bartlett mitchell scores a hat trick of award nominations

Lin Dickens, Business development & Marketing Director and Sarah Prentice, Sales Manager

bartlett mitchell is in the enviable position of being shortlisted for three awards across two major annual award schemes.

Two members of the bartlett mitchell team are finalists in The Women 1st Shine Awards, the only event that celebrates the amazing achievements of women working in the hospitality, passenger transport, travel and tourism industries. Each year, they celebrate the brightest and best individuals who are paving the way for women right across our industries. Lin Dickens, our Sales and Marketing Director, and Sarah Prentice, Sales Manager for the company, are finalists for the Mentor of the Year Award and Stepping Up Award respectively.

bartlett mitchell is also celebrating its place as a finalist for the Health & Nutrition Catey for its DARE (Delicious & Responsible Eating) campaign. The Cateys, now in their 30th year, are run by leading hospitality industry publication, Caterer & Hotelkeeper, and are regarded as the ‘industry Oscars’.

“For the individuals involved and us as a company, to be a finalist in these awards is incredible. Lin and Sarah are both inspirational people and true role models for working women. Both continue to achieve so much in their careers and balance the needs of family life very successfully.”

“To be a finalist for a Catey is also a major achievement for David James, our Food Services Director, and his team and recognises the excellent work they have done on DARE. We would love to win all three of these awards but just to be a finalist across such a wide and diverse industry as ours is a huge achievement in itself. We’re very proud of them all and keeping everything crossed for the awards nights when the winners will be announced.”

Wendy Bartlett, Managing Director

The winners of the Women 1st Shine Awards will be announced at a gala dinner on 19th June and The Cateys will be held on 2nd July.
