Deadline for Shine Award nominations nears

The deadline for nominations to the Shine Awards 2010 is fast approaching and are set to close on 3 January.

The awards, which are supported by industry training body People 1st, are the only UK awards for female talent in travel, tourism and hospitality industry.

Last year's winner, Karen Eason, said: "The Shine Awards are unique because they acknowledge and celebrate the talent and success that exists in women working in the travel & tourism industry. For me personally to be associated and acknowledged as a successful young entrepreneur and described as charismatic and inspirational is truly rewarding for the time, commitment and risks I have taken in the industry.

This year for the first time winners will be awarded exceptional learning and development opportunities, worth thousands' of pounds, courtesy of top class providers such as Cranfield University, Bradford School of Management, Henley Management College and Everywoman.
