The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees and the companies they run – worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards.

Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award winners will be announced during a gala event at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York on Friday, November 13.  Nominated women executives and entrepreneurs from the U.S.A and several other countries are expected to attend.  The event will be broadcast on Livestream via the Stevie Awards’ Facebook page from 7:30 pm ET, and the red carpet pre-show will air on the Stevie Awards’ Periscope from 6:00 pm ET.

More than 1,400 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 90 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women-Run Workplace of the Year.  Advanced Care Australia Pty Ltd is a Finalist in the ‘Women-Run Workplace of the Year’  - More Than 10 Employees category.

Finalists were chosen by more than 120 business professionals worldwide during preliminary judging.  Members of five final judging committees will determine the Gold, Silver and Bronze Stevie Award placements from among the Finalists during final judging October 19-28.

“High-achieving women entrepreneurs, organizations, and executives all over the world are an inspiration to girls and women who dream of starting and growing a business,” said Michael Gallagher, founder and president of the Stevie Awards.  “The first-round judges have told us how impressed they were with this year’s field of Finalists.  We’re looking forward to recognizing them in New York on November 13.”

'We are excited and honoured to be named as a finalist in these prestigious awards, which recognize the success of women in business world wide.

About Advanced Care Australia Pty Ltd

Founded by sisters Linda Summerton and Janet Gibbins in 2003, Advanced Care Australia’s objective is to enhance our clients’ independence and quality of life.

The company was born out of the sisters’ experience when their father was terminally ill. As he wanted to stay at home, they looked in vain for an organization which could provide support to enable this and provide  a flexible service which adapted to the family’s changing needs. Frustrated by their experience, they began Advanced Care Australia to provide flexible, responsive in-home support.
