BUSINESSWOMAN Suzy Orr has won the Best Networker trophy in the Liverpool Lifestyle Awards – for the second time!
Suzy, the founder of Unique Ladies Network which runs monthly meetings in Liverpool’s Park Hotel, won the award for supporting and inspiring women across the North-west.
Awards’ organiser, businesswoman and publisher Amanda Moss said that Suzy “brought companies together and shared her knowledge, helping others connect in business.”
Suzy, who lives in Chorley where she is also Co-director of Windoworld, began Unique Ladies three years ago as a hobby. After opening a group near Wigan, she opened another in Bolton and further groups in Manchester city centre and Preston before starting the Liverpool group last year.
She recently started franchising the successful brand and will be opening new groups in Bury and Stockport in September.
Suzy began Unique Ladies because she was unhappy with other networking groups. “I wanted something different,” she recalled. “I didn’t want people to have to pay a regular membership and I wanted plenty of genuine networking available as well as inspirational speakers.”
The pay-as-you-go model worked and, for Suzy, her success led to her receiving the Best Networker trophy in the Liverpool awards last year. “I’m absolutely thrilled to bits to receive this award for a second time and I’d like to thank everyone who voted for me,” she stated.
Her award was presented at the highly successful annual Lifestyle awards at The Liner Hotel . Added Amanda Moss: “This is the business networking event of the year in Liverpool and I’m proud to organise something which hopefully inspires and excites people in business and recognises people like Suzy.”
