ABC make it 1,2,3!

ABC, the Sussex based free parenting magazine, scored a hat-trick by scooping their third major award in 12 months on Friday night when they won the NatWest Small Business of the Year Venus award at the glitzy event held at the Brighton Metropole Hotel.

On 27th September following thousands of votes, hundreds of nominations and applications with a frenzy of excitement and enthusiasm the winners of the Brighton NatWest Venus Awards were announced. Tara Howard has with the help of other local business women, created the Venus Awards to recognise local business women across the UK. The moment you walked into the room you were hit with an array of emotions. The thrilled, excited and glamorous business women all gathered waiting to hear the winners announced and hopefully to collect an award.

Rachel Boyle, MD and founder of ABC said "I am so proud of the team and all our achievements. These awards are recognition that we're getting it right. Right for our clients and right for our readers - I'm absolutely delighted for everyone involved."

As a business ABC is great because it offers a unique package: a tri-annual publication, which is part directory, part information source and part light entertainment. Readers therefore read the magazine cover to cover, and then keep their copy long-term for reference, which gives advertisers excellent value for money. 

NatWest Venus Awards, were set up in 2009 by Tara Howard, to recognise the hard work, effort and skill that it can take women to successfully juggle business with other commitments.

ABC are able to add this third award to their two previous successes - in November 2012 Rachel Boyle was awarded Business Woman of the Year by Johnston Press and in May this year the hard work of the ABC Social Media team was recognised by winning The Purplebiz UK Business of the Day Twitter Award. ABC make it 1, 2, 3!
