Moray Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive Sarah Medcraf, Dundee and Angus Chief Executive Alison Henderson and SCC Director and Partner of law firm DLA Piper, Hazel Moffat were recognised for their outstanding contributions to business as inspiring female leaders in Scotland.

More than 300 people attended the ceremony held on Wednesday 28th August at the Glasgow Crowne Plaza Hotel, representing a range of sectors including business, sport and technology.

Sarah Medcraf collected the key award of the night – Women of Influence – while Alison Henderson was a finalist in the same category.

Sarah, who has no idea who nominated her for the award, said: “I’m delighted – it was a really strong category of women from across Scotland. It was an absolute honour to be shortlisted and to be awarded the accolade is really special to me.”

Hazel Moffat received the Services to Law award for the second year in a row.

Scottish Chambers of Commerce Chief Executive Dr Liz Cameron OBE congratulated both the winners and finalists at the Ceremony, in particular extending her congratulations to Hazel, Sarah and Alison, saying: “It is worth highlighting that there is plenty of evidence to show that emphasis on diversity is key to business and economic success. SCC would like to see more female role models such as those we are highlighting today to inspire an inclusive style of leadership in business and civic Scotland. SCC is dedicated to playing its part in supporting the current and next generation of female business leaders and these awards will act as further inspiration for us all.”
