 2012 the Annual Awards event will move to the evening and a conference will follow the next day.

When Preethi Nair speaks it is clear to everyone that she really believes anything is possible if you are determined enough. Her journey to becoming a published author is remarkable: she invented a PR company and Publishing House and got two of everything: emails; phones; faxes and began promoting her work. Her alter ego, Prue Menon was even short-listed as Publicist of the Year!

One person wrote this recently about Preethi’s speaking style:

‘Everyone was inspired & touched by Preethi’s personal journey and the huge challenges she took on to achieve her dreams. Her verve and determination to pursue what she believed in just amazed the audience. Some of them were mobilized to get started on their aspirations and some were excited about the new possibilities that were open to them. Preethi is an incredibly authentic speaker and always touches a chord!’

Motivational speaker Preethi Nair is an author who has a very unusual story about how she got her work published.  Now, the BBC has bought the rights to one of her novels to produce an adaptation.  Her positive attitude will inspire you!

Preethi couldn’t find a publisher to publish her novels and so undaunted, she set up her own publishing company and PR company working under an alias (or several even!)  Preethi’s story reveals her humour and determination – at one point, one of her aliases ‘Pru’ was short-listed as Publicist of the Year!  Clearly there were nightmare moments but Preethi’s belief in her dream kept her going.

As Preethi puts it’ Dream big even if you don’t know the rules – and if no one wants to play, devise a different set, keep believing.’  Preethi has published three novels: 100 Shades of White, Gypsy Masala, and Beyond Indigo.
