The Managing Director of Swallowcourt, a care provider operating six Nursing and Residential Care Homes in Cornwall was last week recognised for her leadership of the group at a prestigious national awards ceremony in London.
Triumphing over strong competition, Leah Marsh scooped both the Business Hero Silver Award and Corporate Leader Gold Award at the National Business Women’s Awards held at the Hilton London in Wembley on Friday 18th November.
Organisers of The National Business Women’s Awards explained the Business Hero Award recognised those who have gone above and beyond in the face of adversity and the Corporate Leader Award was in recognition of an individual who has demonstrated being a proven leader, energising and inspiring people within their organisation.
On winning this reputable National Award Leah said “It was truly humbling to have been short-listed as a finalist for these awards alongside so many highly esteemed and enterprising female business leaders and to have won was just amazing”. Mrs Marsh went on to say “I am delighted to have been recognised, however these achievements are a testament to a wider leadership team at Swallowcourt and of course the dedication and true frontline heroes across all of the Swallowcourt homes that I have the privilege to work with and I hope that in some way this recognition helps to highlight both Cornwall and Social Care on a national stage”.
