2009 British Female Inventor and Innovator of the Year Award: Finalist
The BFIIN is an annual award that recognises and promotes the success stories of women in the UK in the areas of engineering, design, technology and manufacturing. All entrants for the award have come through the challenges of turning an idea into reality.
The awards are run by Global Women Inventors & Innovators Network (GWIIN) the international network which aims to increase the number of innovative women embracing enterprise.
In June 2009, after a competitive selection and judging process, Skibz Managing Director, Helen Bristol, was recognised for her achievements in business, receiving a Special Recognition of Achievement award from the British Female Inventors and Innovators Network.
“Many women in Britain have got commercially viable ideas and they have an incredible range of skills and talents,” says Helen. “I’m thrilled that my achievements with Skibz have been recognised by BFIIN.”
