The WINTRADE AWARDS celebrate women from every corner of the globe, across industry sectors, who are making a difference in their field.
A DAZZLING EVENING CELEBRATING WOMEN IN BUSINESS
We want to dedicate this beautiful evening to the celebration of women in business; women who work tirelessly to be the change they want to see in the world. At the end of a hard week’s work, let’s come together and uplift each other at this dazzling event.
A GALA FOR ENTEPRISING WOMEN
Enterprise takes many forms. This global awards gala is for women making waves in corporate structures, as well as small businesses and start-ups.
In the 23 years since Dr Thompson founded the European Federation of Black Women Business Owners, she and her enterprise has supported and mentored literally thousands of women.
Now known as WinTRADE, this ever-growing network invites you to take part; take away a wealth of knowledge and inspiration to grow and support your business; and then, come Friday night, celebrate!
HIGH-PROFILE KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
In the last four years, we’ve enjoyed some fantastic, high-profile keynote speakers including Mayors, Cherie Blair and the Deputy Prime Minister of Bahamas along with well-wishing messages of support from Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, and even Nelson Mandela. In 2020, it only gets better. Speakers to be announced.
THE BEST HOTELS IN LONDON
We’ve hosted events at the prestigious Hilton Hotel, Intercontinental, and The Grosvenor Park Lane where we hosted over 1200 women and their supporters for our 12th awards dinner. This year, we look forward to returning to The Park Lane Hotel for the WINTRADE AWARDS GALA 2020

FAQs WinTRADE Awards
The Judges score each answer individually and entries are often referred back to during the awards process. You should therefore consider all questions carefully, packing them full of information that highlights the achievement of the business. However, whilst we urge you to answer all questions thoroughly, please do not exceed the word quota for each one.
Our Judges are looking for relevant, concise answers that are accurate and honest. They want to get an understanding of the business’ principles, philosophies and practices. They also want a sense of how the business became successful, as well as plans and vision for the future.
We want to ascertain if the business can show the following:
- Industry excellence
- Change agent
- Business cultural change
- Impact on stakeholders
- Inspiration and Aspiration
- Industry innovation and inventions
- Continuous Learning
- Service to the community over and above the workplace
- How this business would pay it forward (pass on its success to others)
