Julianne Ponan is the 28-year-old CEO of a superfoods company. Creative Nature has enjoyed a great deal of success this September, seeming to go from strength to strength. Julianne has been awarded with the coveted Worldplay Everywoman Retail Ambassador title as a part of the Everywoman in Retail Ambassador Programme. The CEO received this award at an event that was held in London this month.
The Worldplay Everywoman Retail Ambassadors are chosen as a reflection of what success looks like at all ages and stages of a career in retail, across all of the different divisions in the industry. The co-founder of Everywoman, Maxine Benson said that this year, the ambassadors that have been selected are true advocates for the reinvention of the retail industry. All of the judges agreed that the selected ambassadors are an amazing example of the best talent in the industry.
It is thought that the release of success stories like Julianne’s is what the industry needs in order to highlight how diverse the retail industry is and the availability of a range of ever evolving retail job roles. Being selected to become an Everywoman Retail Ambassador is very prestigious, and as those selected, including Julianne, prepare to become ambassadors, the organisation is confident that the talent selected this year will have a great impact on the retail industry. Hopefully this year’s ambassadors will add to the work carried out by previous ambassadors and inspire talented women to follow in their footsteps.
In the same week as being announced as an Everywoman Ambassador, Julianne was also named as Young Entrepreneur of the Year at the Forward Ladies National Awards 2017, which is an event held this month in London. On top of this Julianne has been announced as a finalist for the Institute of Directors Awards for Young Director of the Year as well as a Finalist at the Women in Business Awards for Role Model of the Year. Finally, Julianne is also a Finalist in the Best Business Women’s Awards which will be held on the 12th October 2017.
