We’re excited to announce that Ultimate Edge Communications Founder and CEO, Aleisha McCall, has been named on the shortlist for this year’s B&T’s Women in Media Awards.
After being announced on the ‘Power List’ last month, she has now been named a finalist alongside nine other trailblazing women in the ‘Entrepreneur’ category.
The Women in Media Awards recognise those exceptional women who have achieved success in their professional arenas and celebrates their invaluable contribution to their industry through their leadership, innovation and courage.
“While many of us just want 2020 to be a distant memory, the truth is, this year has proven just how brave, courageous, and inspirational the women in Australian media are,” says B&T’s Ally Burnie.
“The calibre of entrants in this year’s B&T’s Women in Media Awards is higher than ever.
“Our judges had an incredibly difficult time whittling down the list to the final shortlist.”
Aleisha has long been hailed as a highflier in the media industry, after being named a finalist in B&T’s 30 Under 30 Entrepreneur list in 2017 and winning the Women in Media Rising Star award in 2014.
Earlier this month, she was also named as a nominee for the coveted People’s Choice Award, for which voting is open here and now. If you can spare a few seconds and three simple clicks, your vote would be a great testament to the hard work of Aleisha and the UEC team. Voting closes at 5pm on October 7.
“I am humbled to be recognised as a finalist for the Entrepreneur Award amongst so many amazing women who I respect and admire,” McCall says.
“I feel very fortunate to be in an industry I love, running a company I am inspired by every day and helping our clients achieve amazing results to stay one step ahead.”
Originally booked for a night of festivities at Doltone House on Jones Bay Wharf, a decision has since been made to host the ceremony virtually on Wednesday, October 28, from 4pm-5:30pm. You can register to attend the online event here.
