Pinner Business Woman Nidhi Agarwal In Finals
In a year full of adversity and challenge an amazing line up of finalists for The Best Business Women Awards have been announced for 2020. This is cause for celebration as most businesses have faced their most turbulent year yet.  
The finalists selected this year demonstrate how many talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs we have in UK.  Many of whom a juggle their business around the needs of their families. The Best Business Women Awards are designed to recognise the achievement of those women across a wide range industries.
Local businesswoman Nidhi Agarwal from Friends of Salaam Baalak Trust (UK) has been shortlisted as a finalist in the Charity Champion category. Friends of Salaam Baalak Trust is a UK registered charity and exists to raise funds for, and awareness about, street children in India. More details about the charity and it’s work can be found by visiting the website www.friendsofsbt.org.
Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘This is the 6th year of these prestigious awards. Given the situation with Covid 19 we were delighted with the number of entries. This showed us how determined our entrants were! The entries came in from across the UK and was judged by a panel of business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. The businesswomen selected have been chosen for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. All our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.’
Nidhi Agarwal said, ‘Thirteen years ago I mustered the courage to walk on the dingy streets of Paharganj alone to visit the boys shelter home run by Salaam Baalak Trust in Delhi with the aim to teach Mathematics to street children rehabilitated by the charity. That profound experience changed the course of my life. I came to the UK leaving my lectureship job at St. Stephen's College, Delhi, and fully-funded PhD scholarship from Government of India (UGC NET/JRF). Wanting to continue helping those children whom I had left behind, as soon as I completed my second MSc from Warwick Business School and bagged myself my first banking job, I established Friends of Salaam Baalak Trust with another Trustee Nicholas Thompson. This award is the recognition of the effort and tenacity of these thirteen years. Thank you for supporting me in the journey and for believing in me every step of the way!’
Plans for the Gala final, usually held in October, have been changed to April 2021. If any in person event cannot be safely delivered the event will be held online when the winners will be announced.
