Wista UK celebrating International Women's dayIn recognition of Guardian Maritime’s ongoing success, Teresa Stevens was awarded “Entrepreneur of the Year Award” by WISTA-UK, at their prestigious presentation evening.

WISTA-UK’s event, at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) was a celebration of many things – a celebration of the 2014 International Personality of the Year, the Entrepreneur of 2015, the ‘Came by SHIP’ competition winner and, most importantly, a celebration of women in shipping.

Teresa said that she was delighted to receive the award and emphasised the importance of WISTA’s role in supporting young women in all areas of the maritime industry, “Shipping is below the radar in the UK and I think that women need to rally together and encourage one another to build up their network of contacts. Without the encouragement and support of WISTA-UK I probably wouldn’t be here accepting this award,” she said.

Teresa continued, “I was delighted to attend the event and feel very proud to have achieved recognition from an industry I feel so passionately about. It was a great evening, and provided an ideal opportunity to network with people from across the maritime sector.”
