“Inspirational Business Mum of the Year” Award for Author and Entrepreneur

Antonia Chitty has been awarded the “Inspirational Business Mum of the Year” Award at this weekend’s Mumpreneur Conference in Birmingham. She says, “It is great to be recognized for the work I do to help women start and develop their own businesses. Running my own enterprise has made an enormous difference to my life and I’m passionate about inspiring others to succeed. I’m very proud to be the ‘Inspirational Business Mum of the Year'”

The Sussex-based entrepreneur started her PR own business seven years ago after the birth of her daughter so that she could work flexibly. Since then, Antonia’s business has grown and expanded, as has her family. Antonia runs Family Friendly Working, a site packed with ideas for anyone who wants a flexible way to work which grew out of one of her first books. She has written eight business, health and parenting books. Her latest release is The Mumpreneur Guide, a practical workbook for any woman who wants to start a business that fits in with the family. She is mum to Daisy, 7, Jay, 3 and Kit, 6months.
