The NLA Property Women of the Year 2012

In 2012, I received multiple award nominations from The National Landlords Association, showcasing my outstanding contributions and recognition in the property sector. This achievement emphasises my expertise and commitment to excellence, positioning me as a distinguished professional in the field. The NLA Property Women Awards 2012 celebrated the best women working within the private rented sector. Hosted by journalist and broadcaster Katie Derham at the Chesford Grange Hotel in Warwickshire on 31st October 2012.

A Night Of Nominees & Winners

A Memorable Evening

Upon our arrival, the old hotel’s exquisite beauty struck a chord. My heart swelled with love and gratitude for my husband’s unwavering support, creating even more precious memories during our stay. Attending the event became a blend of excitement, anticipation, and pride. Hand-in-hand, we entered a room buzzing with the collective energy of like-minded professionals, fostering a palpable sense of camaraderie. The anticipation of recognition for my contributions heightened my excitement, accompanied by a subtle touch of nervousness. As the evening unfolded, discussions about women’s challenges added a meaningful layer to the event. Adding to the joy, it was heartwarming to connect with so many friends and networked colleagues from across the UK in attendance.

For me, the undeniable highlight was being part of a room dedicated to acknowledging women who embody excellence, ethics, and integrity in our evolving and demanding careers.

A Fresh Perspective

The acknowledgment of my contribution led to understanding the milestones in my career, that were taken for granted – unconsciously working with a diverse social housing background as a Project Manager and holding the internal experience as a Supported Accommodation Officer, Housing Manager, and Domestic Violence Community Safety Coordinator — roles that have honed my techniques for the private rented sector — it was at that moment that I recognised the magnitude of what I had learned personally. This comprehensive knowledge has been instrumental in navigating diverse safeguarding processes, practices, policies, and legislation, enabling me to provide equality in housing whilst promoting safer communities. This is in itself, a privilege not to be taken for granted. Moreover, this wealth of experience has inspired me to mentor others. 

The event was meticulously crafted to inspire others to adopt comparable standards, envisioning an industry where each professional mirrors our collective commitment and values.

Once again, I've experienced the benefits of selecting a coach who is both supportive and firm, guiding me through challenges and fostering growth. The value of reflection, reassessing values, and adapting beliefs has been transformative. Collaborative idea-building has been instrumental in shaping my journey.

Lifelong Friends & colleagues

Reflecting on that evening of laughter and cheering other women on still brings a smile to my face—a moment of profound happiness. Yet, my attention turns to crucial discussions about the need for thorough due diligence—examining the behaviour of agents, landlords, and investors for all forms of physical, emotional abuse and fraud. These talks are vital to rectify harmful practices, especially in houses of multiple occupations, future refuges, and other supported accommodations, where demand is high, and residents are vulnerable.

In the context of business development and leadership coaching, these discussions lay the foundation for guiding property professionals towards creating not just successful but ethical and socially responsible businesses. It’s about instilling a culture of integrity, authenticity, and positive impact, fostering an environment where the principles of business development and leadership intersect with people’s everyday lives.
