An award-winning entrepreneur from Cornwall was invited to enjoy afternoon tea at the House of Lords to celebrate the achievements of businesswomen from around the country in honour of International Women’s Day.

Katherine George, founder of social media marketing agency Oh So Social and online training platform Oh So Savvy, was named as one of the top 100 female entrepreneurs in the UK by f:Entrepreneur recently, and she joined the other 99 inspirational women named in the list for the special celebration event, hosted by Lord Young of Graffham, at the House of Lords on Monday.

Katherine, whose company is based in Penryn, was named in the inaugural #ialso 100 list by f:Entrepreneur for not only establishing successful multi-award-winning social media agency Oh So Social, but also for her work on the Facebook #SheMeansBusiness campaign supporting other female entrepreneurs and start-up businesses with social media training.

Plus, she has also recently launched a sister company, Oh So Savvy, which offers entrepreneurs and small businesses globally affordable online social media training and expert support.

Katherine said: “It is an absolute honour to be named in the f:Entrepreneur #ialso Top 100, and especially alongside so many inspirational and hard-working women. I think the campaign is a fantastic way to show that you can pursue different projects and passions, as well as a personal life, and be a success in business.

“Visiting the House of Lords was truly one of those ‘pinch me’ moments!”

F:Entrepreneur’s #ialso Top 100 is a campaign born from International Women’s Day 2018. During the event, the phrase used most by the gathered entrepreneurs was “I also…”, with each woman describing their work as being much more than a single-job career and more of a flexible portfolio.

"The aim of f:Entrepreneur is to showcase multi-achieving women like Katherine in the #ialso Top 100 providing lessons of challenge and success for all small business founders – both men and women."
