A remarkable honour for Karen and Plum

Across the globe, within a vast amount of sectors, women continue to shatter glass ceilings and establish themselves as being a significant part of the business world. From healthcare & pharmaceuticals to aerospace & defence, even banking to media, within these industries are the powerful women who are striving daily towards great success.

Therefore, the 2017 Influential Businesswoman Awards honour the remarkable achievements made by the strong women from a diverse range of industries. These outstanding individuals have been breaking down barriers with their hard work, devotion and innovative thinking, which is why Acquisition International believe they deserve recognition.

Managing Director of Plum Communications & PR, Karen Morledge, was anonymously nominated and was subsequently presented with the prestigious award for ‘Public Relations Business Woman of the Year’ & ‘Best Marketing & Communications Agency’ – South West England.

Karen said, “I am optimistic about what the future holds for women working in PR, the PR industry as a whole, my future career and the continued development of my business”. The award won by Karen was the only company in the South West of England selected as a winner within the 32 categories and only one other PR agency (London-based) was given such an award within the industry.
