Hannah on being shortlisted for the Real Estate, Infrastructure and Construction category has said, “I was thrilled when I saw the note in my inbox confirming I had been shortlisted and couldn’t hide the smile on my face, despite the prospect of an interview with the judges looming. The network and awareness Pinky has generated for WOF is phenomenal, I couldn’t be prouder to be part of the 10 year celebration. Increasing awareness of the abundance of career possibilities to women in construction is very important to me, if I can achieve it then there is nothing to stop others doing the same and better, you’ve just got to believe in yourself and see what the future can hold.”
