Social pics: The IMAGE PwC Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2022

The IMAGE PwC Businesswoman of the Year Awards 2022 are over for another year, but we’re still reeling from what was such a special night for Irish women.

The IMAGE PwC Businesswoman of the Year Awards is in partnership with PwC, sponsored by Kuehne + Nagel, BMW, Glenveagh, The Executive Institute and Siro and in association with Malfy Gin, Enterprise Ireland, Movement Events, Gotcha Covered and Marks & Spencer took place last week with hundreds of the most empowering women in Ireland joining us to celebrate their achievements… and we can’t believe it’s all over for another year!

Back for its 14th year, this year’s event was momentous for many reasons – not least because it marked a return to our first in-person celebration since 2019. Honouring some of the country’s most influential leaders in one luxurious awards ceremony at the Clayton Hotel, Burlington Road, it was a hugely special occasion for female changemakers and the electricity in the room was palpable. 

An evening dedicated to excellence, we had an overwhelming response this year with over 530 applications… meaning our judges really had their work cut out for them. Managing to whittle that number down to one inspiring shortlist of nominees, just 12 overall winners were crowned on the night including Lifetime Achievement Award winner Fiona Dawson and of course the overall IMAGE PwC Businesswoman of the Year Award winner, the incredible Eva Pau, commercial director of Asia Market. All extremely well-deserving businesswomen across a broad range of industries and backgrounds, you can check out the full list of esteemed prize-holders right here

As expected, the style stakes didn’t disappoint either and there were countless standout looks on the red carpet as attendees networked and sipped on cocktails. 

#BWOTY22 trended all night and below are some of the social pics from the most glamourous night of the year for Irish businesswomen. We’re already excited for next year!
